Dear colleagues, participants of 2nd ‘Cities and People. Local solutions for sustainable development’ International Conference!
I am sure that ‘Cities and People’ International Conference will become an effective platform for interaction of urban communities, civil society activists and municipalities in the development of local government.
It is important to maintain precisely such activities aimed at the development of the region as a whole and the formation of social and political life of territories in particular.
The solution of many issues in the field of local self-government is not possible without the active mobilization of civil society. This approach is yielding tangible results - increasing the availability of social infrastructure, the creation of modern workplaces, the introduction of effective practices for sustainable development.
I am sure that the work of the Conference will be substantive, dynamic and diverse, the discussion - productive and solutions worked out at the Conference will contribute to the strengthening of mutual trust between the municipal authorities and residents of the city.
I wish the organizers of the Conference new professional achievements and creative ideas, and its participants - a successful work!
