In this letter to the editor, Daniël Termont, Mayor of Ghent and EUROCITIES president, expresses the EUROCITIES belief that European cities should be given every opportunity to work across borders, and deliver solutions for their citizens. However, in the lead up to the summit of heads of state and government in Rome on 25 march, he asks EU and national leaders to consider three important messages from cities.
