We believe people can join forces and combine their passions, talents and resources to tackle the problems their cities face.
In an era of complex urban challenges, we are convinced that collective, lasting change can only happen if people with diverging ideas, experiences and perspectives work together: skilled, committed actors who are working toward a common purpose.
We empower urban changemakers to work collaboratively in innovative ways for more sustainable, inclusive and just cities. We do this by connecting and training actors from nonprofits, private enterprises and public institutions, then bringing them into a peer network where they can exchange, inspire and learn from each other.
Actors of Urban Change work in cities and towns all over Europe. We help them kickstart and shape local projects so they can become models for social innovation within their cities and throughout the continent.
The Actors of Urban Change program is currently in its third round, which runs from Fall 2017 to Summer 2019. So far, more than 90 Actors from 30 European cities and 23 countries have joined our network.
