On February 5, 2022, a meeting of the krk UrbanHub Council – a sustainable urbanization hub based in Krakow – was held.

The meeting was attended by an invited guest, a councilor of the city of Krakow – Łukasz Maślona

During the meeting, issues related to the further development of krk UrbanHub were discussed and activities in which the hub will be involved in the near future were discussed. The current task for the hub is to get involved in developing a revitalization program for the Wesoła quarter. krk UrbanHub cooperates with the Krakow Development Agency in order to develop a concept for the development of this extremely attractive area of Krakow. The development of the revitalization program for the Wesoła quarter would be the beginning of the process of developing a new Municipal Revitalization Program, which should be established by 2023.
Other planned activities ofkrk UrbanHub include an attempt to develop a master plan for Wesoła and the initiation of the Nowy Bauhaus Wesoła project.
krk UrbanHub is a national and international meeting place that engages people in architecture, design and sustainable urban development. This is done through exhibitions, events, business development, new partnerships, customized workshops, acceleration programs and export services.
Here, the door will be open to anyone who wants to experience, feel and understand city life – and anyone who wants to be part of the professional networks and deep professional environments that develop the sustainable cities of tomorrow.
