Urban Agenda Partnership Security in Public Spaces Action Plan
The Urban Agenda for the EU was launched in May 2016 with the Pact of Amsterdam. It represents a new multi-level working method promoting cooperation between Member States, cities, the European Commission and other stakeholders in order to stimulate growth, liveability and innovation in the cities of Europe and to identify and successfully tackle social challenges.
According to the Pact of Amsterdam, Partnerships are the key delivery mechanisms within the Urban Agenda for the EU. Each Partnership is made up of Urban Authorities (cities), the European Commission, EU organisations (European Investment Bank, European Economic and Social Committee, Committee of Regions), Member States, Partner States, experts, umbrella organisations (e.g. EUROCITIES, Council of European Municipalities and Regions), knowledge organisations (e.g. URBACT, ESPON) and stakeholders (NGOs, business, etc.).
The Partnership on Security in Public Spaces is announcing the publication of its Action Plan after almost two years of work.
The Action Plan aims at providing directions on how to face global and local challenges of our times to create safer cities and public spaces and to bring real European added value. The Actions are driven by technology for smart, sustainable, and safe cities and managing security and sharing public spaces in urban and peri-urban areas.
