Hannover (2000)

The 3rd European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns took place in Hannover, Germany, on 9-12 February 2000 as the Campaign’s Millennium Event. 1,300 participants from across Europe came to Hannover; apart from a large number of German participants, there was an overwhelming participation from Spain, Italy and CEE countries.

More than 250 mayors or their representatives from all over Europe approved the 'Hannover Call' - a major achievement for the Hannover Conference 2000. Taking findings from dozens of workshops at the three-day conference, where over 1,200 delegates tackled the issues of future urban life, they debated signposts for new directions to be taken by decision-makers at European level.

The end of the conference resulted in making the 'Hannover Call', and the campaign municipalities emphasised their right to assume a central role in a developing Europe, and that the fate of the continent will largely be determined in its towns and cities, where 60 percent of Europeans have their homes.
