NETWORKS

The GPM is working with several continental network partners.

The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) is the official non-partisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are 1,408 such cities in the USA today. Each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor. The USCM is one of the founding partners of the Global Parliament of Mayors and has a representative in the GPM Executive Committee. The USCM serves as an important intermediary for United States cities.

EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities. Its members are the elected local and municipal governments of major European cities. EUROCITIES brings together the local governments of over 135 of Europe’s largest cities and over 45 partner cities, that between them govern 130 million citizens across 39 countries. As one of the founding partners of the GPM, EUROCITIES has a representative in the GPM Executive Committee and, by that, is an important liaison between the GPM and mayors of European Cities.
