URBAN EMPATHY
Capitalizing for Urban Sustainability

The main objective of the Platform is the promotion of a sustainable urban model that is based on the classical Mediterranean city, whose main characteristics are: sufficient levels of population density, building compactness, complexity of land uses and activities and the proximity to basic services at a pedestrian scale. The working methodology, which considers these aspects as drivers of territorial and social cohesion, is focused on transnational cooperation across three different levels; Political (Mayors‘ Forum), Scientific (Technical Committee) and Participative (Citizens & Key Actors in Metropolitan Groups).

MED Capitalisation Projects' Final Event.

On 24th and 25th March 2015 the event 'The MED Capitalization: contributing to a stronger Europe' took place at the Committee of the Regions in a joint initiative by the thirteen MED capitalisation projects.

These projects were carried out in the final phase of the MED Programme and constitute in itself a pioneer initiative in the framework of the European Territorial Cooperation. In a short set of themes, they brought together outputs and results developed by previous projects with the purpose of delivering recommendations and new tools that synthetize and improve the productions of the 2007-2013 period.

SUMO Toolkit. The Ultimate Urban Integrated Method.

The SUMO Toolkit is an instrument that prepares current and future results to be transferred in a practical way and according to decision maker’s needs. Starting from a Results Information Form, the results are first categorized.

Then, considering a set of transferability criteria, results are evaluated by the Scientific Committee (experts from different disciplines and nationalities under a transnational common strategy). After analysing possible deviations among the evaluations, decision maker’s needs and the coherence with the Sustainable Urban Model of reference, the last and definitive round is completed.
