Gender Equal Cities – Expert Exchange



Gender Equal Cities – Expert Exchange, 17-19 October 2018, Vienna AT



URBACT has partnered with the commune of Umea (Sweden) and the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) to launch a new initiative, Gender Equal Cities, to highlight ways in which cities are driving change through gender-sensitive policy making.


As an integral part of URBACT’s Gender Equal Cities programme, this two day session aims to be a place for knowledge exchange, co-creation, coalition building and consciousness raising between experts interested in creating diverse, inclusive and sustainable cities for all.


The 20 invitees are working on different approaches to gender equality, in planning, mainstreaming, budgeting, representation, participation and beyond, in and for cities across different parts of the EU, in networks and ministries. We hope to co-create a space to and share with and inspire each other, across sectoral, thematic and geographical silos, to dig deeper into what’s working to cultivate more intersectional and equitable urban planning and sustain momentum.
