Eurocities will hold its second mayors summit over 20-21 March 2019 in Brussels to launch its political manifesto ahead of the European elections and to present the results of their cities’ work in bridging the gap between Europe and its citizens.
At a time when Europe is striving to retain its legitimacy and relevance, cities can provide a critical link with people. The mismatch between citizens’ expectations and what can be done to tackle our most pressing challenges is causing an increasing distance between political institutions and the public.
With their ‘Cities4Europe – Europe for citizens’ campaign, cities are now leading the way towards the creation of societies where people come first and where trust between people and public authorities is strengthened.
As mayors and city leaders from across Europe we are committed to being strategic partners to the EU institutions and working towards a more positive future for Europe and its people.
The summit will be the opportunity to launch their political manifesto ahead of the European elections in May: ‘The city leaders’ agenda for the EU’.
