Doubling the number of kilometres cycled in Europe by 2030 is an ambitious target, and regions and cities will be right at the forefront of making this a reality. Promoting the use of bikes needs investment in better cycling infrastructure but also more incentives for citizens to use their bikes for safe, accessible and sustainable travel that is good for their health and for the environment. Getting this right could help create millions of jobs in everything from manufacturing and tourism to the retail, health and sports sector. Watch these stories from Milan (Italy), West Pomerania (Poland), Abruzzo (Italy), Oulu (Finland), Flandes (Belgium), and Västra Götaland (Sweden).

The second advanced Module of the Community Energy Academy was hosted at Community Conversations, the flagship program of the Sustainable and Just Cities Platform! What role can ecovillages play in fostering energy citizenship and speeding up the energy transition? How does (or could) the collaboration between ecovillages and local governments work? How does this affect their work? The collaboration with local governments plays a crucial role in fostering and broadening the impact of community-led initiatives. It also enhances and strengthens a sense of community and local ownership, supporting the development of tailored solutions and, more generally, is key to building trust in local authorities. The goals of this session were to: i) provide an understanding of the importance of the collaboration between community-led initiatives and local governments, ii) explore how this collaboration can foster the achievement of sustainability goals and, iii) investigate how this can contribute to the emergence and mainstreaming of energy citizenship.

The 3rd Plenary Meeting of the European Community of Practice on Partnership occurred on February 8, 2024. Partnership is a fundamental principle of EU’s shared management funds at all levels of their implementation. It helps to bring the EU closer to citizens by involving local and regional authorities, civil society, environmental and social partners, as well as non-governmental organizations in the design and implementation of investment projects. We need strong partnerships to ensure our investments are more inclusive, more transparent, and that truly meet people’s needs and interests. The European Community of Practice on Partnership (ECoPP) was established to facilitate the exchange of good practices on applying the partnership principle and to further improve the quality of partnership in the implementation of the EU funds. It brings together more than 150 organizations and authorities from across all the EU. The ECoPP has played a key role in proposing practical solutions to effectively engage stakeholders in the design, implementation, and evaluation of programs and projects.

She has a background as a sociologist and researches and teaches about the impact of technology on entrepreneurship.  In this episode In our daily lives, our behaviors are guided by norms as well as by ethics, through sets of principles that define what is acceptable or unacceptable, besides the purely legal perspective. Deviating from these codes implies consequences. But what about the digital world? Individuals and companies may not necessarily set out to engage in deliberate unethical behaviors or outcomes. Rather, we observe that, when it comes to ethics, processes in the digital world may contribute to unethical behaviors. Does tech reproduce or even exacerbate discrimination and inequality? How can digital ethics help shaping the online world, giving guidance about what actions are the right thing do to? This is what we want to explore with our guest Andreea Gorbatai, associate professor at Vlerick Business School, teacher and researcher about the impact of technology on entrepreneurship.

A sound democracy can only function well if citizens can obtain proper information on public matters, if they can understand them and of course, if they can deliberate about them, if social media provide citizens with new opportunities to access information, enable them to express their opinions and to participate in democratic processes. But we know it, social media can also undermine democracy by distorting information, promoting false stories and facilitating political manipulation.

It is one of the major concerns of democratic countries. Behind false news or fake news, strategies are often articulated to manipulate public opinion and erode the stability of states and their institutions. Hoaxes and disinformation have long been a global threat to freedom and democracy but the development and widespread use of digital media allow for it to spread even more quickly, making disinformation a more pressing problem. What are the key communication tools in the fight against disinformation and the approaches we can take? These are the things that we will explore in this episode with our guest, Guillaume Kuster, founder of Check First, a Finnish software and methodologies start-up that helps journalists, citizens and policy makers fight disinformation all around the globe.

