URGENT international conference in Mostar
Reconstructing bridges within European cities: civic participation against socio-spatial stigmatisation and boundaries
The third international event organized in the framework of the Project “URGENT – Urban Regeneration: European Network of Towns” will be held in Mostar (Bosnia Herzegovina) on 28-29 November 2017.
During the public conference it will be debated the roles of i) local authorities in time of crisis: the link between socio-spatial stigmatisation, social exclusion, and Euro scepticism; ii) of community based organisation in building intercultural dialogue and fostering social inclusion: reconstructing bridges.
During closed doors session, the 10 delegations from partner cities will discuss about the pilot projects ideas developed at local level during past months. Pilot projects will be adjusted according to guidelines developed during the 2nd international event. Each partner presents the local path experience in thematic focus groups on:
- the effect of the local welfare constraints on social cohesion in cities
- the link between social exclusion and euroscepticism
- the effect of community based activities in building intercultural dialogue.
