Call for submissions of cities and regions: good practices on high quality architecture and built environment

The call in the framework of a new Peer-learning activity on high quality architecture, is supported under Creative Europe. Building on the recommendations of the European Member States Expert Group on high quality architecture and built environment for everyone, this peer-learning scheme will facilitate exchanges among the European Union’s cities, regions, Member States and relevant stakeholders on processes and good practices. Deadline for submission is 11 August 2023.

Peer-learning activities will demonstrate that building and planning for everyone improves cohesion, well-being and the sustainability of our cities and regions.

This will be done through:

  • a catalogue of 30 good practices from across the European Union, emphasising impacts and transferability from one local context to others;
  • 12 onsite peer-learning visits in European cities and regions (EU 27) taking place in 2024, allowing participants to learn from each other and from experts.

We are now looking for practices:

  • that are innovative
  • that are inspiring for other cities and regions
  • that have a real impact on the ground and with the local communities

Practices can be policies, projects, events or organisational structures developed and co-funded by local and regional authorities. They can be implemented by the authorities themselves or by other local stakeholders.


Following a call for applications, published in December 2022, the European Commission selected Eurocities and the Architects’ Council of Europe to implement a peer-learning programme on high-quality architecture in cities and regions. This project is based on the report Towards a shared culture of architecture – Investing in a high-quality living environment for everyone, published in 2021. The New resources for architecture professionals and policy makers to create high-quality living environments, published recently, will be an integral part of the peer-learning programme.
