One of the projects presented at the forum was Urban Vision Lutsk research, the first comprehensive urban study of Lutsk, initiated by Algorytm. The project began in 2023 by gathering information about Lutsk from open sources and conducting workshops with residents. This effort resulted in a digital database about the city, considering its potential and the needs of its citizens.

The study is now publicly available in both digital and print formats.

The Urban Vision Lutsk project is implementing by the Urban Reform NGO, (Kharkiv), ORG Permanent Modernity (New York / Antwerp / Brussels), and Misto.Reboot NGO (Lutsk), initiated by Algorytm platform and supported by the Lutsk City Council.

According to Alexandra Naryzhna, architect and head of the Urban Reform city development office, the study's second phase has now begun. The Belgian company ORG Permanent Modernity has joined the project team, and now the team works on creating a stakeholder map, building "bridges" between Lutsk and international organizations, donors, and scientists, and studying the city's transport model.

The project aims to create a strategic vision plan and future development strategy for Lutsk.

I talk to people in Ukraine and I get the feeling that there are concerns about whether urban planning is timely, given that safety and military support come first during a war. However, I'm convinced that Ukraine needs to start planning for reconstruction now

said Hendrik Bloem, architect and urbanist at ORG Permanent Modernity.

As Algorytm was a partner of the Lviv Urban Forum, our team organized one of the forum's events — a public dialogue on "Community Development: Finding Balance During Wartime."
