The EUKN is the only independent, Member State-driven network in the field of European urban policy, research and practice.  

Our primary focus is working with European national and regional governments to promote sustainable urban development. We provide our members with expertise and tailored events, as well as fostering collaboration within our network, to create the just, green, productive and digitised cities of the future.  

We work closely with our members as they develop and evolve their National Urban Policy, facilitating transformative development on city, regional and national levels.  

European core, global reach.

We also collaborate with European and global partners on agenda-setting research in urban development. With a focus on implementing sustainable, inclusive urban policy worldwide, our collaborations include projects for the Urban Agenda for the EU, the New Urban Agenda and the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.
