Regions are of critical importance to implement the UN 2030 Agenda including the Sustainable Development Goals, the HABITAT III objectives and the European Green Deal. By focusing on sustainable and resilient urban-rural partnerships, the international Urban Rural Partnerships (URP) 2020 conference aims at developing new urban-rural imaginaries, integrating strategies and projects that explore present and future potentials in terms of sustainability and resilience.

URP2020 contributes to the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter and the Territorial Agenda 2020 and is part of the events of Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union since July 2020.

URP2020 will bring together outstanding keynote speakers and connect scientific insights with enlightening experiences of on-going projects in practice. Join a stimulating conference that fosters learning on various levels, i.e, from the local level via entire regions to the broader European understanding of integrated urban-rural development. URP2020 offers a forum for exchange and supports the co-design of ideas to tackle the challenges for sustainable and resilient regional development.
