Living Spaces is a peer-learning programme designed for local and regional authorities to learn how to plan and implement high-quality architectural policies and projects. From July 2023 to November 2024, the programme will facilitate exchanges among the EU’s cities, regions, Member States and relevant stakeholders on processes and good practices. Funded by the creative Europe programme of the European Union, Living Spaces is implemented by Eurocities and the Architects’ Council of Europe.
Join the Living Space peer-learning visits in 2024
12 peer-learning visits will be organised in 2024 to learn more about some of the examples from the new "Cities and regions driving high-quality architecture” catalogue to foster exchanges and European networking. The focus of the peer learning visits will be on architecture and the built environment, departing from the city or region's good practice in the catalogue.
Why should you participate?
The peer-learning visits are an opportunity to see first-hand how other cities and regions have implemented policies and projects contributing to a high-quality living environment for everyone. The visits are a unique opportunity for personal and professional growth. Participants will gain valuable experience in architecture and the built environment and will enhance their knowledge and skills. The visits will offer networking opportunities and will connect peers, experts and relevant stakeholders from different background and cities/regions. The project covers travel, accommodation and meals during the visit.
