This project will promote the cohesion of a network of Metropolitan cities by sharing knowledge on specific topics throughout international events hosted by each partner.
It will be a chance for citizens and future generations to develop an active citizenship and a strong sense of inclusion and integration. Hence, CAMELOT is about building a thematic network of European Metropolitan Cities that will exchange experiences about the management of the European funds and the role of metropolitan cities in the future of European governance, keeping in mind that the participation of citizens in the process comes first. This network will include Metropolitan cities with years of experience with metropolitan institutions and realities. Metropolises are a known unit of implementation, thanks to their closeness to citizens and their leverage in fostering civic participation. Their need to improve local governance and citizens participation is clear, since their policy challenges are now multi-level, multi-objective and multi-stakeholders, and their role in implementing European policies and development initiatives is increasing yearly.
