This publication presents the conclusions of the 3rd EMA Summit, held in Warsaw on the 20th October 2017, which brought together mayors, presidents and political representatives of 23 European metropolitan areas, as well as the leaders of various institutions and networks.
The Conference addressed topics such as metropolitan solidarity and the role of metropolitan areas in EU Cohesion Policy post-2020, as well as good practices for collaboration between metropolitan areas. The event culminated with the signature of the Warsaw Declaration that supports the continuity of the Cohesion Policy beyond 2020 and calls for a more prominent role of metropolitan areas.
