Shrink Smart - The Governance of Shrinkage


Stakeholder workshops

Shrink Smart involves stakeholders from the case study regions and from the national and EU level into its research activities. In all case study cities, local stakeholder workshops took place in 2010.
In May 2011, the Polish team organized a stakeholder conference on urban shrinkage on the regional level in the Upper Silesian Industrial Agglomeration.
From 30 September-1 October 2011, a stakeholder workshop on challenges of shrinkage for local governance brought together practitioners from all seven case studies in Halle (Germany).

On 26 March 2012, a policy informing workshop on key results of the project with politicians and stakeholders of the EU will be held in Brussels.
