The EU’s assembly of regions and cities opened its Brussels premises on 4 May to bring citizens together with regional and local elected politicians. Interactive stands and activities will offer the chance to get to know more about the Committee of the Regions’ role and commitment to narrowing the distance between the EU and its local communities. To mark the day – and the Committee’s 30th anniversary – there will be a festival of regions and cities with tastings, quiz games and a digital show, providing an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of our territories.

Our academy president visited the European institutions, a great opportunity to meet and talk with the representatives of Budapesta, Brastislava, Valencia, Ukraine and Harghita County.
