European Week of Regions and Cities

March 18 | 14:00 - March 19 | 17:00 UTC+1

The European Summit of Regions and Cities is the largest gathering organised by the European Committee of the Regions for local and regional elected representatives to meet, share and have their say on what is happening in the European Union and its future. If you are one of the 1,2 million locally and regionally elected representatives or you are involved in the life and future of your community, this is your place to be!

Global challenges, local solutions

Everywhere people are facing multiple crises and challenges, and cities and regions are the first to come up with solutions. In Mons, we will gather leaders from all corners of the world to hear their visions for the future of our communities.

Cohesion, well-being and sustainability

People and planet first: this is the approach we need to build a sustainable future. With cohesion at the heart, regions and cities work every day to make sure no communities are left behind. At the Summit we will show how challenges are transformed into solutions.

Local means innovation

Innovation starts locally. Cities and regions lead when it comes to tackling the climate crisis or embracing the digital revolution, by putting people at the heart of their visions. In Mons, we will learn from each other to build the future we need.

Cities and regions at the heart of democracy

Democracy starts at local level. Cities and regions are the closest to and most trusted by the people. At the Summit we will discuss their many roles, from policy actors to European election mobilisers, crisis managers and architects of the future.

Join the European Summit of Regions and Cities!

Thousands of mayors, councillors, regional ministers and top European and global decisionmakers will gather in Mons, in the Walloon Region of Belgium, in the heart of Europe, to debate the challenges and solutions for the future of Europe and beyond.

Organised by the European Committee of the Regions together with Walloon Region and the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the 10th European Summit of Regions and Cities will bring a new perspective on topics at the heart of people’s concerns, such as democracy, sustainable development, the future of the European Union and its enlargement, the need to ensure social, economic and territorial cohesion, and dealing with the consequences of the war against Ukraine.

Global challenges will be addressed by bringing together different perspectives from across the world. The European Committee of the Regions is particularly proud that this occasion coincides with its 30th anniversary, and invites you to join the celebrations.
