Urban Transformation

CitizensLab focuses on the improvement of urban environments. We engage in urban transformation processes and civic rights, such as the right to participate, the right to housing or the right to public space and collective (common) spaces. Any actions taken to contribute to the upgrade of everyday life in European cities should take into consideration basic human rights such as inclusion as well as free and creative access to public spaces.
