Are you working on the fringe?
Register today for the Final Conference
Many European cities face the challenge of renewing their fringes. Our loyal readers know that this area between the inner city and the suburbs holds the promise of combining the best of both worlds. Close to the vibrant city centre yet still offering space and greenery. The fringes are in need of renewal however and this demands a new approach to urban planning.
For the past 2,5 years the sub>urban partner cities - Antwerp, Baia Mare, Barcelona Metropolitan Area, Brno, Casoria, Düsseldorf, Vienna, Oslo and Solin - have worked out their strategies for urban redevelopment, new planning instruments, methods for stakeholder involvement and a change of governance for local authorities for the fringe.
It's time to present you our results, so discover our programme and register today!
