The Irish Regions European Office and the Northern and Western Regional Assembly are coming together to present how EU Cohesion Policy funding (European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) programmes) can benefit local communities and on the other hand, how local communities can participate in a duologue with the EU. There will be an opportunity to hear from the European Movement Ireland on tools for citizens’ engagement in the Conference on the Future of Europe.
This seminar is funded by the Communicating Europe Initiative, managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, aimed at deepening public awareness of the role the EU plays in our daily lives and at improving the quality and accessibility of public information on European issues, particularly at regional or national level. This event will also be held for the Eastern and Midlands Regional Assembly (EMRA) and the Southern Regional Assembly (SRA).
Join us on 8th October from 9:30AM (Irish time) to hear about how the EU delivers for local communities and how citizen engagement influences EU policy-making. We will hear from Irish MEPs and Committee of the Regions Members about how EU funding delivers on the ground, and how to ensure that the public view is taken on board when it comes to the Future of Europe.
