Commissioner fo Regional Policy Johannes Hahn inaugurated yesterday evening the "100 EUrbansolutions for better cities" outdoor exhibition taking place at Place Jean Rey, Etterbeek, Brussels (on Rue Belliard, opposite Parc Léopold) until 31 October. This exhibition promotes dozens of innovative EU co-financed projects in the towns and cities of the EU.

Towns have a crucial role to play in lifting Europe out of the crisis. However, as well as these positive attributes, they are also the places where unemployment, segregation and poverty are concentrated. Towns have to face various challenges, from providing adequate housing to mobility and environmental issues. The European Union (EU) supports projects that help to improve the living conditions in towns.
