Cooperation between government levels is key to addressing global challenges sustainably and innovatively. The Metropolitan City of Bologna seeks to achieve this through promoting institutional innovation processes. The Metropolitan City is a key player for the promotion of strategic action through creating partnerships with local authorities and businesses. The most important companies in the metropolitan area (Marconi Airport of Bologna, Automobili Lamborghini, Bonfiglioli, Caab, Crif, Emil Banca, Ima, Philip Morris Bologna and Tper), are working together to develop good practices for the protection of workers fundamental rights, including equal opportunities and corporate welfare.
This event, organised in partnership with the CoR, aims to discuss good practices for equal opportunities on the labour market. Discussion will centre around the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Territorial governance strategies will be defined to support a process based on local authorities' actions.
European regions and cities have a strategic role to contribute to the European strategy through their policies, projects and international relations. The conference will bring together representatives from the European Institutions, stakeholders and policy makers to discuss how to successfully contribute to the European strategy on social responsibility from a gender perspective.
