"Through collaborative urban design and planning, Re-Value makes the urban transition to climate neutrality irresistible"
Inspired by the New European Bauhaus’ aesthetic approach to sustainability and undertaken to support the EU Mission for Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities, we take a holistic approach to urban development considering not only the physical infrastructure but also the well-being of communities while laying a path towards achieving climate neutrality in urban areas.
The Re-Value partnership consists of nine European waterfront cities and selected European organisations that seeks to make the urban transition irresistible for their local folks and professional stakeholders. They will demonstrate how climate neutrality and urban quality can be aligned, by re-valuing the cities’ connection to their waterfronts, strengthening co-benefits and mitigating potential adverse impacts.
Ålesund (Norway), Bruges (Belgium), Burgas (Bulgaria), and Rimini (Italy) will demonstrate full-scale how integrated urban planning and design can be optimally deployed to achieve climate neutrality and significantly reduce GHG emissions by 2030.
Cascais (Portugal), Constanța (Romania), İzmir (Turkey), Písek (Czechia), and Rijeka (Croatia) will learn, replicate and develop their own participatory story-building, data-driven scenarios and financial and partnership models on integrated urban planning and design to accelerate their journeys to climate neutrality.
Meet the partners.
The Re-Value partnership is made up of nine cities and sixteen other organisations from around Europe. Learn more about each, and their role in Re-Value, here.
