The Global Village City Hall

How European cities and regions help building more resilient connections with the world

Global Village / Stand

Since 2015, five major associations of local and regional governments active in development cooperation – AIMF, CLGF, PLATFORMA (CEMR), UCLG and UCLG Africa – are key partners of the EU thanks to the signature of Framework Partnership Agreements. Through these partnerships, the EU has recognised the role of cities and regions as policy- and decision-makers in addressing global and regional challenge and in implementing shared global agendas at local and regional levels.

Through peer-learning and exchange of expertise and knowledge, the 5 networks take action to address the 6 principles of Global Gateway partnerships and the 5 key areas: digital sector, climate and energy, transport, health, education and research.
