Become an URBACT Good Practice City

03 February 2017

European cities are called to share the solutions and processes they have successfully put in place to respond to current economic, health, social and environmental urban challenges at a time of increasing scarcity of resources.

Sustainable Food Cities Network members have lots of good practice to share in sustainable integrated urban development. You can apply to:

- Be part of the pioneering group of URBACT Good Practices to be widely promoted at EU and international level
- Be able to share the Good Practice within the framework of a Transfer Network (Call to be published in September 2017)

All the cities with selected good practices will be awarded the title URBACT Good Practice City. The label will provide your city with the recognition and visibility it deserves for the results accomplished.

Furthermore, a specially conceived mix of communication and promotional activities will be put in place to promote the label, your city’s practice and the story that lies behind it. First of all, a Good Practice Festival will be organised in September 2017, where all the selected cities with good practices will take part and have the opportunity to network with European and city policy-makers. Other materials such as publications, presentations, videos and infographics will be produced and shared with urban practitioners from all over Europe, making sure that your story gets known.

By becoming an URBACT Good Practice City, you’ll have the chance to advocate for sustainable and integrated urban development at URBACT events and capacity-building activities (workshops and conferences at programme and project level) including the activities related to the contribution to Urban Agenda for EU.

Last but not least, the label will also allow you to share your experience within the framework of a Transfer Network. This will not only allow you to lead and mentor the process of understanding and reusing your practice, but also to better refine and improve it by using an in-depth peer-review methodology.

Deadline to apply is 31st March 2017
