We are pleased to announce that the registration for the 2017 European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek 2017) is open (until 27th September 2017).

As part the 15th European Week of Regions and Cities (9-12 October 2017), there will be over 130 free workshops, networking events and project visits organised in Brussels. Under the 2017 title 'Regions and cities working for a better future’ the programme will tackle three main themes:  

  1. Building resilient regions and cities – #LocalResilience;
  2. Regions and cities as change agents – #TakeAction;
  3. Sharing knowledge to deliver results – #SharingKnowledge.
