Local Environment Management and Analysis

VALUE ADDED

Project description

Even if it is now welcomed by most of the EU cities, public involvement in decision-making and planning is still a challenge. The major problems facing Europe can indeed not be addressed using entirely local bottom-up approaches. This also requires strategic, coordinated responses. VALUE+ will demonstrate how cities can best integrate bottom-up and top-down approaches, but also how to build on community participation to generate local growth, innovation and resilience strategies. The City of Liege is the operational partner associated to ULg for this action-research project.
