The fast urbanisation process is one of the most transformative trends in the 21st century. It has massive effects on populations and economies, and on the environmental and humanitarian aspects of cities all over the world. Actively engaging EU citizens in urbanisation issues is particularly relevant, as the EU is a major player in setting the global urban development agenda.
“Build Solid Ground” increased European citizens’ support of global sustainable development through improved awareness and development education. The project engaged Europeans for the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG)s 11, to “Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”. It focused on equitable global housing, and other land and urban issues.
