(02 June 2015) – Today the European Commission unveiled the results of the public consultation on the EU Urban Agenda during the 2nd European CITIES Forum, in Brussels.
The consultation shows that Europe can help cities address common challenges and, in turn, contribute to the Commission’s priorities such as a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate change policy.
The consultation shows a clear demand by stakeholders for more coordination between all of the EU policies with an urban dimension.
The consultation generated 225 responses. Many respondents were local authority associations, trade and industry federations, civil society organisations, thus representing a much larger number of interested parties. In addition, some Member States have carried out national consultations with local authorities.
