Brussels: The Urban Platform
On November 19-21, 2010 we would like to invite you to another event organized by the Social Polis Inner Circle Stakeholder Citymine(d) and organizations from 13 other European cities.
This Urban Platform will take place from Friday, November 19 evening until Sunday, November 21 in Brussels and Social Polis is cooperating with Citymine(d) in organizing and promoting this event. It will give even more space for creating ideas and building partnerships for future collaboration and offer you interesting insights on local activities in European cities.
On the Urban Platform, individuals and organisations from 13 cities, from Gothenburg to Istanbul and from London to Sarajevo, present activities by which they shape their cities. It is an occasion for meeting among local and international initiators, with the wider public, elected politicians, civil servants, urban planners, researchers and entrepreneurs to exchange knowledge and experience, and to strengthen local initiatives by showing international affinities.
Although these initiatives are often explicitly local, we can find them in almost every metropolis. The Urban Platform brings initiatives who normally act very locally to Brussels, to discover what they have in common, even make future plans, but most importantly send a common European signal about the importance of public spaces in our cities.
