Connecting Europeans

Jukka Vilen, the City Director from the City of Kemi encouraged the UBC member cities to join the campaign launched by the City of Joensuu (Finland), presenting the unity of Europeans.

The campaign is targeted at European cities, towns and municipalities. As the City of Joensuu claims:  “We are Europe – in our work, in our joy and in our sorrows. We create Europe through our shared lives; together we must make it yet better.”

The cities taking part in this campaign are to raise the European Flag in their city hall or display it in any possible way on Thursday 28 July 2016 and share the picture on the city web pages and in the social media.

The interested cities are invited to sign up here
