Learning across macro-regions

So far, four EU macro-regional strategies have been adopted. They cover different parts of Europe, but they are all based on the same principles and ideas, and often deal with similar problems and challenges. Thus, exchange across the regions is important and fruitful, as the two workshops “Message in a bottle: communication across macro-regional strategies” and a joint kick-off meeting to promote the role of social policies in the macro-regional context prove. The workshops were organised in September by Interact Programme.

Most of us have probably thought about the question in the title. For this reason, "Let’s communicate!" project wanted to address this particular question in one of the seminars at the EUSBSR Annual Forum. The seminar highlighted some common challenges stakeholders had identified in a survey conducted by the project and aimed at showing through concrete examples that challenges can be solved. In addition, the seminar was an opportunity to plan the communications of the upcoming 10th Anniversary of the EUSBSR.

Macro-regional communications with a joint view

I had a great privilege to travel to sunny Slovenia last month to take part in “EU Macroregional Strategies Conference on Media and Communication – Know Thy Neighbour”. The event was about exchanging experiences, learning from good practices and discussing how to improve the visibility of the EU macro-regional strategies (MRS). Participants were representatives of media, journalists, communication experts, academia and interested stakeholders. Can you imagine that this was the first time that communication people from all four macro-regional strategies met to discuss their work!
