Doesn’t time fly when we’re having fun? Well… right now we’re in the middle of a challenging project “Together for Cohesion: let’s rEUnite!” co-financed by DG Regio (Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy), which started in April 2019. We had some fun it’s true especially when we launched in June the communication campaign Together4Cohesion on occasion of AER General Assembly in Larnaca with a lot of positive vibes, balloons, and joyful audience from our member regions happy to discover what the project is about. But more than fun there was the cooperation and creative work of three important actors, AER as leading partner, mc Group as media partner and the local administration of 6 regions out of 5 different countries: Trento (IT), Csongrad (HU), Timis (RO), Alba (RO), Catalonia (ES) and Varazdin (HR). This ambitious team set up the goal of creating a comprehensive communication campaign in order to raise awareness of the benefits of cohesion policy projects and actions among regions, stakeholders and citizens and to turn them into active players of the campaign.
European Cohesion Calendar-subscribe your local event!
The project has an interesting and dynamic agenda, as in the time frame September 2019- March 2020, 15 local events are going to be organised in the above-mentioned regions. Out of all the pre-existing events that the regions have already planned to organise we selected the most suitable 15 events (3/country) that can be shaped for the aim of the campaign. The attendance of local events will make Together4Cohesion more personal and emotive as the citizens and the key stakeholders identified are going to be reached directly with this occasion. These actions are going to be the flagship events of the European Cohesion Calendar which is a dynamic timetable with initiatives related to cohesion policy, organised all over Europe. This calendar is an important output of the project that is going to bring more visibility within the website of the project, of the cohesion related events.
We invite regions and different organisations and institutions to send us their events with topics related to cohesion policy to be included in the calendar.
Please submit the European Cohesion Calendar form and don’t miss the opportunity if you want to give visibility to your local events in the on-line calendar!
