urban agenda

European Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn has launched a public consultation on "The urban dimension of EU policies – key features of an EU Urban Agenda". Europe continues to be faced with challenges related to the economy, the climate, the environment, and society at large. Most of these challenges have a strong urban dimension. A growing number of voices argue that cities need to be adequately involved in the conception and implementation of EU policies, and that EU policies need to be better adapted to the urban realities where they will be implemented.
