The EUWRC is the annual event where cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.
Given the exceptional situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 18th edition of the EU Weeks of Regions and Cities spreads over 3 consecutive weeks in October, each dedicated to one timely topic:
- 5-9 October: Empowering Citizens
- 12-16 October: Cohesion and cooperation
- 19-22 October: Green Europe, in cooperation with the Green Week
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related health and safety measures, the majority of the 500 sessions will be in fully digital format. Among the exceptions are key events and workshops requiring interpretation, which are going to be organized in a hybrid format (online with a limited physical presence). Some events such as exhibitions and regional tastings can be either digital or physical.
