Four years, six action neighbourhoods, one consortium that worked closely together; all of this will come to an end with our Final Conference on 17 June 2021, 14 – 16:30. It will be the perfect moment to reflect, draw conclusions and share our stories with you.

What can you expect?

The event, which will be livestreamed on several online platforms, including Youtube and Twitter, is hosted by Karen Vancluysen, Secretary General of the POLIS Network.

Three panels will showcase the highlights of each action neighbourhood, which will give you some advice how to start your own co-creation action. The project aims to demonstrate that co-creation can have deeper effects than just a visual restructuring of an urban area, but can have long-lasting effects of cooperation between a diverse set of stakeholders and social groups.
