Strong cooperation between subnational authorities is key to shape tomorrow’s best policies towards the citizens: sharing knowledge and exchanging best practices can bring innovative and inspiring ideas to build better territories. In a globalized world where every action taken has an incidence on numerous others, it is crucial to understand each other’s assets and differences. This is why the Assembly of European Regions (AER) does not limit itself to the European continent.
The AER and the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) are proud to announce the first US Transatlantic Subnational Leaders’ Summit (TAL) that will take place in Europe in the Spring on 2016.
Presidents of European regions will be invited to meet their US counterparts at this occasion. Together with a selected number of economic, social, academic and cultural stakeholders, the Summit will provide a unique platform of information and exchange on the key challenges faced by the territories. The agenda will be set up with the participating regions, to meet their specific needs and demands.
