COMPENDIUM – Compendium of Tools for Socially Integrative Cities

The COMPENDIUM is an online instrument where interested parties from practice and academia can find a collection of tools and measures, which are apt and have proven to contribute to strengthening and accelerating the transition towards socially integrative cities in Europe and/or China. The described tools and measures play a role in the different deliverables of the project, and information that is more detailed can be found under the respective project results of this website. The COMPENDIUM may serve as an overview and inspiration for making urban development more sustainable.  

The TRANS-URBAN-EU-CHINA partners, while analysing good practice examples in Europe and China, have identified tools and measures for strengthening and accelerating the transition towards socially integrative cities in Europe and/or China. The short articles, which describe them, follow an identical structure: First, the authors, mentioned at the end of each contribution, summarise the purpose of the respective instrument. Afterwards, they depict its relevance and impact, including a description of whether and how the instrument was tested, as well as its strengths and weaknesses. Finally, they refer to good practice examples from Europe and/or China. References complete each description. If possible, additional visual material is provided. Moreover, the authors mention links where additional material regarding good practice examples can be found.
