The European Week of Regions and Cities

The European Week of Regions and Cities

The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance. This year the event is virtual happening over three weeks.

The first week (5-10 October) “Let’s build the future together” out of three of this year’s #EURegionsWeek is dedicated to the thematic cluster Empowering Citizens. Check out the online programme and discover interesting working sessions on topics ranging from e-democracy, co-creation in public services, entrepreneurship and many more.

The second week (12-16 October) is dedicated to the thematic cluster Cohesion and Cooperation. This week includes the highest number of working sessions, together with all the political highlights.
