Eurocities2011:Σχεδιάζοντας για τους ανθρώπους


Σχεδιάζοντας για τους ανθρώπους (Γένοβα 2-5 Νοεμβρίου 2011)

Το ευρωπαϊκό δίκτυο Eurocities οργανώνει το ετήσιο συνέδριό του στη Γένοβα με θέμα μια νέα προσέγγιση για την αστική ανάπλαση, επικεντρωμένη λιγότερο στο χώρο και περισσότερο στους ανθρώπους. Αξιοποιώντας τη δημιουργικότητα, τις δεξιότητες, τις ιδέες, την ενέργεια των πολιτών τους, οι δημοτικές αρχές δύνανται να αναμορφώσουν υποβαθμισμένες περιοχές, προωθώντας την κοινωνική συνοχή. Σε αυτό το πλαίσιο, το συνέδριο θα διερευνήσει πολιτικές για την αντιμετώπιση των προκλήσεων της μετανάστευσης, των ανισοτήτων και της ασφάλειας στα αστικά κέντρα.

Στη διάρκεια του συνεδρίου θα δωθούν τα βραβεία Eurocities2011 εστιασμένα στους τομείς Innovation, Cooperation, Participation.
