Lessons from the European URBAN Programmes

8-9 July 2002 in London

Opened by Commissioner Michel Barnier on 8 July, this conference will bring together more than 500 key players from the European, national, regional and city levels, from cities' organisations and practitioners in the field of urban regeneration. They will debate the urban aspects of future cohesion policy, drawing on the lessons from the URBAN Community Initiative.

On the second day, innovative projects will be presented by several cities and Guy Crauser, Director-General for Regional Policy at the European Commission, will chair a debate on the added value of social integration, citizens' involvement and urban development.
