Co-creating people-centric sustainable neighborhoods through urban regeneration (WeGenerate)

 

With the title “Co-creating people-centric sustainable neighborhoods through urban regeneration (WeGenerate) and coordinated by the Fraunhofer Society for the Development of Applied Research EV seeks to infuse the elements of people and co-creation in the urban regeneration processes. In a highly participatory process, cities, citizens, communities, businesses, researchers, and practitioners – take ownership of the urban regeneration processes and create together sustainable, people-centric, accessible, and beautiful neighborhoods. This project is based on the stories of four neighborhoods and their communities in different parts of Europe, in different stages of development and facing different urban challenges but sharing the same vision of positive change. WeGenerate will help them to reinvent themselves and in the process find new values and opportunities. Advanced digital will be implemented and experimented to support decision-making and stimulate citizen engagement. Expertise in Social Science and Humanities is called upon to foster social innovation and participatory actions across the project. In addition, the art and cultural dimensions will be drawn on in the co-creation processes. Four sustainable and people-centric neighborhoods will be realized by the end of the project, and the legacy will be upheld through replication by our FellowCities and others, who are inspired by the WeGeneration stories.
