REFORM Newsletter
REFORM Newsletter 
Dear readers,

Welcome to the latest newsletter of the REFORM project.
2022 was a great year of reconvening with each other. We had great exchanges in Central Macedonia (GR), Emilia-Romagna (IT) and Greater Manchester (UK) during our study visits. Exchange also took place on the local level with citizens and stakeholders. The remaining consortium and the citizens came back stronger from the crisis, thanks to the local resilience measures that were implemented in Manchester, Thessaloniki and Bologna.

After all these months tugged away at home, we were glad to see the local achievements on the ground. Whether it was the refurbished Kodra Military Camp, which was opened to the public of Thessaloniki, or the newly installed local traffic information in Manchester.

We took this extension to wrap up our work and put a proverbial ribbon on the project. Enjoy discovery of our final results below. In case you prefer some audiovisual content, don't forget to check out our videos.
