Interreg MED Piazza: where citizens and EU Institutions meet for the future of Europe

Experience a holistic and multi-stakeholder policymaking process through the participation in interactive activities focusing on strategies for a greener, smarter and more connected future for Europe.

As part of the programme of the European Week of Regions and Cities, Interreg MED offers the opportunity to experience a holistic and multi-stakeholder policymaking process through the participation in interactive activities, such as games and debates focusing on strategies for a greener, smarter and more connected future for Europe.

Citizens and EU Institutions meet at the “Interreg MED piazza” participatory lab to shape a more inclusive and sustainable future grounded on territorial cooperation projects on innovation, green and blue growth, tourism, urban transport, renewable energy and efficient buildings.

At this Piazza you will walk through four corners to experience the In­terreg MED holistic cooperation approach.

  • At the “Civic Parliament” you will experience a participatory decision-making process;
  • At the “Bar Terrace” you will exchange knowledge and information with ex­perts from the Interreg MED communities;
  • At our “Construction Site” you will experience a Lego Serious Play® creative and abstract activity with a certified trainer;
  • And finally, in the “Playground”, you will learn, through gamified activities designed by our Communities, strategic issues of sustainable lifestyle such as energy microgrids and mobility.

The session will count with the participation of relevant personalities such as Mrs Mercedes Bresso former MEP and President of the Piemonte Region; Mrs. Ana-Lisa Boni, Secretary General of EuroCities; Mr. Andrea Gnassi Major of Rimini, Jure Brizic Major of Preko, Agnès Rampal Member of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Regional Council; and Andy Deacon Policy Coordinator at Climate Alliance.
