On 25 January, the CREATE project organised a reception dedicated to the theme of ’Strong urban governance for liveable cities‘.

The event in Brussels was attended by 40 participants, including a representative of the European Commission‘s DG MOVE.
Peter Jones from University College London and Charlotte Halpern from the Centre d’Etudes Européennes de Sciences Po discussed the results of the CREATE project’s mid-term review. 
The speakers brought the issue of indicators for measuring a city’s livability to the audience’s attention and explained the potential offered by new urban governance models. Following the presentations, a Q&A session gave the public and the speakers a chance to engage in a productive exchange of ideas. The interventions focused on ways to tackle traffic congestions, and improve transport efficiency.
