The European Commission together with the European Committee of the Regions will organize (online) the European Week of Regions and Cities (Cities #EURegionsWeek) from 11th to 14th of October 2021.
This year's programme is focused on the capacity of the EU and of national and regional governments to support European citizens and their local communities with practical measures and public policies aimed at investing in a fairer, greener and more digital future for recovery.
Exchanges and discussions will focus on four themes: Cohesion, Green transition, Digital transition, Citizens' engagement.
The European Week of Regions and Cities is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe, including politicians, administrators, experts and academics to promote policy learning and the exchange of good practice.
The #EURegionsWeek will also serve as a platform for fostering the ongoing debate on democracy and citizen’s engagement on the future of Europe.
