Making cities inclusive and sustainable
A consortium of 12 partners from across the EU is addressing one of today’s most pressing social issues: inclusion and sustainability. Taking into consideration the new forms of so-called mobile dwellings, the EU-funded SMARTDEST project will consider the effects of tourism mobilities on urban inclusion and cohesion. Its goal is to contribute towards urban policy agendas that take tourism and its social effects seriously. Specifically, the project will analyse tourism mobilities and mobile dwelling as transformative force-fields for places. It will also excavate social exclusion issues and coping practices through engagement with affected communities in case study cities. Another task is the development of CityLabs as sites for the design of people-based and place-based solutions.
