    Review: Urban-Rural Assembly Multi-Actor Workshops 2024 

  • Urban-Rural Assembly (URA)

    Managing inclusive transformation-to-sustainability processes at the urban-rural interface of the Huangyan-Taizhou region in China.

    The Sino-German project 'Urban-Rural Assembly (URA)' focuses on the urbanising region of Huangyan-Taizhou in Zhejiang Province in China as a unique research and development environment aiming to: 1) build an inter-disciplinary and multi-scalar understanding of trans-local interdependencies and metabolisms at the urban-rural interface; 2) develop and implement community-driven pilot interventions enhancing resource efficiency and reinforcing regional circular economies; and 3) develop and demonstrate new multi-level, multi-actor governance tools that enable local municipalities to manage urban-rural linkages towards a progressive urban-regional model that builds on socio-ecologically inclusive and cooperative development approaches.
