Description of the strand:

Open call for interventions in the public space and more specifically for the in-between space within buildings, blocks of flats and residences, which are dispersed all over the residential areas.

Aims of the strand:

• To create a framework to upgrade neighbourhoods’ public spaces and to regain their social feature through collaborative procedures.
• To encourage local teams to plan interventions that will meet the needs and the potential of their area.
• To revive deprived neighbourhoods, urban voids and abandoned areas which suffer from lack of security have lost their attractiveness over time.
• To encourage citizens to «adopt» parts of the public space.
• To amplify socialisation not only by collaborative procedures but also by the active use of the area.
• To activate human capital, local skills, and creativity.

The strand support interventions such as:

Innovative street furniture
