ALDA and metropolitan governments shaping EU urban policy

In the framework of the respective 15th and 10th anniversary of the European Week of Regions and Cities and of the European Local Democracy Week, ALDA and the partners of the MEANING consortium (Metropolitan City of Milan, Barcelona Metropolitan Area, Gdansk-Gdynia-Sopot Metropolitan Area, City of Zagreb, Metropolitan City of Bari, Riga City Council, and Porto Metropolitan Area) organise the workshop “Metropolitan governments shaping EU Urban policy”.
The event will be taking place on 11 October in Brussels at the premises of Apulia Region, Rue du Trone 62, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. It will reunite EU, national, regional and local policy/decision makers, authorities managing and evaluating cohesion policy programmes and projects, private companies, financial institutions, European and national associations to debate about the role of metropolitan governments in today’s Europe.
Preparations for new European strategies and funding post 2020 are underway, facing challenges like Brexit with potential repercussions on the European budget and urban policy.
In this context, a metropolitan dimension for EU urban policy becomes a relevant solution: challenges such as mobility, environmental quality, governance, and territorial cohesion are often best dealt with a metropolitan approach. This debate will reflect on key metropolitan priorities and contribute with concrete ideas for a metropolitan European Agenda.
Join the workshop and contribute to the discussion around the post-2020 European Urban Agenda!

This being an official event of the EWRC, registrations are mandatory via the official website of EWRC and open until 30 September. To register, please click here – CODE: 11B95
