URBAL - European Union project

The objective of the European Union Urb-Al project is to develop networks of non centralised cooperation between local groups on specific topics and problems concerning local urban development.

Launched in 1995, Urb-Al has brought together more than 680 local groups in projects that affect different topics such as drugs, the environment, the participation of citizens, the fight against poverty, transport
security, urban planning, economic development, the society of information or also democracy.

Urb-Al carries out a vital role in the strengthening of relations between the member States of the European Union and the countries of Latin America by favouring a direct exchange of experiences between councilors and territorial technicians from the two continents.
