Register to Cités Unies France 10th edition of the Meeting of local authorities’ international action

24 May 2019

Cités Unies France organises the 10th edition of its Meeting of local authorities’ international action on Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3  July, at the City of Sciences and Industry, in Paris. In a format that has proved its worth, these 2019 “Rencontres” are organised around the common theme: “Let’s develop sustainable territories together”.

This thematic which will feed the reflection on major themes:

  • Session 1: Towards the 2020 France-Africa Summit on sustainable cities: leading local authorities, bringing know-how and expertise, closer to the expectations of citizens. What mobilisation?
  • Session 2: Crises, resolution and reconstruction: in fragile state contexts, what response strategies for local authorities facing crises?
  • Session 3: New legislative context, in France and in Europe: What kind of international action of local authorities (AICT)? Expectations and needs of local authorities.

Conferences, plenary sessions, workshops, micro-workshops and geographical meetings will follow each other during these two days which will allow participants to exchange, to create platforms and consortia with foreign partners.

On the occasion of these “Rencontres”, Cités Unies France is organising a cocktail at which elected women who, through their action in the world, have reduced inequalities in their territories, will be distinguished.

Individual registrations are open:
