The main objective of the N-POWER project is to support innovative ‘neighbourhood development policies’ enabling the EMR cities to effectively reintegrate their ‘excluded’ neighbourhoods and populations in a creative, inclusive and sustainable development pathway. This will not only contribute to the reduction of environmental inequalities between neighborhoods and to the economic revitalization of the deprived neighbourhoods through the creation of new local activities and jobs, but also, to the social development of neighbourhoods, through effects in terms of e.g. community learning, social integration, social cohesion and collective organizational capacity. The N-POWER project will thus jointly work on environmental, social and economic reintegration of the excluded neighbourhoods and their inhabitants. The consortium is built up from a cross-border cooperation of 11 partners, of which 8 are responsible for neighbourhood development and 3 are of an academic nature. The consortium covers neighbourhood development policies over the EMR.
