At the “Sharing Best Practice in Europe: Active Inclusion” summit on 10th July, Susana Forjan Project Coordinator for Cities for Active Inclusion explained the background to the project. Presentation below
Cities for Active Inclusion is a dynamic partnership of nine European cities – Barcelona, Birmingham, Bologna, Brno, Copenhagen, Lille Métropole-Roubaix, Rotterdam, Sofia and Stockholm – each establishing a Local Authority Observatory (LAO) within its administration. Their aim is to share information, promote mutual learning and carry out research on the implementation of the active inclusion strategies at the local level.
The observatories are coordinated by EUROCITIES, the network of major cities in Europe, and supported through a partnership between the European Commission (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion) and EUROCITIES.
