EUKN Policy Lab in Utrecht: One year after the Pact of Amsterdam

On 4 July 2017, the EUKN organised a Policy Lab for its member the Netherlands about the first results of the Pact of Amsterdam, one year after its adoption.

During the Dutch Council Presidency in 2016, the Pact of Amsterdam was adopted, introducing the Urban Agenda for the EU. The underlying idea was to foster a multi-level and multi-stakeholder approach to urban policy-making in the EU in response to contemporary urban challenges.

The EUKN Policy Lab held on 4 July in Utrecht took stock of the developments of the first year after the adoption of the Pact of Amsterdam. The objective of the Policy Lab was to highlight the first results of the Pact of Amsterdam while discussing the Netherlands’ strategy to leverage the Urban Agenda for the EU so as to further promote the position of cities in EU policy-making.
