I was curious to see what Twitter tells us about URBACT… here is the result of a first scroll through the past two weeks of discussions about URBACT! A nice outlook in its diversity and objectives.

  1. First of all, it is amazing to see that at the same time from Finland to the Czech Republic people are working on URBACT either introducing its finding in a high level conference…
  2. Off to #Finland on Monday to address their National Urban Forum on the issue of Jobs and what #Cities can do to create them. @URBACT
  3. @mikecampbell3 @URBACT #morejobsbettercities findings being presented to Finnish Urban Forum today – publication date June
  4. Or discussing and elaborating new concepts at the URBACT National Training Scheme in Brno…
  5. Talking about the circular process of the ULSG roadmap here in Brno #urbactNTS @URBACT
  6. What else? A bit of planning is going on in Italy and everyone is informed that the URBACT Summer University is coming up soon! It’ll be in Dublin at the end of August!
