Journal 1: Putting vulnerable people at the heart of the city

Journal 1: 1/3 of Home Silk Road is completed
UIA Expert Ruth Owen presents Lyon’s initial challenges, the most relevant of which is “the participative approach for co-implementation. Using culture to facilitate participation and co-construction has emerged as a critical ingredient for the successful implementation of the project. The project has already achieved a lot in terms of putting vulnerable people at the heart of the city. However, a major test of impact in the next months will be how adequately and sustainably vulnerable people can be housed.”
