InclusiveCity aims at rethinking placemaking and the 15-minute city concept through the lens of social inclusion, diversity and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Building on the results of the JPI Urban Europe project PlaceCity and using an integrated approach that takes into account the aspects of social, economic and environmental impact, the project will develop a set of tools, methods and policies to support the multi-generational and gender-inclusive use of public spaces and granting access to natural assets (urban waterfronts), while protecting vulnerable groups and activities from the adverse effects, for example gentrification, touristification, commercialisation of public space renewal and design.

In order to support the toolbox development and test methods with concrete field experiences, five pilot projects (Urban Living Labs) will be established in five European cities: Budapest, Oslo, Rome, Rotterdam and Vienna. These pilots, established with the involvement of local stakeholders, communities and specific target groups, will address various SDGs corresponding to local challenges. Based on the approach of critical placemaking and local development, the pilots will be connected by a shared methodological framework informed by the tools and methods developed by the partnership, thus creating a circular research & innovation logic that connects research, policy design and toolbox development with Urban Living Labs.

Our role as Placemaking Europe enables us to translate on-site learnings into universal resources. We believe that the diverse challenges and cities participating in the project will yield valuable insights. As an international network, we recognize the immense value in sharing these learnings. By collaborating closely with local stakeholders and communities in our pilot projects, we aim to distil practical knowledge that can be applied across different urban contexts. These insights will contribute to the development of a robust toolbox of methods and strategies for inclusive placemaking. Moreover, our role as a leading network for Placemaking within Europe enables us to disseminate these resources widely, fostering exchange and collaboration among cities. We envision a future where cities worldwide can draw upon the collective wisdom generated by InclusiveCity to create more inclusive, vibrant, and sustainable urban spaces.
