Last 2nd May in the morning, just before the CoR Plenary Session, CECICN had an important meeting with Ms. Mercedes Bresso, CoR president. Represented by its president, Per Bodker Andersen, and officials from UBC, MOT and CAAC, this network of urban networks described their opinions on the future of territorial cooperation, highlighting macro-regions and EGTC’s.
CoR representatives agreed on the significance of territorial integrated initiatives, acknowledging both macroregions and EGTC’s as the most efficient tools. They also mentioned the necessity of bringing ideas and debate to the ground, organizing local events that would ensure ownership by the citizens.
CECICN also presented the 1st European Congress on Smart (territorial) Cooperation, inviting CoR to take an active part on it.
