More than 500 participants from all over Europe are expected to take part in the conference. Speakers will include Danuta Hübner, EU Commissioner for regional policy; Wolfgang Schuster, Mayor of the city of Stuttgart and CEMR Vice-president; Antonio Arrufat Gascón, Vice-president of the provincial government of Teruel, FEMP (Spanish Federation of. Municipalities & Provinces); as well as representatives from the EU Commission and experts on the issue of demographic changes.
The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) has also published a publication on "The impact of demographic change on local and regional government".
