    Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy presents its new comic book

    13/05/2014

    The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy has just published a brand new comic book called ’Partners’ which aims at presenting Regional and Urban Policy through six stories designed to appeal to a young audience. The themes covered in this album are Research & Innovation, Urban Development, Environment, Support to SMEs, Social Inclusion, ICT, Cooperation between regions, Transport, Solidarity between regions in case of natural disasters, etc. These slices of life and stories of men and women were inspired by real EU-funded projects that illustrate the European Union’s contribution to reducing differences in standards of living and supporting the regions in their development.

    Rurban – Finland

    29/08/2012In sparsely populated Central Finland, inter-municipal co-operation is a long-standing tradition, with communities entering into voluntary agreements when necessary to provide key services. The European Commission, through the European Regional Development Fund is encouraging co-operative initiatives in Central Finland, including the development of more widespread broadband communications. This kind of action, reaching out to citizens in outlying areas, contributes to achieving the goal of 'smart and inclusive growth'

    RegioStars 2012 - INCLUSIVE GROWTH:  O4O - Lifelong experience boosts ageing communities

    13/06/2012People in the EU are living longer than ever, and the proportion of the population aged over 55 is growing all the time. In some rural areas on the fringes of northern Europe, many pensioners live by themselves, and risk becoming isolated and marginalised if public transport and other services are not available and they cannot afford special care. In these remote regions, skilled staff, such as carers and nurses, are often hard to recruit and retain. The O4O project – Older people for Older people – co-financed by the European Union, responded to this challenge, using existing skills and experience within ageing communities. O4O shows older people how they can take responsibility for providing the services they need, and organises support across rural Scotland, Finland, Greenland, Northern Ireland and Sweden. At a time when public spending is under pressure in many parts of the EU, the project demonstrates how vital networks and facilities can be maintained in a way that also encourages older people to stay active and make an important contribution to society. Winner of the RegioStars 2012 Award, Inclusive Growth category
