Local Debates

In 2018 over 60 local and regional dialogues are being organised in partnership with local organisations across 8 countries to discuss the impact of EU actions in territorial contexts. The events have brought together a variety of local stakeholders and interested citizens, engaging them in open exchanges about the benefits and challenges linked to the delivering of EU funding. Furthermore, the dialogues are providing a unique opportunity to collect inputs in view of the next EU financial period, starting in 2021. One of the main takeaways of the events is that local stakeholders are keen to exchange as to how the EU funding are invested in their municipality or region. They also want to contribute more to the communication of cohesion policy in order to best highlight its positive impact. The dialogues have seen the participation of thousands of people. The hosting countries have been Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden.
