As a network we co-created 14 Metropolitan Field Trips to 16 European cities and three conferences, leading up to the City Makers Agenda. During the Dutch Presidency of the EU in 2016 we came together with over 600 City Makers of 150 cities at the City Makers Summit in Amsterdam to conclude on the City Makers Agenda, and presented it as input to the Urban Agenda for the EU.

Circular economy strategies for cities and regions is crucial if we want a coordinated and effective approach to the circular economy transition in Europe. That is why the Urban Agenda for the EU dedicated a partnership to address the circular economy for European cities. The session presented the Action plan of the Urban Agenda Partnership on Circular Economy. The Urban Agenda platform has worked well in the way that it has enabled a multi-level approach to the topic and allows partners to also take their circular ambitions further within their own cities.

Today, the basis of urban growth lies more in the hands of those who consume and therefore organize their social potential. As the consumption city is not simply one new industry that comes next, the mixture of different life styles is the necessary matrix for revitalization of urban life. Difference and diversity are challenging manifold the management of this transition, wherefore no blue print for the urban regeneration can be produced.

Book Description: The ongoing crisis in Europe has dramatic impact on the life in many Southern European cities: Unemployment, social deprivation, poverty, political instability, severe cuts in the welfare state budgets and a wide spread feeling of despair have eroded much of the social foundation of the cities. This chapter aims at analysing the impacts of the European crisis and its main responses in Portuguese city-regions; and to examine the correspondent development of spatial planning instruments and public policies for urban development. There are proposed several insights to an already widely open discussion.

The issue of regionalization has become a crucial point in the process of European Unification. The region has attracted a wider audience, but the term remains attached to a variety of different definitions linked to spatial, historical, social, political and cultural discourses. The macro trends of globalization, the debate on political steering and the sociological perspective on the regionalization of life worlds however fit together. In this book, some links between the different understandings of the region are presented with empirical and theoretical international examples.
