Conference “Old European cities as a key for sustainability” – 10 January 2013
URBAN Intergroup hosted the final conference of the URBACT network “LINKS- Old European cities as a key for sustainability” on the 10th of January 2013 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
How can the challenges concerning the environment and heritage building protection be reconciled to offer a majority of people sustainable and attractive housing at the very heart of the city? This is the main question that the Network of European Historic cities of the LINKS Project have tried to answer within the URBACT Programme. During the seminar LINKS presented findings and policy recommendations on how historical city centres are tomorrow’s eco-districts.
