The opening event of the fifth edition of Many Possible Cities will present European, national and regional good practices of policies and cases for just and inclusive urban regeneration. 

How can temporary uses be used to prototype portfolios of long-term strategic actions, useful to accompany the transitions that drive our time, so as not to exclude population groups and reduce, rather than increase, economic, social and digital inequalities? 

We will address the following issues: 

  • Policies and regulations governing temporary uses
  • Urban agencies for the reuse of abandoned or disused spaces
  • Financial instruments to support the adoption of temporary uses in urban regeneration
  • Opportunities offered by the re-use of spaces in Social Housing and Reception
  • Synergies between ESF and ERDF funding for temporary management of buildings within urban regeneration pathways

The European Federation for Living will be present at the conference
