The 10th edition of the “Internationalisation of towns & regions” meeting, organised by Cités Unies France and its partners, will be held on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd July 2019 in Paris, at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie.
Each year, this event allows French and foreign sub-national governments – small, medium and large cities, counties, regions, cities and other intermunicipal – to come together to make a prospective assessment of the challenges of the international action of local authorities, to consider new opportunities for exchanges and to create links and opportunities for cooperation.
The 2019 edition will focus on the theme of “local action to international action”, which will feed the reflection on major issues: territorial marketing, sustainable cities, crises and resilience of cities, gender equality, youth employability & climate.
Conferences, plenary sessions, workshops, micro-workshops and geographical meetings will be organised during these two days, which will allow participants to exchange, create platforms and consortia with foreign partners.
At this occasion, Cités Unies France has also decided to organise a gala evening. During this event elected women who have reduced inequalities on their territory thanks to their actions will be rewarded.
