The European Week of Regions and Cities, organised by the European Commission and the European Committee of the Regions, is the biggest annual event dedicated to cohesion policy. It has grown to become a unique communication and networking platform, bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe, including politicians, administrators, experts and academics.
The 20th edition is going to provide the opportunity to debate, keep communities connected and exchange best practices and ideas between partners and participants on four themes:
- green transition
- territorial cohesion
- digital transition
- youth empowerment.
The URBANITE project will take part in the Workshop “Data-driven cities: digital technologies for inclusive and sustainable decision-making processes” on 11th October organised by the European Commission - DG CNECT Technologies for Smart Communities Unit in cooperation with URBANAGE and URBANITE.
New technologies such as Digital Twins and AI can help participatory urban planning by facilitating the engagement around policy and service impact prediction, turning citizens from passive recipients of policy to active agents of city change disrupting the current urban planning status quo to create sustainable urban experiences that benefit all.
Thanks to the innovative tools and practices from the URBANITE and URBANAGE projects, citizens, urban planners and policy-makers can build smarter cities that are healthier and happier.
This workshop shares real examples of inclusive design practices and digital tools adopted by different cities/regions (e.g., Santander, Flanders and Messina) to help other cities implement their own digital twins and decision-making tools.
