In times without conflict, this is often taken for granted, but in times of crisis the vulnerabilities of the global system also become apparent. While prices for logistics, raw materials and energy have risen in recent years for various reasons, such as natural or deliberate shortages in the raw materials sector or restrictions in freight traffic, the supply of Europe and large parts of the world with energy and also food is now in danger. Is Europe too dependent? Did diversification not work? What lessons do we need to learn from the current crisis? Would a reduction in dependence on non-European suppliers strengthen the autonomy of our continent and would that be feasible at all, given all the technical progress and the great need for raw materials and energy?

European Committee o...
Cohesion policy remains a crucial tool to keep our Union together, bringing progress and wellbeing right across Eu- rope. It was critical in responding almost immediately to the COVID-19 crisis, by providing all regions and cities in the EU with support to boost job creation, competitiveness, economic growth, sustainable development, and citizens’ quality of life. While support under cohesion policy built on the participation of LRAs, the recovery plans developed after the COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately tended to recentralise the investment policies at European level. The 2022 edition of the EU Annual Report on the State of Regions and Cities explores the impacts of these and other challenges on European local realities, and analyses the tools that the EU can mobilise to ensure that a fair and equal social and economic recovery is achieved.

Find here the recording of the session "Is Regional the new Organic?" 25th October 2022 | Salzburg Congress KEYNOTE Norbert Totschnig, Federal Minister for Agriculture, Regions and Tourism (Austria) PANEL Irene Neumann-Hartberger, Member of the Parliament, Chairwoman of the Working Group of Women in Agriculture (Austria) Stefan Richter, Baker, Entrepreneur and lecturer in field of food and nutrition (Germany) Oliver Sitar. Head Governance Agricultural and Food Karkets, Directorate-General Agriculture in the European Commission Simone Schmiedtbauer, Farmer, Member of the European Parliament, Member of the Committee fpr Agriculture and Rural Development (Austria) Josef Schwaiger, State Councilor for griculture, forestry and water management, spatial planning and human resources of Salzburg Kurt Weinberger,Chairman of the Board of Hagelversicherung AG (Austria) MODERATION Michael Kretz, Managing Director Bezirksblätter Salzburg Due to the corona pandemic, the importance of the regional has increased considerably, whether it is regional tourism or the food that comes from the immediate region. When it comes to food in particular, the question arises as to whether organic food is automatically a better choice than regional products. According to various criteria, the latter can even bring a whole range of advantages. Tomatoes with an organic seal from far away abroad do not always have to be better for health and the environment than tomatoes from the surrounding region. Even smaller regional companies often produce very naturally and according to ecological principles without an organic seal. Anyone who buys directly from the producer can find out about the production conditions personally. The popularity of farm shops and farmers' markets increased dramatically during the Corona period, and regional shopping enables greater and direct transparency. Locally sourced food travels much shorter distances, which uses less energy and contributes to a reduced carbon footprint. Fresh products from outdoor cultivation are much more climate-friendly than those produced in the greenhouse. After all, by buying regional food, you strengthen the producers in the region and thus the entire region itself. So can you say: regional equals organic? There are different answers to this. Some say: organic is better for animal products and cereals, while seasonal and regional fruit and vegetables are preferable. The term "regional" is not clearly defined. There will be an exciting discussion about this and many other questions in this context in this panel.

Editor in chief, KURIER Peace within the community, easy travel, free movement of goods and prosperity, the EU has undoubtedly brought many good things to its citizens. For about a decade, however, the crises within the EU and in its neighborhood have been increasing again. Euroscepticism, Europe-bashing and a loss of European identity are on the rise. Debt crisis, discussion about migration, consequences of Brexit, increase in national populism, threat to the rule of law, Covid pandemic, climate change, paralyzed enlargement policy and finally the terrible war against Ukraine are just a few of the buzzwords on the current situation in the EU. In addition, the perceived "bureaucracy of the EU" makes it inaccessible, opaque, undemocratic, over-regulated and bureaucratic for many. The ability to act within the EU due to dwindling solidarity and increasing vetoes also leaves a lot to be desired. The call for reforms, for a new, different Europe, is getting louder. On the other hand, as in the Covid crisis, the EU was able to quickly adopt a joint development program "Next Generation EU" with 750 billion euros. In any case, the outbreak of war in the Ukraine marked a turning point for the whole of Europe. In this opening dialogue, high-ranking representatives of the EU, national governments of various European countries and academic experts will address the question of whether the European Union in its current constitution is able to survive all of these crises largely unscathed and find a solution to supply Find all information on the 18th Salzburg Europe Summit 2022 here: www.salzburg-europe-summit.eu Video: ZUPMedia | Florian Zöchling - www.zup-media.at/

Cities and regions worldwide are taking over political leadership at COP27 climate talks as national governments are failing to reach any meaningful agreement. As echoed in the latest IPCC report, local and regional governments have a growing role in delivering climate action. However, subnational governments – unified under the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) Constituency to the United Nations – still lack a formal role in global climate negotiations and in the implementation of the Paris agreement. Reinforcing multi-level cooperation, direct funds and technical assistance for subnational governments and a global system to collect and monitor cities’ and regions’ carbon emission reductions are amongst the key claims subnational governments are fighting for at COP27. ​​ The delegation of the European Committeee of the Regions reinforced these claims at the COP27.

