The 2016 RegioStars Awards winner in Category 4 “CityStar”, is the Revitalization of Lower Town District in Gdansk (Pomorskie Voivodeship, Poland - European Regional Development Fund)

The revitalisation of the Lower Town district, a historical district of the city of Gdansk included investments in infrastructure and social fabric as well as social and cultural activities to tackle the specific problems in this area.

All operations were aimed at fighting against social exclusion, with some activities focusing more particularly on children and young people from disadvantaged families, and others directly at their parents.

In order to meet their needs, local citizens were involved from an early stage, and a multilevel partnership was created by the City of Gdansk with local organisations such as the Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art, which intensified its cultural work combined with social activities to encourage active participation from the residents.

Through the project, 33 facilities underwent revitalisation efforts, and a total area of 22 564m² was renovated. There were 210 social inclusion programmes in which 9463 people participated and 5 new jobs were created at the city's children day care centre.
