Programme

There is so much great content to discover in this edition of the Festival! We had a great job curating the results of over 200 cities and tailoring it for you. Of course being URBACT, everything is integrated! Whichever sessions you choose, you will find thought-provoking cases, inspiring speakers and plenty to discuss.

To help you navigate the sessions, we have organised them in three main strands:

...
Green cities
following the main Festival theme, these sessions tackle issues around climate change, energy transition, circular economy
Inclusive cities
covering issues around ending homelessness, culture for all, and inclusive policymaking
Connected and attractive cities
covering innovation, digitalisation, mobility, economic transitions and more to help cities stand out
