Reviving shrinking cities – innovative paths and perspectives towards livability for shrinking cities in Europe

Project description

Solutions for shrinking cities

Some cities will shrink. The shrinking city phenomenon is multidimensional, stemming from urban decline that can be caused by a number of issues – from depletion of natural resources to deindustrialisation and migration. Whatever the cause, studies show that decline is usually enduring, and the shrinkage poses a threat to European competitiveness. In this context, the EU-funded RE-CITY project will provide a perspective for the robust and sustainably sound development of shrinking cities while supporting elements of economic prosperity, liveability, social stability and innovation. Bringing together 16 academic and non-academic partners who represent expertise in spatial planning, geography, economics and social science, the project will develop solutions for shrinking cities.
