City leaders from the EUROCITIES network met MEPs from the European Parliament’s Urban Intergroup on 25 February.
This follows the European Commission’s launch last year of a debate on the EU urban agenda. The EU Urban Agenda is essentially about how EU initiatives that impact cities can be better co-ordinated and how cities can be more involved in EU policy making.
This meeting between EUROCITIES and MEPs moved the political discussion a step further by bringing together local and EU level perspectives together. Sir Albert Bore hosted a thematic discussion on sustainable urban mobility as part of this event.
