Case studies: Small cities co-creating ‘beta actions’ to stimulate change

The following case studies from the partner cities in the City Centre Doctor Project were all achieved by using own resources, i.e. people, materials and funding:


1. Idrija, Slovenia – Playground on the Main Square
2. Valmez (Valašské Meziříčí), Czech Rep. – Connecting the centre with a festival of lights
3. Nort-sur-Erdre, France – Telephone Booth Library
4. Naas, Ireland – Engagers App and Citizens’ Platform
5. Amarante, Portugal – Street Shops with History
6. Heerlen, Netherlands – Hotel Urbana
7. Medina del Campo, Spain – Underground Cellars
8. San Dona di Piave, Italy – Architectural impressions for uses of an old Water Tank
9. Radlin, Poland – Urban beach in the centre
10. Petrinja, Croatia – Urban Parktivities


Beta Actions is a term to describe short-term prototype actions or models to demonstrate a proposed action with the intention to evaluate its impact and viability after a period of three to six months.


The case studies were compiled in July 2018 by the lead expert of the City Centre Doctor Project, Wessel Badenhorst.
