MILE, the pilot Urbact network focusing on managing migration at the local level (why wasn’t it called MILL?!) has finished its frenetic 20 months of activity with a closing meeting in Brussels on the 25th July.
Freiss worked with MILE on their first cycle reports on migrant entrepreneurship and also developed the action planning approach in collaboration with QEC ERAN.
The productivity of the network was demonstrated by the nine cities developing 25 action plans across the 3 themes – find out more here.
The meeting was followed by the second of the URBACT citylap open meetings at which MILE was joined by OECD, ECAS, Open cities, Eurocities and QEC ERAN for a deep discussion on what cities can do at their level to improve the situation for migrants and develop more cohesive communities.
Full reports of the meeting are available on urbact.eu.
