The European Quote
We are witnessing to the changing functions of city centres. The pandemic accelerated these processes even more and therefore the debate on the future of centres in the cities of the future is extremely important. We need to discuss city centres social functions, including the specificity of housing, but also economic (commercial) and cultural functions.
Once again, we are proud to be among those who, throughout France and Europe, are recognized for reshaping the City, revitalizing its business, and responding to the diversity of needs and uses identified and in the making!
It is so important that we manage to create a real meeting between European cities and the actions they carry out in the hemicycle of the Parliament of Strasbourg!
Sustainable city centers are a necessity. Topics covered and discussed during this European Forum are vital for thinking and building the cities and city centers of tomorrow. Dear European partners, I’m delighted to welcome you to Strasbourg next June!
The European conference on city centre is a unique opportunity to share good practices between european countries to make our city centres more dynamic.
Inner cities are centers of population, wealth, and consumption. But above all, they are strong identified landmarks of our cities. Naturally, each one has its own identity. Having a reflection on their development on a European scale makes possible a high level of standardization in order to take the most effective ideas, to offer a unique experience of shopping.
“The key role of local governments is to develop cities as green, intelligent, and innovative. Along with the successful blend between traditions in education, entrepreneurship, and culture we can achieve digital and inclusive transformation of the regions.”
