​​​​​​​EUKN Urban Review April 2021: Experimental Cities

In an era of endless 'pilot projects' and so-called 'urban innovation', you would be forgiven for being a little sceptical about the capacity of experimental urban projects to bring about real systemic change.

The COVID-19 pandemic has, however, awakened our belief in such experiments, demonstrating the enduring value of experimentation in our cities.

In this newsletter, we explore the idea of 'experimental cities', looking at how small-scale urban experiments can potentially lead to wider system change.

Our new edition features:  

  • Experimental city news from the urban world
  • #13 and #14 Urban Voices articles: Birgit Georgi on... experimenting with Nature-Inclusive Quays (NIQs) in Breda and Johannes Riegler, Caroline Wrangsten and Jonas Bylund on... why experimental methods drive urban transitions
  • Information about the EUKN Policy Lab for Spain
  • Upcoming EUKN events
  • Top Lockdown Lectura reads on the experimental city
