Atlantic Cities

Exchanges & cooperation

We work to foster transnational cooperation on the Atlantic Arc and all over Europe


For our members, good project ideas will never get off the page due to funding problems.

EU Projects

We are our members' center of expertise for writing proposals and managing European projects.


As a wide network of local authorities, we work to ensure that the needs of the Atlantic Arc cities are heard.


Our association helps cities and local authorities to attract tourism, talent and investors.


The Atlantic Futures (AF) is supporting young talent and their education, enterprise, employability and entrepreneurship in the EU.
