Representatives from the EUROCITIES members come to oslo to share experiences and discuss how European cities can become more environmental friendly. The conference will both discuss the larger issues of sustainable development and specific topics related to air quality, water and waste management.
EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities. Our members are the elected local and municipal governments of major European cities and bring together the local governments of over 140 of Europe's largest cities and over 45 partner cities, that between them govern 130 million citizens across 39 countries.
Through six thematic forums, a wide range of working groups, projects, activities and events, EUROCITIES offer members a platform for sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas.
The objective is to reinforce the important role that local governments should play in a multilevel governance structure. EUROCITIES aim to shape the opinions of Brussels stakeholders and ultimately shift the focus of EU legislation in a way which allows city governments to tackle strategic challenges at local level.
