    Goals / Remit

    European Metropolitan Authorities (EMA) is a forum for leading politicians from Europe’s main metropolitan cities and metropolitan areas that is working since February 2015 when we had the first EMA Forum. EMA has 55 European cities and metropolitan areas participating in their activities.

    The main goal of EMA is to provide a space to discuss the challenges of European metropolitan governance and define the basis for a common partnership. This joint work is reflected in studies, meetings, common projects, and an annual Conference concluding with a political declaration adopted by the participants, advocating for a metropolitan dimension of EU policies.

    Main EU files targeted

    EMA advocates for a metropolitan dimension of EU Policies. Since 2105 EMA has been debating and working around Cohesion Policy, European Green Deal, Jobs and Social Rights, Sustainable Mobility and Transport. Multianual Financial Framework 2021-2027.

    In February 202O a delegation of EMA political representatives met Commissioner Elisa Ferreira to discuss about the future Cohesion policy, the European Urban agenda and their metropolitan dimension and impacts.
    A EMA delegation also met with Commissioner Corina Cretu in 2017.

    In the previous editions of the EMA anual conferences we have had the participation of representatives of the European Parliament, European Commission and the Committee of the Regions.

    The EMA forum 2022 held in Katowice (Poland) counted with the participation of the MEP Jan Olbrycht and with 92 participants from 14 different countries and 25 cities, metropolitan areas, and regions represented.

    EMA participates in various URBAN Intergroup from the European Parliament meetings. Last meeting was on the Metropolitan Vision for Europe 2050
