URBACT enables cities to work together to develop new and sustainable solutions to major urban challenges, through networking, sharing knowledge, and building capacities for practitioners. URBACT is a European Territorial Cooperation program fostering sustainable integrated urban development in cities across Europe. It is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and EU Member and Partner States since 2002. By sharing knowledge and successes, like URBACT 's Good Practices, the programme contributes to faster and better progress in cities and to driving change towards sustainable urban living. URBACT’s Good Practices are tested approaches to common urban challenges that deserve to be shared so that a greater number of cities can adopt them. All Good Practices uphold URBACT’s key values: an integrated approach (economic, social, environmental) and a strong local participation. An Assessment Panel reviewed and selected applications from cities and other public authorities in all EU Member States, plus Norway and Switzerland, according to URBACT’s criteria.
