6 June 2015 – Urbact markets handbook

The EU Urbact Markets Handbook – Urban Markets: the heart, soul and motor of cities –  is available here

The handbook uses the different experience of  9 participant cities in: Attica (GR), Barcelona (ES), Dublin (IE), London (UK), Pecs (HU), Suceava (RO), Toulouse (FR), Torino (IT) & Wroclaw (PL), to explore the role of city markets as key drivers for economic development and job creation, social cohesion, sustainable living and urban regeneration.

It’s well worth a look – with lively presentation, including more than 30 case studies about Europe’s urban markets and what makes them successful.
