Dear members, the Assembly of European Regions is looking for hosts for its future events!
Since AER’s creation, we have brought our member regions together all across Europe. In 2018, we would love to arrive at your doorsteps!
2016-2017 was very fruitful in terms of good practice exchange and experiences from the whole of Europe. This upcoming year promesses to unravel and develop even more exchanges and cooperation!
The Youth Regional Network – End 2017
Created by the Assembly of European Regions, the Youth Regional Network (YRN) is a platform of regional-level youth parliaments, councils and organisations from wider Europe. YRN provides a truly unique forum giving young people from diverse regions a collective voice on the European stage while introducing a European dimension to youth policy.
For 2-4 days, your region will get the chance to welcome the AER Youth Regional Network General Assembly and Plenary. An excellent opportunity to exchange with engaged youth on current policies and challenges.
You can check out last year’s YRN Assembly in Vojvodina, Serbia.
Spring and Autumn Committees’ Plenaries – 2018
The Spring and Autumn Plenaries gather the three committees of the Assembly of European Regions. Twice a year, they gather for 2-3 days to make a point on the work achieved and their future action plans. The events bring about crucial themes in European regions current affairs.
