Regional Workshop 

24th September 2018, IBZ St. Marienthal

Terms like "summer heat", "flooding" or "species extinction" are dominating our daily news. They are showing the impacts of ongoing climate change for peoples' health and well-being, biodiversity and sustainable use of our natural capital. To develop intelligent and sustainable solutions to cope with climate change  is the largest challenge of the 21th century.

With the Green Infrastructure Strategy and the Concept of Ecosystem Services the European Union has developed first strategic approaches which need to be concretized and implemented on regional and local level. The project MaGICLandscapes wants to find ideas and solutions to improve the green infrastructure resource so that people in the tri-border area Czech Republic, Germany and Poland can best benefit from it.

The workshop in Ostritz highlights the concept of green infrastructure and it's (public) benefits. Regional and local stakeholders are welcome to exchange their ideas and knowledge of how to enhance the existing green infrastructure and to elaborate common ideas and strategies for the tri-border area Czech Republic, Germany and Poland.

The event is targeted at community representatives, regional and local administrations, nature and landscape conservation institutions, associations, universities and research institutions.

Airport Access: Key to Green Mobility

Lunch meeting hosted by MEP Maria Grapini

In the framework of the Interreg Central Europe project LAirA (Landside Airport Accessibility), MEP Maria Grapini and the Airport Regions Conference are delighted to invite you to a light lunch meeting on the topic of airport access.

The meeting will take place on 25 September 2018, at the European Parliament, Altiero Spinelli building, room A3G3, between 12:30 and 14:00. 

Airports are assets and transnational transport gateways for citizens. Improving surface access to airports is a crucial aspect on handling expected air traffic growth that will put much pressure on Europe's airports and the transport network that links the airports with the city centres and their hinterland. 

LAirA project addresses the multimodal, smart and low carbon mobility integration of airports in the mobility systems of urban areas. The project focuses in particular on building capacities of local and regional authorities and airports, to jointly plan and implement low carbon mobility solutions in a transnational and comprehensive approach.

This meeting will bring together leading stakeholders from the European research community, and also European policy-makers, local and regional authorities, airports and infrastructure providers. It will be a unique opportunity to exchange best practice and contribute together to a cleaner and more innovative mobility system. We hope you could join us on that occasion. 

Please find more practical information and registration form on Eventbrite. 

Should you have any questions, please contact us at info@airportreigons.org.

#cooperationiscentral: Why central Europe needs cooperation more than ever

9 October 2018 |European Week of Regions and Cities

The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is an annual Brussels-based event in which officials from regional and urban administrations, as well as experts and academics, exchange good practices and know-how in the field of regional and urban development.

In this half-hour session, our speaker will talk about the need for transnational cooperation in central Europe. When solidarity is fading and calls for lower integration are growing, we believe #cooperationiscentral. Regions and cities are more efficient and more competitive when they work together beyond borders. Citizens and companies profit from new and better services. 

Based on evidence from a new impact study you will hear why Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE is a bulwark of cooperation at the heart of Europe. Concrete stories will illustrate what our speaker has to say.

Join the talk and share with us on social media why #cooperationiscentral for you.
