The Living-in.EU movement for the European way of digital transformation in cities and communities (DG CNECT) is a collaborative platform for cities and communities to accelerate their digital transformation the 'European way' (citizen-centric approach, ethically and socially responsible data usage, co-creation with and engagement of citizens, open and interoperable standards). Created by a group of cities, city representative groups Eurocities, Open and Agile Smart Cities (OASC), the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), and supported by the European Commission (DGCNECT, DGR&I and the Committee of the Regions), it was launched in December 2019 by the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The aim of Living-in.EU is to work together to scale up the use of data technology to tackle a range of interconnected challenges, including urban mobility, energy efficiency, and digital public services, while ensuring environmental sustainability in line with the European Green Deal.

Cities, regions and Member States leaders are invited to join the community by signing the ‘Join, Boost, Sustain’ Declaration, which NGOs, businesses and non-EU cities can also subscribe to as supporters.

More than 80 cities and communities across Europe have signed the Join, Boost, Sustain Declaration, from large capitals to smaller rural municipalities; from digital pioneers, to those beginning their digital journey. More than 50 organisations are affiliated as supporters. These include research institutes, large enterprises, SMEs and not-for profit foundations, who all subscribe to the Living-in.EU principles, aiming for a digital, cohesive Europe where digital transformation improves the well-being of all EU citizens.
