debate is key 

Bringing together towns and citizens to debate their daily challenges. The more perspectives involved, the greater the opportunity for learning; out of multiple perspectives greater collective wisdom emerge. 

networking is growth

​Sharing common vision to challenges and searching together for development opportunities, networking between towns is a great long-term perspective for exchange of good practices and sustainable cooperation.  

Intercultural dialogue is a European value
