Rural-Urban Outlooks: Unlocking Synergies

2017 - 2021

The overall goal of ROBUST is to
a) advance our understanding of the interactions and dependencies between rural, peri-urban and urban areas and
b) to identify and promote policies, governance models and practices that foster mutually beneficial relations.

Improved governance arrangements and synergies between rural, peri-urban and urban areas will in turn contribute to Europe’s smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, maximising the creation of rural jobs and value-added.

ICLEI coordinates the work package on Outreach, communication and training. In that capacity the main tasks are:

  • Elaborate a comprehensive Outreach, Communication, and Dissemination Plan
  • Mobilize relevant communication and dissemination channels
  • Create Live Cases
  • Design online and offline Training Modules
  • Organize a European wide Conference
  • Organize two policy workshops in Brussels
  • Municipality of Ede
  • Tukums Municipality
  • Province of Lucca
