ALL PLACES MATTER
Territorial Agenda in Practice
29 September 2021, IZUM – Institute of Information Science, Prešernova ulica 17, Maribor, (live event)
What is the link between territorial development and quality of life? How is territorial cohesion included in the new cohesion policy? Join us in the discussion about these and other similar questions and get to know six inspiring cases that contribute to the implementation of the territorial agenda in practice.
Economic and social differences between regions and places as well as characteristics of the environment determine our way of life and affect the perception of quality of life. With good governance, stakeholders can change the characteristics of individual areas and thus contribute to improving the perceived quality of life.
Territorial Agenda 2030, adopted by ministers responsible for spatial planning, territorial development and territorial cohesion in December 2020, represents an agreement on common objectives and priorities in the field of territorial cohesion. It highlights the importance of increasing quality of life as an underlying objective of all public policies. Access to and quality of public services, freedom of movement, healthy, resilient, high-quality built environments, quality of air, soil and water, as well as nature, landscape and cultural heritage contribute to the territorial quality of life.
This conference strives to enrich the discussion on territorial quality of life and inspire integration of the territorial agenda into policy processes at different levels. In the first part, we will host distinguished guests to introduce the topic. The main part of the conference consists of six examples of good practice from European countries, regions and local communities who are already following the priorities of the new territorial agenda. The event will close with a discussion on the implementation of the new territorial agenda with a special focus on the quality of life. We are also very excited to take you on a site visit to exemplary cases in Maribor in the afternoon.
