Welcome to the Summer University lab on the theme of open innovation for sustainability. Together we will learn and exchange experiences of participative action planning focussing on innovation. The main challenge will be to improve networks and activities that help to harness the ideas of citizens, businesses, students and entrepreneurs, to make Allium a greener, more resilient and more resource efficient place to live, work and visit.

Come prepared for some hard work and some fun, tackling the sustainability challenges of Allium together with urban professionals from URBACT cities across Europe.