About the podcastThe EuroPCom podcast series on public communication is produced by the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) in close cooperation with the EuroPCom partners.Host Evi Kiorri, Journalist | Multimedia Producer | Podcaster Guest Cato Waeterloos is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Media Studies at KU Leuven and at the research group for Media, Innovation and Communication Technologie at UGent. Her main research interests include different aspects of the interaction between new media and citizens’ civic and political participation.  In this episode From schooling and education to health and well-being to administration and political engagement, digital technology is increasingly intertwined with everyday life. It has transformed the ways in which we interact, relate to others, and access information. It now also offers new means for citizens to contribute to shaping political debate and drive real world change. Petition platforms, e-voting and other online tools expand opportunities to directly participate in civil society action and in democratic processes more broadly. But do these tools really have the potential to reinvigorate a more ‘citizen-powered’ democracy? Can people have a more direct influence on democratic processes? And what would be a strategy for engaging youth in local policymaking? This is what we want to explore with our guest Cato Waeterloos, postdoctoral researcher on interaction between new media and citizens’ civic and political participation at KU Leuven and UGent.

In this episode of Stories from the Regions, we explore a unique animal sanctuary in the Northern of Germany, where old and endangered breeds of farm animals are bred and protected. To demonstrate the relevancy importance of old farm animal breeds as cultural heritage and for ecological pasture cultivation, the sanctuary built a new visitors’ centre. In the “Domesticaneum”, as the centre was named, illustrates the history of our farm animals and their meaning for the presence and the future are graphically demonstrated.

How can regions and cities drive progress on the SDGs in an environment of increasing cost-of-living, high energy prices and precarious food security? We are delighted to launch the OECD-SDSN policy paper on localising the SDGs in a changing landscape, drawing on the results of a global survey jointly conducted by the OECD, the SDSN and the CoR. Join us to find out more! The Covid-19 pandemic, persistent inflation, soaring energy prices and a projected slowdown in GDP growth have placed roadblocks on the path to achieving the SDGs. Progress is falling short on almost 50% of the SDG targets, and 37% of SDG targets are either stagnating or regressing, including on key targets such as those related to poverty alleviation, hunger eradication and climate action. As part of the OECD Programme A Territorial Approach to the SDGs, this webinar will take stock of major strides that cities and regions have achieved to localise the SDGs. Delving into key policy areas affected by recent crises, the discussion will explore how the SDGs can serve as a powerful tool to counteract the adverse impacts on the cost-of-living, energy affordability and food security.

To underline the needs of the border regions and their citizens, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has just launched the European Cross-Border Platform (ECBP), the successor of the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) Platform, which aims to gather all actors in cross-border cooperation from border cities and regions to EGTCs and Euroregions. The newly established Platform aims to create a new place for cross-border stakeholders to meet and discuss border communities' unique circumstances and needs, allowing them to engage with the EU institutions through the European Committee of the Regions. The CoR continues its work with the EGTCs as it has and will continue to support the existing EGTCs and those in creation. EGTC meetings will continue to be organised yearly, with the next one on 20 September in Luxembourg. The work on EGTCs will be an integral part of the work of the new Platform, and consequently, all the EGTCs are invited to participate in it. There is no need for EGTCs to subscribe to the new platform. Follow us on: https://cor.europa.eu/en/our-work/Pages/egtc.aspx https://dyn.cor.europa.eu/ECBP/

The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) supports EU Member States and accession countries by offering financial support after severe natural disasters and, since 2020, major health emergencies. The EUSF was set up to respond to major natural disasters and express European solidarity to disaster-stricken regions within Europe. The Fund was created as a reaction to the severe floods in Central Europe in the summer of 2002. Since then, it has become one of the main EU instruments for post-disaster recovery and an expression of EU solidarity. This video highlights the achievements of the Fund and provides information about the types of operations the assistance can support.

