Between 18 -19 March 2024, our President Nelu Neacsu, board member Jesmond Aquilina and faculty member Assoc. Prof. Georgi Biserov Nikolov participated at the 10th European Summit of Regions and Cities organised in Mons, in the Walloon Region of Belgium, We have discovered innovative ways for local authorities to boost citizen engagement and turnout in the upcoming EU elections.

It was an excellent opportunity to talk with our friends from Malta and Bulgaria and to expand our network.

We welcomed the summit declaration, which expresses the vision of Regions and Cities for the Future of Europe!

“Regions and cities must be heard when the next Strategic Agenda of the European Union, as well as the next political priorities of the European Commission, are being formulated. We call on European leaders to do more to ensure that all EU policies are anchored in the local and regional level, thus reinforcing the democratic legitimacy and efficiency of these policies. We must work together at all levels, where a real difference can be made, be it at European Union, national, regional or local levels. Together, regions and cities have the power to deliver a stronger, fairer and more resilient Europe.”
