In many different parts of Europe, there are thousands of square kilometers of public space with great potential underrated and not recognized as an effective urban resource. This perception brings together organizations from nine different cities in a collective effort to unlock the potential of European rooftops. The European Creative Rooftop Network (ECRN) - financed by the Creative Europe program until 2024 - is working towards turning rooftops into creative solutions for social, economic and environmental issues faced by Europe in the near future.The municipality of Faro is one of the founding partners and leads this network of nine cities. The thematic approach the municipality seeks for its rooftop policies is inspired by how these allow us to observe the city through a different perspective and allow us to reimagine them in many different ways, leading to three different areas of development: arts, community and sustainability. The main goal is to transform Faro’s rooftops into new public spaces: places for green and sustainable encounters for the community to prosper. The ECRN provides the international inspiration necessary to bring to life the projects Faro wishes, furthermore allows the exchange of local knowledge from the municipality with fellow Europeans. On the 1st of December of 2021, the partners gathered in Antwerp on the top of the MAS building, a rooftop accessible to the public. The nine partning cities are different culturally, urban planning and weather but seek to find common similarities within the “European cityscape of rooftops” and exchange knowledge on common patrimony. Along with Faro, the ECRN connects the following partners: Amsterdam, Antwerp, Barcelona, Belfast, Chemnitz, Gothenburg, Nicosia and Rotterdam.
