2012-09-10

We are very pleased to release the sixth issue of the ReNewTown project newsletter.
The current issue introduces key facts about the project and its current implementation. ReNewTown constitutes a platform for discussion on urban regeneration problems reaching beyond the project's own case study research. It focuses on the most interesting urban regeneration examples in the countries involved in the project: Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Germany.

This issue contains the following articles:

THE ReNewTown GOOD PRACTICES DATABASES
The basic idea of the ReNewTown project is to take advantage of the experience and knowledge of related current and past initiatives from the last 20 years and, based on this, to develop knowledge and tools to support the revitalization of post-socialist urban areas in the cities of Central Europe. In this issue we present the database of good practices which is one of the key results of the ReNewTown project.

THE ReNewTown PILOT PROJECT IN PRAGUE
We explore possibilities of developing a program to support small business and professional activation of residentsin urban areas with a socialist burden by creation of a Centre for Small and Medium Enterprises.

AN EXAMPLE OF GOOD PRACTICE IN SLOVAKIA
We present a retirement home in Bratislava that is located in a building which originally served as a nursery. It demonstrates how a public building with a socialist burden, in finding a new use, may be used in a modern way.

HOW TO COPE WITH URBAN REGENERATION IN GERMANY
We present two different approaches to the problem of revitalization and share some conclusions based on two case studies from Germany.

AGENCY FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE GEMER REGION
This institution is one of eight ReNewTown project partners. It has been created to support and coordinate the economic and social development of the Gemer region. The agency collaborates with the public administration as well as the private and third sectors and is responsible for the consultancy and running of domestic and foreign grants focused on regional development and quality-of-life improvements.
