Leipzig Charter for Public-Commons Cooperation in Europe
GeCo Living Lab:
“The approach taken by the new Charter:
- Stresses the idea of the “co-creation” of the city between citizens (local communities) and institutions;
- Highlights the strict connection between this idea of co-creation of the city and the production of welfare services;
- Upholds that this phenomenon is able to promote more inclusive and sustainable cities and highlights its important role with respect to many urban issues such as poverty, pollution, urban marginalization, housing etc.
- Recognizes how all this calls for an integrated methodology of public policy, which sees its cornerstone into local public bodies.”
