The URBACT City Festival 2018 will celebrate the rising influence of cities as leading actors of change, throughout this 2-day event. 

We will share stories of urban renewal rooted in URBACT exchange and testimonies to the increasing power of cities to drive change. Cities are hotbeds of innovation, creating local solutions to the global challenges of sustainability, integration and resilience that can lead to the successful achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The rate of progress is accelerated when cities work together. In URBACT, cities show that they are striving to be better, are open to learn from each other and are ready to influence national and international policy with concrete practices from the ground up.
