A Call for best policies and practices by EUCANET

EUCANET, the European Agencies Network for citizenship, inclusion, involvement and empowerment of communities through the urban transformation process, is launching a call for best policies and practices. EUCANET is co-founded by the Europe for Citizens Programme and it involves five partners from four countries: Urban Center Metropolitano Torino and Urban Center Bologna from Italy, City of Marseille from France, city of Skopje from Macedonia and Cluj Metropolitan Area Intercommunity Development Association from Romania.

In this first phase the EUCANET partnership is starting with an exploration of the ongoing projects, experiences, practices and/or policies related to citizenship, inclusion, involvement and empowerment of communities through the urban transformation process.

This Call for best policies and practices is open to all the local authorities, institutions, profit and no-profit organizations located in a EU Member State, that are interested in showing and sharing their experiences on the urban field. The results of this outreach will be published on EUCANET project website. Furthermore a selection of the best policies and practices will have the chance to be published on the second EUCANET E-Book.

The submission deadline is fixed on 30 September 2017.

The very interesting feature of this call is that it’s focused on policies, instead of being limited to the practices. This approach is in line with LabGov, that through the CO-Cities project* is elaborating a methodology in order to produce a body of law and urban policies driven by unitary values and principles.
