  • A política de Coesão da União Europeia: investir nas suas Regiões e Cidades

    A política de Coesão da União Europeia: investir nas suas Regiões e Cidades

    16/07/2014

    Todos os anos, a UE investe milhões de euros na criação de emprego e no crescimento económico, a fim de ajudar a reduzir as diferenças sociais e económicas entre as regiões europeias. Este vídeo de curta duração dá informações sobre a forma como os investimentos da UE podem melhorar a quotidiano dos cidadãos ao estimular o crescimento económico na região onde vivem. 

    Nos últimos cinco anos, a política de coesão da UE criou mais de 600 000 postos de trabalho; investiu na formação profissional de 15 milhões de pessoas por ano, para melhorar a sua empregabilidade; e cofinanciou a construção de 25 000 km de estradas e 1800 km de caminho-de-ferro; garantiu ainda o abastecimento de água potável a mais 3 milhões de pessoas; investiu em 200 000 pequenas e médias empresas e 61 000 projetos de investigação. Estes números continuam a crescer dado que os projetos que tiveram início nos últimos 5 anos continuam a produzir resultados. 

    Tudo isto tem sido possível graças ao Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional, ao Fundo de Coesão e ao Fundo Social Europeu que, em conjunto, representam mais de um terço do orçamento da UE.

    Rural-urban partnership: key to a prosperous future for Europe

    29/08/2012

    Europe is a complex patchwork of urban and rural areas, where people live in different ways but face common challenges. City- and country-dwellers are mutually dependent, and both sides need to cooperate to achieve a sustainable future for everyone. The European Union’s Rurban initiative fosters formal and informal partnerships around a whole string of issues such as research and innovation, energy, water supply, food production, transport, tourism and leisure, and many more. Through its cohesion policy, the EU invests more than one-third of its budget in promoting smart, sustainable and inclusive development across Europe. The aim is for all regions, whether urban or rural, to have equal access to the benefits of growth.

    Georgina MacLeod, the O4O project

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Georgina MacLeod about the O4O project. People 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.

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Trixie Neilson from GRaBS project. Urban areas are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. To enable European towns and cities to adapt successfully to the challenges of extreme weather and warming temperatures, and to achieve sustainable growth, local people need to be consulted and actively involved in improving their environment. The GRaBS project – Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco-towns – focused on ‘green’ open spaces and ‘blue’ water resources. Trees and grasslands, for example, help to lower temperatures in towns, through evaporation. The project worked with local communities, helping them to improve their own environment and create healthier, safer and more pleasant living spaces for everyone.

But in South East Malmö, Sweden, a neighbourhood with a population of 80 000, the SÖM project offered an outstanding example of how measures working together can bring new hope to a depressed community. The project started by analysing the needs of local people in four of Malmö’s poorer areas. This generated 10 projects on issues such as social integration, local growth and job creation. Partnership was key to success, so the project built a network of public and private participants; contacting businesses, universities, property owners, NGOs and community groups. Within a year, they created a coordination platform to ensure the best use of EU structural funding. Winner of Regiostars 2012 Award, Citystar category
