Urban best practices

Objective

URBEST is a communication project on urban best practices aiming at involving relevant stakeholders in a wide debate on socio-economic and technological innovation in urban areas. It brings together content providers (experts in urban issues, development agencies, networks of cities) and communication experts (TV producers and TV Channels). URBEST will organise a cycle of 6 months TV programmes to be broadcast on a network of European TV Channels. The TV programmes will have a common structure. They will show examples of European best practices, compare them with the local situation and host a debate with local stakeholders. Exchange of information among TV Channels will run through an internet based information platform. TV programmes across Europe are expected to produce different debates reflecting local approaches. URBEST will have characters of openness (other media will be able to join during the project) and repeatability.
