Rethinking, transforming and integrating mobility infrastructures.
The Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) leads the RiConnect project, an URBACT programme Action Planning Network co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The URBACT Action Planning Networks are aimed at helping Europe's cities and metropolises to find solutions to their common urban challenges through the improvement of local policies and capacities in order to design integrated action plans for sustainable urban development.
RiConnect is a network of 8 metropolises led by the AMB with the purpose of rethinking, transforming and integrating mobility infrastructures to reconnect people, neighbourhoods, cities and natural areas. We will develop urban strategies and planning processes, instruments and partnerships to foster public transport and active mobility, reduce externalities and social segregation and unblock opportunities for urban regeneration. Our long-term vision is a more sustainable, equitable and attractive metropolis for all.
The Action Planning Network is being developed in two phases:
- PHASE 1: 6 months (currently underway) 2 September 2019 – 2 March 2020.
- PHASE 2: 24 months (subject to approval of application) May 2020 – May 2022.
