Co-organised by the European Commission and the European Committee of the Regions, the Assises are a unique dialogue forum between regions and cities on cooperation for development.
The Assises will gather more than 600 representatives of local and regional authorities from the EU and partner countries: Africa, Caribbean, Pacific and Latin America. The Assises 2017 will take place in the wake of the new Agenda 2030 for Development and the Sustainable Development Goals. Cities and regions will showcase projects, discuss common challenges and establish new partnerships over two days: Plenary sessions, political round tables, project-oriented workshops, thematic stands and networking areas, all focussing on sustainable development.
