Open Days 2009 - European Week of Regions and Cities: extracts from the event that associated European and American Mayors to join forces to fight against climate change
The Open Days - European Week of Regions and Cities 2009 – took place from 5 to 8 October 2009 in Brussels.With more than 6000 participants from around 40 countries, including all the EU Member States, the candidate countries and Brazil, China, Iceland, Japan, Russia, Ukraine and the United States, the Open Days brought together politicians, practitioners, academics and representatives from businesses, banks and civil society organisations for exchange and networking on local and regional issues. Under the overall theme of 'Global challenges, European responses', debates focused on regional responses to the economic crisis and to climate change.On 7 October 2009, the event 'Climate change and regions on the road to Copenhagen' took place on the Berlaymont Esplanade. A giant terrestrial ball with a map of the European regions was signed by Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, and Luc van den Brande, President of the Committee of the Regions. About one hundred Mayors of Regions from Europe and the United States also signed the giant globe on behalf of their regions. They sent a message to express their readiness to contribute to the fight against climate change ahead of the Copenhagen climate summit in December.The aim of the Open Days - European Week of Regions and Cities - is to facilitate debate and networking among key players in regional and local development from the public, private and academic sector. In the space of just six years the event has become a key event at which cities and regions have provided practical evidence of their capacity for creating growth and jobs, implementing EU cohesion policy in such a way as to achieve the best results.
