EDITORIAL
FULL SPEED TOWARDS NEW GROWTH
T
he territorial cooperation programme URBACT is running at full speed. Over the past year, thirty-fiveURBACT Thematic networks and Working Groups, involving over 280 partners, have been up andrunning, some starting their transnational exchange activities, others completing their projects anddelivering conclusions and Local Action Plans.The life of the URBACT community is rich and diverse just like life in the cities. Dozens of meetings of the LocalSupport Groups have enabled the cities to go further in their search for innovative solutions.At programme level, URBACT is pooling and consolidating ideas and results coming from the different networksand working groups. This capitalisation process is carried out mainly with the Lead partners and Lead expertswho support URBACT partners in implementing the projects’ work programmes and achieving expectedoutputs.This year again, we have asked the Lead Experts to write articles describing the work achieved by the Networksand the partners' approches to a wide range of challenges that the cities face today. They have the experienceand the necessary perspective to offer the decision-makers and practitioners concrete markers.The eleven articles selected for this Tribune reflect the divesity of the subjects tackled by the cities with theURBACT context: knowledge hotspots, inclusive growth, demand-led workforce, long-term care, plugging in togo green, new social deal, securing housing, cities of tomorrow, multifunctional regeneration…These articles are part of the search for a new inclusive growth that is smart and sustainable, the same termsas those used in the 2020 Strategy. It is obviously not by chance but the strength of the evidence, the pressureof local needs and the result of constant action by the URBACT programme in promoting integrated andsustainable urban development.
