A brand new concept, combining pleasant times and useful discussions, we are proud to introduce you with our first Cocktail Debate to take place on 21 March in London, at 5 PM, in the framework of the AER Committees’ Spring Plenary. After the opening conference on sustainable financing for the regions, all participants are invited to a networking drink to celebrate reunions with your peers from Europe or simply top get to know each other better.
To introduce this networking session, two contradictory speakers will have 10 minutes each to underline their main arguments regarding the consequences of the Brexit for subnational authorities in UK and in Europe. After the speeches, the floor is open to the questions of the audience, and we encourage all participants to continue the discussions in an informal and relaxed way, and chat over a glass of your favorite drink.
The discussions on Brexit and the many unknown consequences it may bring are still high on the AER agenda. The AER Bureau adopted a declaration in Vienna in October 2016, reminding the European decision-makers that status quo is not an option for the European regions, which was widely distributed to all European Commissioners and Members of the European Parliament.
