Co-creation in practice, an interregional debate @ Fabrica Ciudad, Habitat III

On 18 October, EUKN co-organised the Fábrica Ciudad event called "Co-creation in practice, an interregional debate" together with Pakhuis de Zwijger. During this event, discussants explored what "meaningful participation" in implementing the New Urban Agenda actually means. How does this work in practice? What are inspiring examples? Policy-makers and city-makers exchanged concrete practices in various countries, in different regions in the world. More information on the Fábrica Ciudad can be found here.

  • Mart Grisel – director EUKN
  • Klio Krajewska – 7 Billion Urbanists
