Dear members, partners and friends,
The EAR-AER objective of promoting regional action as a tool for employment, as well as creating wealth and trust for its long-term members and partners, is now more relevant than ever. Therefore, the year 2021, the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, meant for our academy a year of manifestation of solidarity and involvement in social projects.
Now, our thoughts are moving towards the future, towards the year 2022, which we want as the year of European reconstruction, the year of development, the year of performance in all aspects. We expect you to enjoy together a path of respect and solidarity, full of achievements, wealth, and value, with new dimensions approached in events, projects, and dreams.
We are thanking all of you and in particular the Government of Flanders for the continued financial support. We hope that in 2022 it will be possible again to organise fact-finding missions to Moldova, North Macedonia, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine, among others, and to participate in the events organised by our members or partners, such as the 2nd Forum on Local and Regional Economic Development in Ankara, Turkey and Western Balkans Forum for Regional and Local Economic Development in Vlore, Albania. Furthermore, we look forward to participating in the BEF annual event in North Macedonia, to the summer school in Bucharest and the DigitalNerds Contest- Edition 2022 event in Brasov and to finalise the Erasmus+ project “European Youth Alliance For Green Future” with our partners: Asociatia E-Civis, ZIP Institute and World Academy for Local Government and Democracy.
We wish you Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year 2022!