The Local Democracy Agency Zavidovići is the laureate of the Mayor Pawel Adamowicz Award 2023, for its assistance to thousand​​​s of refugees and in recognition of its contribution to the promotion of local democracy, non-discrimination, non-violent discourse and integration. The association, which was created during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is an example of how the determination to defend human rights must involve civil society, local and international authorities and all citizens. It was founded to honour and build on the legacy of 3 pacifists from Brescia who were kidnapped and killed in 1993, while bringing humanitarian aid to Zavidovići, in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Through its efforts to promote the acceptance and inclusion of the Other, whoever they are and from whatever country they come from, the ADL invests in the development of a resilient, welcoming and inclusive community. The award was created in honour of Mayor Paweł Adamowicz of Gdańsk, who was murdered in January 2019 while fulfilling his public duties. The award was jointly set by the city of Gdańsk, of which Mr Adamowicz was mayor for 20 years, by the International Cities of Refuge Network (ICORN) and by the European Committee of the Regions, of which he was a member. The award promotes the legacy of Mayor Adamowicz in defending democracy from the local level, and it serves as a tribute to and recognition for all those who act with courage and integrity against intolerance, radicalisation, hate speech, oppression and xenophobia. The Mayor Paweł Adamowicz Award Ceremony will take place on 19 March in Mons, in Belgium, at the 10th European Summit of Regions and Cities.

Registrazione dell'evento Scegliere il Servizio Civile Universale: un dialogo sulle opportunità di impiego dei giovani in Italia, tenutosi il 6 febbraio 2024, a Trento & online. Il Servizio Civile Universale (SCU) ha un potenziale immenso per l'economia e la società italiana. L'approccio volontario per i giovani trasforma l'idea convenzionale di un servizio obbligatorio, in Italia in vigore dagli anni '60 al 2005, in una piattaforma reciprocamente vantaggiosa per la crescita personale e il progresso della comunità. Si tratta di un approccio inclusivo che incoraggia tutti i cittadini idonei a contribuire attivamente allo sviluppo dell’Italia. Per quanto riguarda i giovani, è dimostrato che il loro coinvolgimento in vari settori come la sanità, l'istruzione, le infrastrutture e le iniziative ambientali, non solo rafforza le comunità di provenienza, ma fornisce anche competenze ed esperienze preziose. È stato anche dimostrato che questa esposizione, unita alle opportunità di formazione e sviluppo, aumenta la prospettiva di occupazione al termine del servizio. Inoltre, colmando le lacune critiche nei servizi pubblici, il servizio civile universale promuove la stabilità e la crescita economica. L'evento è organizzato nell'ambito del progetto sostenuto dalla Commissione Europea e il suo Technical Support Instrument (TSI) rivolto al Supporto alla progettazione e all'attuazione del progetto di servizio civile universale PNRR, per sbloccare le opportunità di impiego dei giovani. Il progetto mira ad ampliare la visione del SCU perseguendo obiettivi sia di volontariato che di occupabilità. I rapporti sviluppati dall'OCSE esaminano la legislazione esistente e identificano le procedure, i processi e gli ostacoli amministrativi per tutte le parti interessate, proponendo riforme e soluzioni per rendere il SCU più efficace ed efficiente. Il progetto è finanziato dall'Unione europea attraverso lo Strumento di NextGenerationEU e attuato dall'OCSE, in collaborazione con la Direzione generale per il sostegno alle riforme strutturali della Commissione europea.

The river Minho is a natural border between the north of Portugal and the region of Galicia in Spain. The river’s cross-border territory, which is comprised of natural spaces with a rich biodiversity and environment, is jointly managed by the two countries. However, it has been difficult to achieve smooth cross-border cooperation in this region in terms of management of these areas. National differences in the administration of these areas and a lack of coordination prevent the managing authorities from fully protecting and promoting these shared natural spaces.

The Øresund agreement regulates taxation matters regarding work commutes between Denmark and Sweden since 2003. Yet, new crucial aspects of cross-border commuters are not included in the legislation. Rules regarding pension systems, taxation and reporting obligations are also not harmonised, which creates unnecessary administrative costs and increases the risk of double taxation for cross-border workers. As a result, companies are discouraged to seek for skilled workers from the cross-border region.

