18th European Week of Regions and Cities


Coesione, cooperazione e ripartenza sono i temi della 18a Settimana europea delle regioni e delle città. Un appuntamento importante per discutere le sfide comuni per le regioni e le città europee e scambiare idee su possibili soluzioni riunendo rappresentanti politici, esperti e professionisti della politica regionale, organizzazioni della società civile del mondo accademico, delle istituzioni dell'UE e dei media. A causa delle difficoltà generate da Covid 19, tutti i lavori si svolgeranno online

Despite the difficulties generated by the COVID 19 pandemic, the #EURegionsWeek 2020 will offer to participants more than 500 digital working sessions to discover over three consecutive weeks in October, from 5-22 October, covering various topics.

Due to the security measures and sanitary situation caused by the pandemic, this year will be the first ever fully digital EURegionsWeek:

  • all working sessions will be organised virtually with no physical audience
  • the Key sessions of the EURegionsWeek 2020 – Political Opening, Political Closing, Citizens dialogues and High level debates will be streamed and broadcasted live
  • exhibitions will be replaced by virtual interactive exhibitions with virtual pitchs
  • EURegionstalks will be organised as a virtual session or will be pre-recorded and accessible online

This year, the European Week of Regions and Cities will spread over three consecutive weeks in October, each dedicated to one timely topic:

5-9 October: Empowering Citizens

12-16 October: Cohesion and cooperation

19-22 October: Green Europe, in cooperation with the Green Week


Language: english (en)

The registration is open from 27 August to 27 September 2020.
