The Metropolis City Managers Community is loaded with new and dynamic activities in 2020. This year, Metropolis is fostering the engagement of the top leaders from our membership who are in charge of the day-to-day management of green infrastructure - in the various forms, functions, scales, and impacts that "green" can have in major metropolises.
The 5th edition of the City Managers Community meeting will be celebrated with the City Managers Days 2020, from 17-19 November 2020, in the framework of Smart City Live 2020. On this occasion, representatives from the Metropolis membership engaged in a process initiated online in June will be granted the opportunity to showcase their flagship projects to wider audiences, and get to learn live from the ground of green metropolitan infrastructure projects developed by the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona.
The Metropolis City Managers Community is a project funded by the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona that brings together every year a select group of public employees who are in charge of day to day administrative and operative management of major cities and metropolitan areas. Initiated in 2016 as a session of the Habitat III summit, since 2018 it has been organised in Barcelona, with a specific thematic focus, providing a balanced blend of:
- focused meetings of experts
- tailor-made site visits
- synergies with the contents and debates promoted by the Metropolis Observatory issue papers
- the opportunity of joining other activities of the Smart City Expo World Congress, one of the world’s leading event for cities
More information to be disclosed by August 2020.
