European New Towns Platform - ENTP
The ENTP (European New Towns Platform) is the organization representing the new towns and fast growing suburban centres. Created in 2001, ENTP is a growing network composed of 32 cities from 12 countries and several partners.
ENTP has two main objectives: for its members, to work as a platform to exchange information, share good practices and implement common projects; At the European level, to work as an advocacy body to represent the New Towns, promote them and strengthen their role on a regional and transnational level. The main activity of ENTP is coordinating projects in partnership with a number of members. The main themes of the ENTP activities are: Urban Renewal, Social Cohesion, Sustainable Development and Promotion of local economy.
ENTP activities include the exchange of information and experiences through conferences and workshops, the drafting, coordination and participation in European projects, the support to common projects on environment, culture, urban development and cooperation with third countries, the information about the activities of the European Union and relevant programs, the participation in the dialogue with the European institutions, and the visibility for New Towns.
