The URBACT Network Interactive Cities addresses the opportunities of social media and digital platforms in urban governance and participation. As part of the network‘s Lisbon meeting bringing together 10 municipalities from across Europe, we will organise a public event with the participation of politicians from the participating cities. The session aims at discussing with local politicians the role of communication and its governance in urban processes. How do politicians use digital media? What are their challenges? How could they better cooperate with civil servants? How could they better engage with citizens?
