The URBAN Intergroup at the European Parliament is a cross-parties and cross-committees grouping with a horizontal approach to discuss urban related issues. We bring together over 89 MEPs representing most EU Member States, all the political groups at the European Parliament, and working in all the parliamentary committees. We work with 118 partners from local, regional, national and European level that represent the interests of Europe’s town and cities or work in the domain relevant for urban development.
The main objectives are to:
- monitor the legislative and non-legislative work of EP’s committees on urban related issues,
- work on common EU strategies – to put urban needs on the agenda of EU policies,
- be actively involved in the preparation of EU legislation,
- constantly stay in contact with partners and practitioners and
- inform about realisation of EU policies on the ground.
The work focuses on a number of subjects linked to sustainable development of urban areas such as:
- entivonment and energy efficiency,
- urban transport,
- social aspects (social exlusion, migration, ageing of the population),
- services of general interest,
- local public finances, etc.