The German social security system provides wage replacement benefits which also apply to parents while they care for their sick children. In border regions, however, children’s sick pay is hardly ever made use of, particularly for those living in the Netherlands but working in Germany. In this case, different national requirements for proof of illness and a lack of knowledge of this benefit prevent cross-border workers from applying for such benefits.

Diverse forms of citizen involvement and engagement in energy projects are already surging across the EU, including many energy poverty alleviation activities within communities. The upcoming European elections are a good opportunity to highlight innovative solutions that could help mainstream social inclusion in the energy transition in a more coherent and comprehensive way. This hybrid event, co-organised by ICLEI Europe and the Jacques Delors Institute, gathered input from the Sun4All and EnergyPROSPECTS projects, as well as from a variety of stakeholders, to set the scene for an inclusive and democratic European Green Deal 2.0.

L'IDMAR è il più grande telescopio sottomarino d'Europa, sostenuto dalla politica di coesione dell'UE con circa 19 milioni di euro. Il suo scopo è quello di potenziare le infrastrutture di ricerca marina in Sicilia. I suoi nodi sferici sottomarini sono in grado di guardare e ascoltare ciò che accade nel Mediterraneo, trasmettendo informazioni preziose in tempo reale. IDMAR non solo può illuminarci sulla vita marina sottomarina, ma può anche aiutare i ricercatori a fotografare e mappare le zone sismiche e a scoprire l'origine dei raggi cosmici.

Dijon, along with the Finnish city of Turku, was selected as a pilot for the European RESPONSE programme, which brings together 53 private and public partners from 13 countries. With its own budget of €23 million, including €7.4 million in Dijon, it forms a part of the €80 billion pan-European programme ‘Horizon 2020: Smart Cities & Communities’. The Positive Energy District of Fontaine D'Ouche in Dijon is an example of best practice in terms of energy savings with unprecedented thermal renovation through installation of solar panels and improvement of the district heating networks. While most of the Positive Energy Districts are implemented in new or recent neighbourhoods, where the population is rather well off and already aware of climate change, a project in Dijon, part of the H2020RESPONSE project, implements a Positive Energy District in a deprived area with social housing. The Positive Energy District of Fontaine D'Ouche is the biggest operation of self-consumption in France. The project is a collective, shared experience where everyone can contribute and inhabitants take ownership of the project. They use renewable, locally produced energy and their behaviour in energy use has a direct impact at the level of the neighbourhood, thus participating in the energy transition. The Response project in Dijon - the Positive Energy District of Fontaine D'Ouche – is fully in line with Dijon vision for energy transition and climate neutrality: Dijon Metropolis (DM) is highly committed to achieve the necessary energy transition and become carbon neutral by 2050.

With more than USD 1.57 trillion of federal funding committed over ten years, the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill provide an opportunity to close the infrastructure investment gap in the United States. Maximising the long-term benefits from this funding – from job creation to improving the quality of life to addressing geographic divides – will require scaling up the capacity for inclusive investment at all levels of government. Many OECD countries have faced similar challenges and have developed new approaches that the United States can learn from. This webinar will draw on a new OECD policy brief and international case studies to highlight lessons that can help US state and local actors make the most of this historic opportunity.

The Ukrainian city of Lviv has turned into a humanitarian hub, in which people fleeing the war are finding refuge. Lviv now hosts more than 150,000 internally displaced people and has treated over 50,000 casualties. The unbroken centre was created to provide emergency & long-term care for people suffering life-changing injuries. It includes physical & psychological support, reconstructive surgery, orthopaedics & robotic prosthetics, and a full rehabilitation eco-system. The European Union supports the project with €19,6 million for the construction of social housing for the patients. Lviv can also count on partnerships at local level with the cities of Gdańsk, Warsaw, Vilnius, and Freiburg. EU cities & regions commit to long-term support to Ukrainian local & regional authorities. Peer-to-peer cooperation is crucial to help them continue reconstruction and develop lasting recovery. #WeStandWithUkraine
