​​​​​​​EUKN Urban Review December 2020: The New Leipzig Charter Edition

As a result of a co-creative process that started in 2018, the New Leipzig Charter was endorsed during the informal meeting of the Ministers responsible for urban matters on 30 November 2020. 

The Charter represents a major milestone to achieve more integrated urban development in Europe, strongly emphasising the transformative power of cities for the common good. It aims to provide a framework for local and regional authorities, Member States  and  EU-level  authorities to  foster  more  resilient and sustainable cities and urban areas. 

The EUKN Secretariat is delighted to have contributed to the process via our support to the 2020 German Presidency of the EU Council.

This month's EUKN Urban Review is a special edition dedicated to the New Leipzig Charter.
