Knowledge transfer

One of the main goals of every International Agenda, also present in the Spanish Urban Agenda, is the exchange of knowledge, experiences and best practices that affect our towns and cities.

This section seeks to provide a platform for sharing and disseminating all those practices that, due to their characteristics and specifics, can contribute to achieving any of the goals of the strategic framework, while at the same time encouraging creativity and providing viable solutions for sustainable urban development.
