Ghent and its international networks

The city of Ghent is a member of over 40 international networks including Eurocities, the most important for large cities in Europe.

International networks are extremely important for the City of Ghent. We collect and share knowledge about policy areas that are important to Ghent, from trade and culture to social policy, digitisation and climate. 
Thanks to these networks, we are able to include urban themes in the policy agenda and to receive resources, establish contacts and get recognition.
