About us

Our mission

TheMayor.EU - the European Portal for Cities and Citizens aims to enhance the understanding and cohesion between the citizens of the European Union, the local authorities and EU institutions.

The goal of the initiative is to keep the taxpayers informed about the good practices on a local, regional and European Union level, by honouring the work of local authorities. This will ultimately lead to improved cooperation and exchange of information between the municipalities in the European Union and will contribute to the socio-economic development of the regions and cities.

The portal is dynamic and open to every EU municipality willing to join it, no matter how big or small. The local administrations will gain access to a direct channel through which they can inform citizens of recent achievements and promote interesting projects in line with the shared European values.

What do we do?

Every day our team carefully selects the news that matter and presents them in an interesting way in several languages. Over the years,  TheMayor.EU has proven itself a valuable tool for all digital users by:

  • being a reliable information channel;

  • presenting the latest local news, important events and innovations;

  • offering a platform for promotion of EU cohesion policies;

  • becoming a place of inspiration to local governments, the business and NGO sectors.
