Creative Competitive Cities: Building our Future Together

More than ever before cities need to be creative and find new ways of connecting and collaborating to unlock solutions to the challenges confronting our citizens, services and communities.

At EUROCITIES 2018 Edinburgh we will explore the role of culture and creativity in driving successful, inclusive and prosperous cities and enriching the quality of life of our citizens.

This will include sharing innovative approaches emerging from the EUROCITIES Cities4Europe campaign for involving our citizens in a dialogue about our future in Europe.

As 2018 is Scotland’s Year of Young People there will be a special youth programme so young people can have an active voice in the discussions and share their perspectives. Our people are the source of the creativity that drives successful cities and our young citizens are the future.

EUROCITIES 2018 will present an exceptional opportunity to reach out through culture and young people beyond borders to broaden horizons, strengthen ties between our communities and cities and work together to shape Europe’s future.

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh!
