SDG 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Creating inclusive, safe and sustainable cities requires good local governance and democratic institutions supporting it. Citizen participation mechanisms must be created, involving all groups of local residents: dialogue is a crucial tool to avoid social fragmentation, promote a culture of living together and build harmonious relationships within the city and the society overall.
In relation with the SDG, the Congress has adopted the following texts :
- RES452 (2019) - Revised Code of Good Practice for Civil Participation in the Decision-making Process
- REC406 (2017) - A better future for Europe’s rural areas
- REC392 (2016) and RES407 (2016) - Good governance in metropolitan areas
- RES385 (2015) - Fostering active citizenship by building partnerships with civil society
- RES384 (2015) - Guidelines for local and regional authorities on preventing radicalisation and manifestations of hate at the grassroots level
- RES339 (2012) - Making cities resilient
- REC253 (2008) and RES271 (2008) - The social reintegration of children living and working on the streets
- REC251 (2008) and RES269 (2008) - European Urban Charter II - Manifesto for a new urbanity
- REC241 (2008) and RES258 (2008) - Child in the city
- REC232 (2008) and RES249 (2008) - Biodiversity policies for urban areas
To support local public administrations in leading in a more informed manner, addressing the needs of their communities, and developing demand-driven and responsive policies, the Congress has developed the “Management of Change: Tool Guide for Local and Regional Authorities”.
