The RiConnect project

The Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) is leading the RiConnect project, an Action Planning Network of the URBACT programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.

The URBACT Action Planning Networks aim to help Europe’s cities and metropolises find solutions to common urban challenges by improving local policies and capacities to design integrated action plans for sustainable urban development.

RiConnect is a network run by the AMB and the metropolises of Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam, Porto, Thessalonica, Cracow and Gdansk. Its aim is to redesign, transform and integrate mobility infrastructures in order to reconnect people, neighbourhoods, cities and natural spaces. We will develop planning strategies, processes, tools and collaborations to promote public transport and active mobility, reduce externalities and social segregation and unlock opportunities for urban regeneration. Our long-term vision is a more sustainable, equitable and attractive metropolis for all.
