This year the #EURegionsWeek will generate insights on digital transition and citizens' engagement, boosting the development of rural regions
On the 11-14 October will take place the 19th edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities, the European biggest annual four-day event where regions and cities prove the importance of regional and local level for good European governance, by creating jobs and improving the European Union cohesion policy.
The EURegionsWeek contributes to the ongoing debate on democracy and citizens’ engagement and has a special link with the Conference on the Future of Europe. As an unprecedented citizens-focused, bottom-up exercise, the Conference aims at giving Europeans a greater say on what they expect from the European Union. It is open to European citizens from all walks of life, with young Europeans playing a central role in it, civil society, regional and local authorities.
This year’s edition ‘Together for Recovery’ will take off virtually, with 300 sessions dedicated to cohesion policy, green transition, citizens’ engagement and digital transition. The purpose of the event is to bring together experts, decision-makers, politicians and practitioners of cohesion policy, as well as European, national, regional and local government officials and experts in the field to discuss common challenges and provide a platform for capacity-building for examining possible solutions in Europe’s regions and cities by managing the financial instruments and implementing EU cohesion policy. This year, the EU Week of Regions and Cities will cover topics of strong interest to the dRural project, imagining the future of European rural areas.
