Metropolitan Day 2018

Metropolitan Day

To celebrate the anniversary of the Montréal Declaration on Metropolitan Areas (October 7, 2015) and promote the idea that global challenges operate and must be addressed at the metropolitan scale, Metropolis – in partnership with CIPPEC, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), UN-Habitat’s MetroHUB, the University of Guadalajara, Politecnico di Milano, MTPA, GIZ and FGV-Eaesp – encourages its members to organize a day for local leaders to meet up with all metropolitan peers within their territory in order to discuss pressing issues that they face as a metropolitan community.

The Metropolitan Day campaign seeks, therefore, to raise awareness about the importance of improving metropolitan governance processes worlwide.

This initiative proposes that metropolitan cities of all over the world organize a one working-day meeting, during the first week of October 2018, where officials meet with their peers from neighboring cities to discuss the most pressing current challenges that their territory has to face and how to apply the New Urban Agenda in its metropolitan context.
