​Cities and municipalities are the closest democratic institutions to our citizens. Their contributions are fundamental to enhancing democracy, which includes bridging the gap between citizens and the EU institutions, while improving the quality of EU regulation and policy-making, which is implemented at the local level.

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) in cooperation with Eurocities and the Council of European Municipalities and Regions, wish to discuss these elements at the event Cities fostering democracy in the European Union, which will take place in a hybrid format on 14 October 2021 (2.30 to 5 p.m. CET), after the CoR plenary session.

The CoR has secured a substantial role for its representatives in the Conference on the Future of Europe. It is holding a series of local dialogue to ensure that the debate reaches citizens where they live. In particular, this event on cities is the second of several events focusing on regional, urban, and rural areas in order to bring political leaders' voices to the Conference.

We believe that the experience gained by mayors through permanent communication with their citizens in city hall debates and other deliberative and participatory practices, such as participatory democracy and budgeting instruments, can also pave the way for more inclusive and engaged governance at the European level.
