About the Public Feedback

The Urban Agenda for the EU is a multi-level and multi-stakeholder initiative that strives to involve cities and urban authorities to achieve Better Regulation, Better Funding and Better Knowledge for urban policy in Europe.

Each of the twelve existing Partnerships covers one of the priority themes identified in the Pact of Amsterdam and consists of around 15 to 20 partners representing EU Member States and Partner States, urban authorities, European institutions and organisations, and other stakeholders.

During their around three-year duration, all Partnerships formulate and implement an Action Plan. The actions are regarded as non-binding contributions to the design and revision of legislation, instruments and initiatives.

Once the draft Action Plan is available, a six-week Public Feedback takes place. Everyone is invited to provide comments on one or several of the draft actions via an online survey tool, which is accessible via the Futurium online platform.

The results of the online Public Feedback will be taken into consideration by the members of the Partnerships for the preparation of the final version of the Action Plan, which will be presented to the DG meeting on urban matters held once every EU presidency. 

Contributions are sought from individuals and national authorities, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organisations, social partners and civil society, academic institutions, financial institutions, international organisations, EU institutions and agencies, based in EU Member States or third countries.
