Act Now Mayors’ Conference 2023
The conference is held under the patronage of the Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine, Oleksandr Kubrakov, and the Mayor of Gdansk and Chair of the European Committee of the Regions Working Group on Ukraine, Aleksandra Dulkiewicz.
In addition to the terrible human costs of Russia’s criminal war of aggression against Ukraine, it has left a trail of destruction, impacting entire cities and villages. However, local self-government in Ukraine has proven to be a stable foundation in times of peace as well as war. The ACT NOW Mayors’ Conference 2023 aims to spotlight the vital role of Ukrainian municipalities for the democratic and resilient development of Ukraine in line with the European Charter of Local Self-Government.
Embracing the unbroken spirit of the country, the conference aims to empower local leaders, to inspire fruitful partnerships as well as to enhance cooperation between European and Ukrainian municipalities, contributing to Ukraine’s EU accession journey. Furthermore, it will help to equip local leaders with the essential skills and methods needed to drive the reconstruction process.
