The European Summit of Regions and Cities is a gathering of local representatives organised every half mandate by the European Committee of the Regions to discuss the EU's future challenges.
This time, the Summit aims at increasing the impact and outreach of the
Conference on the Future of Europe. The voices of regions and cities must be heard and listened to, as they are key contributors to the European project and play an essential role in placing citizens at the heart of Europe.
The 9th European Summit of Regions and Cities is organised within the framework of the
French Presidency of the Council of the European Union. With the support of the French hosts and co-organisers, youth representatives, and a wide participation enabled by the hybrid format, the summit participants will be invited to showcase their contribution to the recovery efforts and discuss new ways of cooperation in view of a more sustainable future.
