As the EU Urban Agenda brings Europe’s cities to the negotiation table in a bid to overcome urban challenges, we undertake a twofold exercise. In a new cooperation model, Member States, cities and the EU work together to deliver better results on EU level for cities in a very practical and concrete way. The added value could be a new governance model which brings all these levels closer together in order to make the EU and its citi(ze)ns true partners on equal level.
The initiative "A soul for Europe" was so kind to translate and publish my recent article on the EU Urban Agenda in the Austrian "Wiener Zeitung" now - Thanks! - which allows me to share it with more urban minded friends and colleagues in English.
