The European Week of Regions and Cities is around the corner with a variety of digital sessions looking at benefits of cooperation from different perspectives. For example, what happens to cooperation after a CBC project is over? Especially, if implemented at the EU’s external borders… The Northern cluster programmes come together to find out and “Let mayors speak of neighbourhood”!
For over a decade, cross-border cooperation between the EU and Russia has fostered hundreds of projects, contributing to the improvement of life conditions for hundreds of thousands of people. The Northern cluster programmes involving Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden joined forces to present a unique tool for cooperation between national, local and regional bodies who jointly address common challenges of border regions in the fields of environment, business support, border mobility and people-to-people cooperation.
Benefits and long-lasting relations between local and regional authorities across the borders will be showcased during “Let mayors speak of neighbourhood” workshop. Four mayors from the EU, Norwegian and Russian border regions will join the event to share their cooperation stories.
The workshop will take place on 14 October from 16.30 till 18.00 (CET). Considering the COVID-19 pandemic and the related health and safety restrictions, the workshop will be held online (Zoom platform).
