Come in! The joint policy challenge of the Come in! Transfer network partner cities is to mobilise citizens, foster civilian power and urban stewardship through raising awareness towards the values of built heritage to decrease social isolation. This also highlights the brokerage role of municipalities reating conditions for stakeholders to creatively shape urban environment and public policies.
This will be achieved by transferring the Good Practice developed by Preston in this area.
Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons
Thus, we should play an active role as educational policy-makers. Playful Paradigm Cities offer unique opportunities for addressing the challenges of urbanization, ageing, climate change, social exclusion, only if enabling, enjoyable places are co-created.
Games offer new strategies for engaging city stakeholders in urban development. Re-growCity Re-growCity Transfer network focuses on the development of interventions that built on local capabilities to arrest and reverse long term social, economic and environmental decline. Altena has a track record of recognised good practices that facilitate the development of sustainable initiatives with a minimum of external resource input.
This network will support partners to revitalise public services and the economy, regenerate the urban fabric and develop civil society in a context of long term decline. RU:RBAN This Transfer network builds upon the "Management model of Urban gardens in Rome" Good Practice, in order to transfer to EU cities geographically distant from each other to ensure sharing of experiences to enhance the capacities of local governance. The transfer of the good practice developed by Amadora addresses this key policy challenge. This represents a serious challenge, as ELET has significant societal and individual consequences, such as a higher risk of unemployment, poverty, marginalization and social exclusion.
Tackling ELET means breaking the cycle of deprivation and the intergenerational transmission of poverty and inequality. Tech Revolution Tech Revolution Transfer network transfers the good practice of Enterprising Barnsley, based on their experiences of the Digital Media Centre, business support programmes and associated spin off activities. By facilitating growth in knowledge based jobs and businesses across all sectors and industries we aim to connect EU partners to share ideas and practices and benchmark them against other EU cities to inform the development of an 'ecosystem' needed to encourage digital growth, and transformational economies.
Tropa Verde Tropa Verde is a Transfer network to encourage environmentally responsible behaviour that empowers citizens to reuse and recycle. Combining web platform and low cost campaigns, it is considered as a "civic movement fully committed to sustainability and circular economy".
Citizens get vouchers and exchange them for rewards from the City Council and local retailers.
It connects places where disposing waste green points, civic and social centres, etc. The focus of the network will be to research, identify and apply the key success factors, which bring life back to historical areas but also bring the citizens back to regenerated areas. Volunteering Cities This Transfer network makes use of Volunteerism to approach social exclusion and poverty at the community level.
Focus is given to an inter-generational collaboration where different age groups of both volunteers and individuals facing social problems work towards a sustainable evolution of the quality of life within local society.

The network aims at structuring the volunteering activity giving validity to a bottom up approach, where volunteers can decide and implement actions. Welcoming International Talent This Transfer network focus on Higher education and knowledge economy, both have become a global competition for talent. Whereas the main European cities attract both students and skilled-workers by their scale and fame, medium-sized cities, like Groningen, will need a policy to attract talent, and to keep them economically active.
In this project the best practice of Groningen, a welcoming policy for International Students and skilled workers, will be transferred. These sites often have a negative impact on their surroundings, nevertheless they present a great opportunity: they can be used to complete a compact settlement structure, to provide space for needed functions in the city.

Agri-food production is a mature industry that continues to play an important role in terms of GDP, employment and environmental sustainability. That is why new growth potentials must be activated by means of innovation, new business models and strategies. Our vision is to place cities at the core of a growing global movement that recognizes the current complexity of food systems and the links between rural cities and nearby cities as a way to ensure regional development.

As a result of this global flow, one can observe a rapid change in the population structure and interactions between individuals and social groups: cities of migration are places of inclusion and exclusion. In this sense, Arrival Cities took place against a backcloth of rising discrimination and prejudice against immigrants. The network's cities have had to tackle the new and old challenges to ensure the migrants' integration. BoostInno The work developed by the cities of this Action Planning network has proven that social innovation is not just a trend, but it could also be qualified as a fundamental change in the management of cities, in the management of impact and in the relations cities uphold and develop with their inhabitants.
Some would describe this change as an equivalent of the industrial or the IT revolution: up until now, one of the basic assumptions of urban policy was that citizens were to accept what is decided, planned and built. Recent years have shown that it is often the citizens who make the city, in a collaborative perspective. In times when personal sacrifices are much needed to tackle burning societal issues, fostering and enabling collaboration at local level of public administration is of the utmost importance.
The partners of this Action Planning network had the opportunity to reflect upon social design, a process to think over alongside local stakeholders how to co-design their social public services towards a more collaborative service. This means to create an urban strategy that somehow engages volunteers to improve communities and public services, reducing costs at the same time. CityCentreDoctor The cities of this Action Planning network were challenged to identify the urban issues relate to their city centre, analyse perceptions and reality of those areas.
All cities have a centre which historically and functionally brings residents, businesses, services and a range of social activities together. Thus, the involved cities shared ideas and practices, supporting each other to develop actions to strengthen the revitalisation of their city centres which is often the nexus for social, cultural and, ultimately, economic local development. CityMobilNet Cities that suffer from congestion, emission loads, social exclusion and, lastly decrease of the quality of life, have gathered in this Action Planning network.
By sharing and addressing challenges of their mobility reality, the cities created a common vision towards identifying suitable measures and actions for the coming years and improving the competencies of all involved stakeholders. Everything can relate to a single question: how can we make freight transport more effective in cities?
Gen-Y City Over the last decades, younger people have increasingly chosen to live in urban areas, whilst the share of older residents in cities has generally fallen. Nevertheless, the impact of wage levels and different unemployment rates across Europe has lead youngsters to move mainly to big cities. In this, sense this Action Planning network aimed on developing, attracting and retaining young local talent, particularly, the creative talent from the Generation Y - people who were born between and - within cities of all sizes. The network pioneered on how the policy concept of smart specialisation applies to the urban environment, more precisely the Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation RIS3.
These cities learn from each other and help each other to develop local strategies in order to make their cities an attractive place to live, work and visit. The network focuses on the implementation of innovative models through integrated and sustainable local strategies. Just as important, it provides tools to support local community organizing in a way that reflects your goals, vision, and values. The city pages are fully customizable to add: photos, text about your local movement, unique action buttons that you can tailor to your needs, links to get involved, events, news, shared resources and a sharing city map.
An overwhelming request from local sharing groups was to develop a central tool for sharing information among cities. We have been assessing various peer-to-peer learning and communication tools for the last 6 months and are open to suggestions. We will use this until we further assess about how members communicate and share information. After completing the virtual infrastructure, we put out a call for 20 cities to join the Sharing Cities Network and were thrilled to receive over 30 requests to create pages for the initial launch.
In the coming months, we will bring more city pages online on a rolling basis and continue to receive feedback about how this network can best be of service before updating the platform to better fill those needs. Some cities are just getting started. Some easy ways to grow a young local sharing movement are:. It is now being replicated across the U. Racism and Sport. Anna I. When they are interested in this approach, we can plan further steps.
