Multi-stakeholder design platforms and public-private-people partnerships for sustainable cities


This action should:

  • map and assess existing initiatives and knowledge and come up with guidelines about innovative ways of implementing urban spatial quality through multi-stakeholder design platforms, also accounting for the gender dimension;
  • organise face-to-face multi-stakeholder workshops in order to connect all relevant players in the field and stimulate the development of a pan-European sustainable network of active urban design labs in Europe and beyond;
  • stimulate the establishment of a European reference framework on innovative urban spatial policy through the network of urban design labs in European cities;
  • assess innovative public-private-people partnerships to finance sustainable cities, create a living repository on existing financing instruments such as green bonds, social impact bonds, land-value capture and revolving loan funds, and test such financing instruments against innovative bottom-up, citizen-led business models and financing tools.
