The European Week of Regions and Cities partner regions and cities organised local events in 29 countries between September and November 2016. These events took the EWRC's theme of sustainable and inclusive growth, under the heading of
'Europe in my Region' or 'Europe in my City'. Check out the local events in your country:
In an effort to bring the message of the European Week of Regions and Cities closer to citizens, each participating region and city organises at least one event locally. The local event is to be held between September and November 2016 under the heading 'Europe in my region/city'.
Local events are organised around the event’s thematic priorities. They target the general public, potential beneficiaries of EU regional policy, expert audiences, academics and the media and can take various formats such as conferences, workshops, radio/TV broadcasts or exhibitions. Local events can also be organised in conjunction with the launch of EU regional policy projects or in the framework of annual information measures as required by the Structural Funds' regulations.
Regional and local administrations, institutions or organisations which are not members of a regional partnership can also propose local events in the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities.
They will have to apply separately including a description of the events planned.
For more information on the organisation of local events, please check the 'become a partner' section.
