Co-learning: five best practices from EUROCITIES' members

The first-ever Social Innovation Lab of EUROCITIES took place on 25-27 March 2019 in Glasgow. Over 120 city politicians, officers and change makers (social enterprises and foundations) from over 50 cities in Europe joined forces to pilot a new way of working for ‘Making Inclusive Cities through Social Innovation’.

In the first part of the Social Innovation Lab, city delegates learned from recent pilots of social innovations in cities - mostly city-led projects supported as Urban Innovation Actions.
