European Cities From the Bottom-Up – New Responses From Civil Society and Local Administration
-
Organiser: Advocate Europe & Actors of Urban Change
Civil society actors and local administration share the goal of wanting to improve the lives of the community. Yet, collaboration between these two groups often is disconnected. Today’s turbulent world requires that we act together, in new forms of alliances and more committed than before in order to drive future change. This session explores exemplary cases of collaboration and looks on the pain points of cross-sector collaborations as well as the places of potential. Four activists from across Europe share their insights and experiences from working in partnerships across sectorial boundaries.
