  • Have your say - 11.09.2020

    What do cities and regions think of EU trade policy?
    The European Commission is investigating how well it engages civil society in EU trade policy and how national and local authorities organise trade dialogues at their level. The EU executive hopes to improve transparency and citizen dialogue in the making of trade policy.

    This is an opportunity for cities and regions to have their say. Is EU trade policymaking sufficiently transparent? Are national and local concerns sufficiently taken into account by the European Commission? How can the process be improved?

    To share your views, please complete the Commission’s brief survey, available in 22 languages.
  • ​Urban Security - 27.08.2020

    Consultation: shape future policies on urban security
    Is your local government working on urban security? Would you like to share good practices with your counterparts around Europe in the use of smart and safe technologies to secure cities?

    The EU’s Urban Agenda Partnership on Security in Public Spaces is drafting its action plan and wants to collect concrete information coming from the ground.

    Should you want to contribute, you have until 9 September to complete this public survey.
