CONNECTING THE DOTS
ACT NOW is an international programme run by The Innovation in Politics Institute, which supports local politicians in tackling the current challenges they face, such as migration flows, the climate crisis, and increasing social division resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The programme serves as the Institute’s competence centre for social cohesion, citizen engagement and youth empowerment, and focuses on the local level.
Within the scope of the ACT NOW programme we have established an international network of mayors, experts from civil society, and young people from Europe, the Middle East, Turkey and Northern Africa, who share their knowledge and experience in an effort to improve wellbeing for all.
What We Do
Issa was twenty at the time, and Sleiman fifteen. Their project remains one of the most empowering examples of youth activism which have deeply impacted the lives of displaced communities.
We spoke with Cynthia Reynolds about the avenues through which Circular Regions support digital infrastructure and approaches to help both urban and rural communities make the shift from a linear to a circular economy.
Today in times of climate crisis and loss of nature we need to expand. We must reinvent landscape architecture and grasp it in a more modern inclusive way.
