8th Cohesion Forum


  • 17 March 2022
  • Brussels, Belgium

The 8th Cohesion forum is a large-scale political event held every three years, bringing together high-level representatives from European institutions, central governments, regional and local representatives, economic and social partners, NGOs and academics to focus on the major challenges of European cohesion policy. It will be a unique opportunity to reflect with all stakeholders on how Cohesion, acting together with other EU policies can improve well-being for all European citizens against the background of globalisation, new disparities linked to the green and digital transitions, and demographic challenges. This edition of the Forum will be hybrid allowing many more participants to connect and participate virtually, thus bringing together around 2000 representatives of EU institutions, national, regional and local authorities from all Member States, social and economic partners, non-governmental organisations and representatives of the academic sector. Participation is upon invitation only but the Forum will be web streamed on Youtube during and after the event (link will be available on the 8th Cohesion Forum website).
