Bringing together a diversity of public institutions responsible for the government of major urban agglomerations, we advocate engaged metropolitan governance that attends to social life in all its complexity, seeking to enhance the quality of life of all.
To reach this end, we foster the global connections and internationalization of our membership, closely following global political discussions and international conferences, and offering new spaces of visibility for our leaders to be recognized as world champions on the various issues that affect metropolitan citizens. As a consequence, not only do we support the implementation of international agreements by our members, but also encourage them to set the global agenda, by bringing up metropolitan perspectives to the United Nations and other relevant organizations.
