EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities. Its members are the elected local and municipal governments of major European cities.

EUROCITIES was founded in 1986 by the mayors of six large cities: Barcelona, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Lyon, Milan and Rotterdam.

Today, the network brings together the local governments of over 130 of Europe’s largest cities and 40 partner cities, that between them govern 130 million citizens across 35 countries.

Through six thematic forums, a wide range of working groups, projects, activities and events, it offers members a platform for sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas.

EUROCITIES influences and works with the EU institutions to respond to common issues that affect the day-to-day lives of Europeans. Its objective is to reinforce the important role that local governments should play in a multilevel governance structure. It aims to shape the opinions of Brussels stakeholders and ultimately shift the focus of EU legislation in a way which allows city governments to tackle strategic challenges at local level.
