EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities. Founded in 1986, the network brings together the local governments of more than 130 large cities in 37 European countries. EUROCITIES represents the interests of its members and engages in dialogue with the European institutions across a wide range of policy areas affecting cities. Through a wide range of Forums, Working Groups, projects and events, EUROCITIES provides a platform for promoting the urban agenda in European policymaking and for sharing knowledge and exchanging on innovative solutions among its member cities.
EUROCITIES works across a wide range of urban policy areas: these include sustainable mobility, road safety, intelligent transport systems, energy efficiency, environment, climate change, air quality, social affairs, green economic development and cohesion policy, culture and the knowledge society. EUROCITIES has a rich experience of working with European institutions: the European Commission, both at political and technical level, as well as with the European Parliament, the Committee of the Regions and EU member states, to ensure that climate, recovery, inclusion at the local level are effectively addressed. As the network of major cities, EUROCITIES puts local authorities together and builds up bridges among them to create optimum conditions for exchange, transfer and take-up activities.
The EUROCITIES Mobility Forum and its working groups function as a dedicated platform for sharing best practices on urban mobility, and for developing joint policy statements and EU funded projects. Its members are committed to promoting more sustainable and integrated urban transport systems, better demand management tools, providing citizens with convenient and accessible public transport, and protecting the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
