Urban Regeneration: European Network of towns

- to create spaces of discussion and mutual learning among citizens from different socio-cultural backgrounds and from different countries of Europe;

- to foster active citizenship and co-creation of policies and services in local societies, particularly for citizens who are often excluded from the decision-making processes;

- to enhance the capacity of local institutions to be "multipliers" in their own communities in order to engage a wide range of stakeholders.

In today's Europe we are reaching alarming levels of urban fragmentation, inequality and structural socio-spatial divisions within our cities, feeding extremism and radicalisation. Most vulnerable people are often bound to concentrate in disadvantaged areas where social exclusion and deprivation usually overlap with multi-ethnicity, which further challenges social cohesion. Increasingly marginalized and stigmatised, these areas and their inhabitants are pushed into a vicious circle of poverty. In this context, and through a bottom-up approach to raise local awareness on the urgent need to establish new connections among inhabitants of marginalized neighbourhoods and those of central areas, URGENT aims at tackling the growing fear of immigration, which feeds euroscepticist attitudes.

In Italy, URGENT works in Rome in the Esquilino district, with SPES, Polo Intermundia I - Intercultural Center for adults and kids, co-managed by the Municipality I Centre of Rome Capital City in collaboration with the School I.C. Manin and the Parents' Association of Di Donato School.
