WHO/Europe and the WHO European Healthy Cities Network work together continually and in annual meetings to discuss new initiatives, consider progress and share new evidence or inspiration from the field. The meetings of the WHO European Network are scientific, political and strategic and always include a strong political presence from the participating cities and networks. Each meeting is summed up by a political statement endorsed by the mayors in attendance.
