Hybrid event (on-site in Madrid with online streaming available)

This Policy Lab is organised in close cooperation with the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA) to take place on 16 November, 10:00-17:00 CET in Madrid, Spain, with online streaming available.

The 2020 New Leipzig Charter reiterates the core message of its predecessor, the 2007 Leipzig Charter on Sustainable European Cities, to move past the silo mentality and towards an ‘integrated approach’ in urban policies. This powerful concept has come a long way since 2007 but, while having entered the policy mainstream of EU Member States, its implementation has been riddled with challenges.

During the event, pioneering examples of the integrated approach in urban policies at different scales, and both in the Spanish and wider European contexts will be explored. The main objectives set for the day are:

  1. To exchange knowledge and experiences on the incorporation of the integrated approach in urban policies;
  2. To learn from context-specific policies and programmes at different levels: EU, national, and local;
  3. To inspire local experimentation and uptake of the concept based on the wider policy context for sustainable urban development envisioned by the New Leipzig Charter, and in the framework of the Spanish Urban Agenda.

The final programme for the event is coming soon.
