Committees’ Spring Plenary
11 April 2016 - 14 April 2016
The County Council of Timis (RO) and the Assembly of European Regions hosted the Spring Plenary of the three AER Committees, from 11-14 April 2016.
This series of events focused on “Communication & actions in times of crisis” reflecting the current situation in Europe, the observation of a rise of citizens’ worries and at the same a quick development of populist rhetoric. Regions often find themselves in a difficult position, having to act quickly and efficiently while their citizens also need to understand what is going on, why to adhere to the action and how to contribute positively to it. While communication refers both to listening better to citizens needs and creating a narrative which is engaging, it obviously goes hand in hand with actions.
