A compendium of best practices on new territorial welfare

In the second half of the nineteenth century, industrial cities arise throughout Europe. Built to complement existing cities or as new foundations in the countryside, these settlements were byproducts of the entrepreneurial and cultural strategy that has characterized industrial production since the Industrial Revolution, therefore representing an important part of local heritage in many European regions. In this framework, the FACE UP project aims at creating a network of towns to explore together how to foster citizens' awareness of the historical-industrial heritage of European factory towns to contribute to and improve the debate on the future of Europe. The network will be to explore common roots to identify best practices, create a path of historic, economic, and social awareness fostering the participation of citizens in different countries, reflecting on new perspectives of cooperation between the private and public sectors to boost social welfare, equity, and justice, creating concrete examples of innovative and inclusive territorial welfare.
