Living-in.EU Subgroups - Workplans priorities 2023
The Living-in.EU movement believes that strong cooperation through multi-level governance in the EU and co-creation with citizens can turn cities and communities across the EU into smart and sustainable places where people enjoy living and working.
To support its commitments, the Living-in.EU welcomes its signatories to join the five subgroups: legal, financial, technical, education, and capacity building; monitoring and measuring. Each subgroup commits to the extensive update and scaling up of digital solutions through an annual work plan designed in cooperation with its members.
