The EU Urban Agenda: Commission unveils results of public consultation

Today the European Commission unveiled the results of the public consultation on the EU Urban Agenda during the 2nd European CITIES Forum in Brussels. The consultation shows that Europe can help cities address common challenges, and in turn, contribute to the Commission’s priorities such as a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate change policy. An approach focused on specific priorities, like the low carbon economy and social inclusion, with a stronger involvement of stakeholders and promoting a better coordination of EUpolicies relating to cities, will be key to turning the EU Urban Agenda into a reality in the near future. A press release is available in ENG, FR and DE. More information on the urban dimension of EU policies is available online. The 2nd European CITIES Forum, with interventions from Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President in charge of the Energy Union and Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu, is web streamed here.
