How can social media improve our urban governance? How to explain to your local stakeholders what you are doing within the Interactive Cities network? Tell them your story! The animation explains the ambition of the City of Murcia, who would like to use social media to involve local inhabitants in the urban regeneration processes of the city. Enjoy!
Eutropian joined the Radio Impegno (the community radio in Rome against the Mafia) issue on Markets in Rome with a podcast containing many of the interviews we did around Europe over the last years.

The final report of the We Make Europe! event held on 29th May in Amsterdam is available!

The event is part of the Funding the Cooperative City in Central Europe series that explores, promotes and assists experiments in organising and establishing new community spaces and services in Central European cities. By focusing on the region with emerging entrepreneurial skills and a maturing civil society, the project aims at positioning Central European initiatives in the wider European context and at acting as a platform for knowledge exchange. The Warsaw event brings together „city makers” and protagonists of the new social economy from various cities in order to help shaping a new Central European culture of urban development based on community-driven initiatives, civic economic models and cooperative ownership.
