25+ cities already unlocked the potential of urban.
Urban is often overlooked. Opportunities are being lost. While urban has the power to make a social impact, create better infrastructure for sport, culture and address social problems. Challenges were public parties already struggled and tackled. Challenges and solutions where we can learn from and can be implemented in your city. With LINES we build bottom-up urban strategies based on experiences. Strategies that you can use yourself with various tools. The expertise is available.

Urban city scan
The urban community is differently organized than traditional sports and culture. Making it challenging to understand who and where our community is. We explore who the local urban community is, deep dive into their needs, and make roadmaps with supported next steps. The main goal is to bring the community and cities closer to each other. Making the LINES to realize next steps.
