To be willing to live in a city, you need to understand it and fall in love with it, during the regeneration process our main goal is to make citizens re-love their cities.
Urban regeneration in the European Union is extremely important in context of founding effective solutions by implementing inclusion policies for disadvantaged sections of the cities. It is one of main trends in the actions of urban areas, which enables the social and investment development. Regeneration is not only the work of authorities; it demands also the involvement of the citizens and private entities. Strengthening local small and medium-sized companies and creating good quality jobs are other challenges which should be tackled with the help of EU measures.
How can local and regional authorities contribute to the changes of local dynamic, of investors’, entrepreneurs’ and inhabitants’ perceptions thanks to regeneration strategies? How can regeneration enhance the competiveness of cities and regions, making them places worth to live, to work and to invest?
