The Living-in.EU Stakeholder Forum held on December 4th, 2023, from 13:00 to 15:00 CET proved to be a pivotal event gathering signatories and supporters committed to the Living-in.EU Declaration.  Focused on co-creating technical specifications for digital tools, projects, and future endeavours, the meeting served as a platform for collaborative innovation. 

Distinguished speakers delved into multifaceted topics crucial to the Living-in.EU mission, emphasizing the initiative's core values and vision.  

The meeting delved into essential topics such as: 

  • Living-in.EU's Mission Statement. After the first Mayors Digital Assembly, Living-in.EU conducted a consultation to identify the key priorities of the digital agenda in cities and regions across Europe. The following key priorities were identified and will drive the Living-in.EU mission in the upcoming years: advancing the twin green and digital transformation at local level; fostering technological innovation (city as a platform); better-informed policies through data; and, people-centred digital transformation and digital rights.  The official version of the new mission statement will be soon made available through our channels.
