General Information

The DUT Partnership strongly commits to actively engage in a consultative manner with representatives of urban public administration for its activities. As problem-owners and experts for urban use cases, involving their experience, needs and requirements is essential in order to develop challenge-driven and innovative solutions.

 The DUT Partnership steps up the game to tackle urban challenges by enabling local authorities and municipalities, business and residents to jointly translate global strategies into local action. We strengthen existing skills and tools to make urban change happen and boost urgently needed transformations towards climate-neutral, liveable and inclusive cities.

The Partnership pursues this aim in three “Transition Pathways”:

(1) Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods (PED),

(2) Circular Urban Economies (CUE), and

(3) The 15-Minute City (15minC).
