We are happy to invite you on 18 June in Brussels to the final conference of the Integrating Cities project ‘ImpleMentoring, City-to-City Support for Integration’, led by EUROCITIES and involving 15 EUROCITES member cities, and co-financed by the DG Home of the European Commission through the European Integration Fund. Gathering senior officials from Europe’s major cities, representatives of EU Institutions and International NGOs, this one-day event will be the opportunity to officially launch and disseminate four new Integrating Cities toolkits and present and debate with practitioners and politicians the key findings of the pilot project ImpleMentoring, as well as discovering how mentoring schemes can help cities to shape the future of European integration.
The four toolkits explore the themes of:
- Enhancing public perception of migration & diversity
- Managing diversity and promoting equality in cities’ administration and service provision
- Making participation effective in diverse neighbourhoods
- Engagement in local policy-making processes and political participation of migrant communities
They aim at providing tools and guide questions for cities willing to improve their practice in these areas, based on the practices gathered in the participating cities and the Migration & Integration Working Group. The event will be followed by drinks and the inauguration of the ImpleMentoring infographics exhibit.
