From the Sea to the City – a conference of cities for a welcoming Europe
25 June @ 9:00 - 26 June @ 20:00
While the EU and Europe’s national governments double down on migration deterrence at any cost, more and more cities across Europe are becoming the agents of change for a solidarity Europe, taking responsibility for protecting human lives. Welcoming municipalities are growing in number all over Europe and represent a powerful political voice, able to relaunch Europe from the bottom-up. The conference is thought to be another step in the process of creating a stronger European network of cities, municipalities, and civil society with the aim to advocate for an active role of cities in European migration policy.
From the Sea to the City – a Conference of Cities for a Welcoming Europe will bring together European mayors, city representatives, local stakeholders and civil society from all over Europe that advocate for safe passage in order to open up opportunities for practical, open-minded solutions which place human rights at the centre of future migration politics.
The hybrid conference will take place on June 25th and 26th in Palermo and online. All panels and discussion sessions can be followed online.
You can register for the conference here.
