It also encourages the active participation of citizens and youth in decision-making, city life and the redevelopment of urban spaces and the integration of disadvantaged groups through training and educational services. The involvement in the BRIGHT project represents a new challenge, an opportunity to expand its action’s range to cover an increasingly topical social problem and try to find a connection with urban and territorial politics and strategies that can help better understand the phenomena and develop the right policy toolkit to face it.
