CrAFt Cities

In short


An EU-funded project supporting 60 European cities to become carbon-neutral, inclusive and even more beautiful by 2030.


Across Europe.


May 2022 – April 2025.

Who is it for

European cities, local and regional authorities, policy makers, culture and creative sector professionals, students, property owners.

The CrAFt project will place the transition to climate neutrality at the heart of urban stakeholders. We support the Mission Board on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities and the NetZeroCities platform in designing and deploying Climate City Contracts, based on knowledge from CrAFt’s 3 Sandbox Cities (Bologna, Prague, and Amsterdam) and 60 Reference Cities.

The CrAFt project is a collaboration with Norwegian University of Science and Technology – NTNUUniversity of Bologna, European League of Institutes of the Arts, Czech Technical University in PragueAmsterdam University of applied sciencesInternational Union of Property Owners and Locality Europe.

Together we will test and share collaborative local governance models to harness the value of inclusiveness, aesthetics and sustainability towards climate neutral cities.

One of the first steps in the project was a open call to European cities to become a CrAFt city: Cities that want to test and share models of transformation with the project partners, receive implementation support and become role models for cities across Europe. Read the call here.
