Impacting on European Policies and Practices

Since 2001 the Pact has been involved in a number of European networks with the aim of developing Dublin links with other European cities, impacting on policy developments at the EU level and introducing innovative ideas from other European cities to Dublin. These include participation in MetroNet, a network of large-city employment pacts, and active membership of the Social Welfare Committee and Education Committee of Eurocities, an organisation of over 150 European cities.
