The second meeting of the EURE project took place in Brest on 19-20 November 2019, hosted by Atlantic Cities, the project's coordinator. Project partners and a pool of selected experts gathered to work on one of the first outcomes of EURE: a joint report detailing how the funds allocated by art.7 of the European Regional Development Funds Regulation are used on partners’ territories. This catalogue of policies, actions, good practices, and recommendations will be fed by regional reports describing the state of play of the urban environmental policy instruments in each territory covered by EURE. In addition to defining a common structure for the regional reports, participants of the meeting highlighted urban issues to be tackled by the project. They cover waste and water management, sustainable mobility, cooperation between local authorities within the same regions and social issues.
After two days of the meeting, participants concluded that small and low populated cities have a central role to play at the European level to solve the new urban challenges requiring the investigation of innovative strategies of sustainable development. For that, collaboration is fundamental, not only to improve local urban policies but also to get the attention low populated urban areas to deserve from European bodies when it comes to environmental management and improved resource efficiency.
