Europe’s municipalities and regions focus on inclusion, diversity and equality

Over 500 local and regional leaders and experts from 40 different countries attended the Council of European Municipalities and Regions’ conference on inclusion, diversity and equality in Bilbao on 13 June.

The Agency underlined the importance of viewing integration and inclusion as a truly two way processs during the high-level closing panel.

It also spoke of the crucial role civil society organisations play in promoting inclusion and diversity. Recognising this, they need to be adequately resourced and backed by policies.
