VARCITIES 7th Progress Meeting

The ISOCARP Institute recently participated in the 7th progress meeting of VARCITIES, held in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. We joined representatives from the seven cities and 17 organizations to compose VARCITIES consortium to review the project’s progress and discuss the implementation of 29 innovative solutions across the 7 pilot sites. The meeting, which took place on March 7th and 8th, featured productive discussions on the co-implementation of Visionary Solutions in the pilot cities, with significant progress in the implementation of these solutions, particularly in Skellefteå (Sweden) and Novo Mesto (Slovenia), where solutions are now fully operational, offering direct health and well-being benefits to users.

Together with our partners, we had the opportunity to explore Novo Mesto’s Pilot site, the recreational area of Češča Vas, witnessing firsthand the successful development strategy of the municipality and the operational Visionary Solutions in the area, for a healthier, greener city.

Looking ahead, we anticipate continued collaboration for the last phase of the VARCITIES with the ramping up of co-evaluation and replication activities.
