3 Our main aims At the European level: work as an advocacy body to represent the New Towns, promote them and strengthen their role on a regional and trans-national level To inform New Towns about the activities of the European Union and relevant programs, especially Structural Funds For members: work as a Platform they can use to exchange information, share good practices and implement common projects

4 4 Priorities

5 Network of artists or associations Gathering of young people Study visits Twinning activities New (European) projects Experts meetings Conferences Trainings Forum Activities

6 Themes Urban renewalSocial cohesion Sustainable development Entrepreneurship The rapid growth of New Towns can cause specific problems linked with urban renewal. The ENTP is starting an exchange of information and good practice on this theme in order to help New towns in developing their urban renewal policies. We believe that local authorities play a main role for the social environment of inhabitants. This theme is implemented through: 3 gender equality projects, “knowledge networks” project on local governance, the “migrant woman” project, the “ARCADE” project on culture and development and proposals on “youth exchange” and fight against social exclusion. This theme is promoted because ENTP believes that local authorities play a large role in finding a balance between economic development and environmental, health and social issues. The theme is implemented through different projects: the Encourage project and the Connected Cities project. ENTP is starting to promote Entrepreneurship’s projects, taking into account the high demands of the partners in working on this issue and its relationship with the other ENTP’ s themes. Therefore, ENTP is beginning to work on projects related to: Development of local economic competitive advantages, promotion of SME, attraction and expansion of new business and private investments and formation of high or specialized skilled workers
