The CITIES FORUM is the place and moment to exchange on the urban dimension of Cohesion Policy, the Urban Agenda for the EU, the role of cities in implementing the European Green Deal, the EU response to the urban dimension of the 2030 Territorial Agenda, as well as highlight the new EU level initiatives developed in order to support cities.
The European Commission’s Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy is organising its biennial major event, the CITIES FORUM, on 16-17 March, 2023 in Torino, Italy.
The 5th edition of the CITIES FORUM will strive to create a space dedicated to sustainable urban development, in order to exchange about and inform on current urban challenges and available solutions. In essence, the event will highlight the green transition in cities, while re-affirming the core EU objective of social inclusion. The event also aims at asserting the role of small and medium sized cities, as well as functional territories in order to tackle place-based responses to local challenges.
