The Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, James Palmer, has been invited to represent the region at a summit of world leaders in Paris.

The summit is called ‘CityLab: Urban Solutions to Global Challenges’ and is being hosted by the Aspen Institute and The Atlantic and Bloomberg Philanthropies.

It will see mayors and world leaders meet to discuss opportunities and challenges facing cities including climate change, security and economic growth.

Mayor Palmer said: “This event is a fantastic opportunity to meet with other mayors from around the world to share best practice, learn from experiences and commit to working together to make our towns and cities vibrant places to live and work.

“Devolution and the creation of the mayoral post has led to these opportunities becoming available for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to be represented on a global stage and I am looking forward to bringing back new ideas and inspiration which we can look to deliver locally.”

The two day event includes panel discussions, workshops and field trips.

The attendance of the mayors is being financed by Bloomberg. It is the fifth year it has been held.
