During this 3-day meeting we aim to broaden our horizons by digging deeper into the usefulness of collectives in supporting sustainable urban development and their ability to contribute to city performance and broader societal, spatial and economic goals. Furthermore, we will discuss our policy recommendations related to: access to funding , monitoring, role of intermediaries, and the right to challenge with our partners and stakeholders. 

As ABCitiEs consortium, we believe that strong neighborhood collectives can play a key role in managing and coordinating large scale neighborhood projects in the field of energy transition or circular economy. During the meeting we also hope to further explore and discuss these opportunities.
