Sustainable & Resilient Urban-Rural Partnerships – Conference URP2020

The URP2020 conference aims at developing new urban-rural imaginaries, integrating strategies and projects that explore present and future potentials in terms of sustainability and resilience. The conference brings together and connects recent scientific insights and enlightening experiences of on-going projects in practice. It stimulates learning on various levels, i.e. from the local level via entire regions to the broader European understanding of integrated urban-rural development.

The URP2020 conference “Sustainable and Resilient Urban-Rural Partnerships” draws specific attention to closing the gap between available scientific knowledge on the one hand and decision making in practice on the other. The conference offers a forum for exchange and support the co-design of ideas to tackle challenges like “supporting equity in living conditions while accepting local particularities”,  “establishing multi-level, multi-actor and multi-sectoral regional governance approaches”, or “improving integrated land-use management, social and technological infrastructures and mobility services” etc. .
