Urban Planning and Regional Development

The Merage Foundation supported Negev Municipalities in city center redevelopment planning through public participation processes (Charrettes), and a geographical information system for data-driven decision-making. In addition, an unprecedented delegation of mayors and city planners visited Germany on a four-day workshop to learn about the latest models in urban planning and city center revitalization. The workshop included a study tour throughout Germany in which participants met with local mayors and professional staff members.
