The Network The Profile of the City – Basic indicators of Quality of Life, constituted by 14 medium-sized Catalan cities and coordinated by Terrassa, has been recognized with the European label URBACT Good Practices between a set of 97 examples of good practices and chosen from among 270 proposals presented by 219 cities in 29 countries.
The initiative consists in the design and application of a methodology to measure the quality of life and sustainability of European medium-sized cities. It is based on the creation of a network of observatories connected internationally to European partners that work in the development and application of tools, methodologies and indicators to measure the quality of life and welfare of the cities and their citizens.
Next October, the selected projects will be able to participate in a meeting in Tallinn (Estonia), where they will have the opportunity to share their examples of good practices with other European cities.
The fact of having achieved the recognition of the European label URBACT Good Practices will allow the network and especially Terrassa (being chosen is a necessary condition) to have the possibility of being able to submit to future calls for proposals of URBACT, exchange and learning for the promotion of sustainable urban development that allows cities to work together in the search for solutions for the great urban and social challenges.
The candidature has been managed by the International Relations Service of Terrassa City Council.
