The European Quote
We are witnessing to the changing functions of city centres. The pandemic accelerated these processes even more and therefore the debate on the future of centres in the cities of the future is extremely important. We need to discuss city centres social functions, including the specificity of housing, but also economic (commercial) and cultural functions.
It is so important that we manage to create a real meeting between European cities and the actions they carry out in the hemicycle of the Parliament of Strasbourg!
The European conference on city centre is a unique opportunity to share good practices between european countries to make our city centres more dynamic.
Inner cities are centers of population, wealth, and consumption. But above all, they are strong identified landmarks of our cities. Naturally, each one has its own identity. Having a reflection on their development on a European scale makes possible a high level of standardization in order to take the most effective ideas, to offer a unique experience of shopping.
