Tuesday 29th September
Generating & Co-creating ideas

e-Manager leading this session: Eileen Crowley

Once a problem is identified and common objectives are agreed upon, the next step is to design solutions. In order to get the most out of the collective intelligence of a group of stakeholders, facilitation is key! This session will focus on how to build effective and efficient group collaboration, creating a safe space for the involved people to think outside of the box and find a consensus about the actions that should be taken.

Thursday 1st October
Planning Actions #2

e-Manager leading this session: Ian Graham

What is an action exactly? Does the action answer the objectives and vision previously defined? How to make sure it can become a reality? Following up the Planning Actions #1 session, this very hands-on session will help participants to practice designing actions and provide tools to develop a coherent and meaningful set of actions

The UeU will consist of a series of 8 sessions, following a logical sequence, along the stages of an action-planning process. It will be designed to:

  • help partners get to work with their URBACT Local Groups (ULG)
  • to present participants with a set of skills that will be useful for the development of the Integrated Action Plans.
Specifically, the UeU will cover tools for partners to use at local level during the Activation and Action Planning Phase of the APN journey. The current context of reduced physical contact will also be taken into consideration.



The UeU will take place weekly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and will be delivered in English.
Each session will last 2 hours, from 10.00 to noon (CET), and it will provide tools about one stage of this process. Each session will include:

  • theoretical input on the topic
  • practical tool testing and exchange within a small group



This event is exclusively designed for people who are involved in the ULGs from on-going APNs and, therefore, who are actively involved in the drafting of the Integration Action Plan.

  • Three people from each partner city can attend this event
  • at least one person, preferably the ULG coordinator, should take part in all sessions, to get a complete understanding of the action-planning process.
As a participant you will be part of a group with people from other cities and networks. This group will remain the same over the whole 4 week period. So an active engagement during and in between sessions - as well as a good level of English - is required.
