The European Commission will host a main forum and a series of side events to debate how Member States and EU institutions should work together to ensure that cities play their full role in European development – and that their needs are fully reflected in policy thinking.
The forum will contribute to a strengthened profile of the urban dimension within EU Policies and wants to emphasize the importance of investments in urban areas and cities as agents for delivering EU policy objectives. The forum will consult key urban stakeholders across Europe on the need for an EU Urban Agenda, what it should contain and how it should be implemented. The forum will also discuss Europe’s role in global urban development as well as the role of business in the development of our cities.
The conference will take place in the Charlemagne Building rue de la Loi 170 – 1040 Brussels, Belgium.