18th meeting of the Spatial Productivity Lab at the OECD Trento Centre on "Productivity and resilience in regions and cities", held in virtual format on 6 Dec. 2022. Regional economic resilience is the ability of places to withstand, recover and to reorganise in response to a negative shock. Resilience can be thought of as a short-term characteristic, for example employment performance during a specific crisis, or as a long-term phenomenon, when a lagging place emerges over time as a centre of high productivity and economic prosperity. What factors are linked to greater economic resilience both short-term and long-term? How can places strengthen their resilience? The webinar offered some answers drawing on academic research and practical examples of places that “turned-around”.

For example, in Victoria, Australia, Main Streets account for 12% of the state’s jobs and generate over AUD 50 billion in economic value annually. However, across the OECD these “hearts” of communities are facing increasing pressures, as a result of digitalisation, demographic change, and short-term shocks, such as COVID-19 and inflation.

The economic upswing and the opportunities for European companies to invest and develop are also decisive for the positive development of the region.

Nova Gorica (Slovenia) and Gorizia (Italy) are twin cities at the Italian-Slovenian border with an eventful past. From 1945 to 1947, the border between the cities was closed and even afterwards there was an Iron Curtain. When Slovenia joined the EU in 2004, the cross-border city Gorizia- Nova Gorica became a symbol for EU enlargement. Today, a European project called Isonzo-Soča cross-border park with cross-border bike lanes is reinforcing the links between the cities. Throughout the years, the cities have become a symbol of cross-border cooperation. Together with Chemnitz, the twin cities will be the European Capitals of Culture in 2025.

Eurocities
-- ​ While the European Union continues to highlight the need to transition to a climate neutral society, cities struggle to finance the measures to be implemented. This situation has been aggravated by the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, which has created an energy crisis that is not only jeopardising our efforts of becoming climate neutral, but also increasing the inequalities in our cities. In this line, Eurocities has created a Climate Neutral and Just Transition Group that will aim at providing a space for discussion and exchange to our cities. The goal is for municipalities to be able to express the main concerns and challenges they are facing and find solutions through dialogue. From Eurocities, we will also invite different guest speakers every session that will be able to provide some insights and advise on how to best tackle the challenges. After having launched a survey to better understand the needs of our members, the first session will be devoted to understanding the different options to finance a green and just transition. By watching this recording you will: - dive deeper into the different possibilities for cities to access financing to ensure a sustainable transformation of their territories - hear some of the challenges our members are going through - hear some personalised advice from our special guest speakers (EIB, Bankers without Boundaries, ELTI)

What moves European youth? In principle, young people in Europe have more opportunities than almost any generation before: a wide range of educational opportunities or easier and cheaper travel seem to know almost no boundaries. Nevertheless, the younger generation is also concerned with many things: climate change, precarious working conditions, the pressure of expectations or a general lack of prospects in their home countries, but of course also the fundamental question of peace in Europe, which has so far seemed secure. In the panel "We are Europe - young people discuss their future", young people from European countries, especially those that are not yet members of the EU, will show what concerns them, what worries them, but also what motivates them. What do you expect from the European Union and what from politics in your home country? Have their chances gotten worse or better over the years? What do they wish for themselves and the future of their generation. What opportunities do you see to help shape politics?

The fourth CINTRAN capacity building event for the coal+ regions provided an expert overview of the inventory of coping strategies and what it means for communities and governments. The event was aimed at practitioners across the coal+ regions in Europe. Within this interactive webinar, participants got an expert overview of the inventory of coping strategies and what it means for numerous European coal+ regions. After a keynote speech by Marie Claire Brisbois (University of Sussex), the three panelists reflected on their own experiences in Estonia, Slovakia, and Germany bottom-up resistance towards top-down initiatives can both delay or enhance the energy transition. The idea is to understand better how coal+ regions’ governments steer the way through the just transition, and how such decisions can both affect their communities and provide opportunities to shape of their own transition.

The attitude of the EU member states to this question varies. Especially with regard to the accession processes of the six Western Balkan countries, which have been dragging on for many years. New opportunities beyond full membership to participate in joint programs such as in the common foreign, security and defense policy as well as in the areas of research, energy, transport or climate protection are being discussed. In the spirit of a "New Enlargement", a model is to be found that enables the countries to be closely linked to the European Union even before full membership. In any case, there is agreement that the three candidate countries will continue to consistently pursue the fulfillment of the criteria for democracy, human rights and the rule of law, as well as stepping up the fight against corruption. In this IRE forum we can expect an exciting discussion of the current situation between representatives of the European Commission, the European Parliament and high representatives of Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova and Georgia.
