On 19 February, Saint-Denis hosted a preparatory meeting for the 7th Conference on the European Charter for the Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City, which will take place from 7 - 9 October 2010 in Tuzla (Bosnia-Herzegovina).
The meeting was chaired by Mr. Didier Paillard, mayor of Saint-Denis, Mr. Jasmin Imamovic, mayor of Tuzla, and Mr. Patrick Braouezec, President of Plaine Commune. Representatives of Bobigny, Barcelona, Geneva, Ljubljana, Nantes, San Sebastián, Saint-Denis, Plaine Commune, Tuzla and the CSIPD Secretariat participated in the meeting.


Progress was made on defining the programme, and pairs of cities were established for the organisation of each of the three plenary committees, which will cover social cohesion, quality services public and protection of the environment. The next preparatory meeting is scheduled for Tuzla on 29 and 30 April.

After the last Conference on the European Charter for the Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City, which took place in Geneva in 2008, the CSIPD was entrusted with the task of co-ordinating the promotion of the Charter and supporting the organisation of biennial conferences.
