Building on the success of our inaugural URBACT Summer University in Krakow in 2011, URBACT is organising its 2nd Summer University dedicated to URBACT Local Support Group members from all ongoing URBACT networks. The event will take place in Dublin, Ireland, from Wednesday 28 August to Saturday 31 August 2013.
Summer University is a very special learning and networking experience dedicated to the URBACT partners of all ongoing networks. This 43-day summer school aims to provide a unique opportunity for urban practitioners, policy-makers, decision-makers, to develop their skills and to collaborate with peers across Europe.
We are very excited about this year’s programme. The core of this will focus on equipping participants with the key skills needed to deliver successful integrated urban policies, building on a strong participative process, strengthening evidence base, involving unusual suspects and generating creative solutions for effective action plans. And much more!
The programme is built on highly interactive sessions, with lots of working in small groups on hands on exercises. In addition there will be a series of stimulating inputs from international experts and practitioners in a wide range of topical areas (through URBACT talks and Master Classes).
