In a globalising world, Mayors play an increasingly important role in the interplay of the different levels of decision-making and they provide a bridge between local, national and international levels. They collectively carry out projects that open up new perspectives for living together, gender equality, sustainability and for diversity. In this debate, we have invited European leaders, mayors and deputy mayors, who are convinced that by changing the city, we can change the world. What the invited personalities have in common is their work with the specificity of their city and their inclusive vision of diversity in the future. This debate will allow an exchange of experience between Western Balkans and the EU cities. Through its format, the session will use culture as a key driver to overcome preconceptions concerning the Balkan countries and focus on what connects us but also highlight the richness of Balkan culture and innovation.
