The European Commission and the European Committee of the Regions are organising the 5th Assises of Decentralised Cooperation on 10 and 11 July 2017.
More than 600 participants, local and regional authorities from the EU, Africa, Caribbean, Pacific and Latin America will come together to discuss common challenges and build sustainable partnerships.
On Day 1 – 10 July, Commissioner Neven Mimica and CoR President Markku Markkula will open the Assises.

In the parallel round tables, elected leaders will discuss key political issues identified by the cities and the regions.
On Day 2 – 11 July, the plenary session will share the conclusions of the round tables and debate on conclusions. Six thematic workshops will serve as forum of exchange of experiences and good practices.
