Our Mission partners met in Barcelona in person last week from 7th till 9th of June. The aim of the two governance project partners meetings, the Thematic Community and Institutional Dialogue, was to discuss the joint workplan, ongoing and future activities and potential challenges. More importantly, we used the opportunity to meet each other in person as we will be collaborating for the next 7 years!
We dedicated the first day to the approval of the joint workplan and the tasks division per each Working Package (Reuse, Transfer and Coordination). The Communication aspects were considered throughout the whole meeting.
We started the second day with the preparations for the Interreg Euro-MED event that will take place in Slovenia on 21st and 22nd of November. We are planning to organise a side event, so stay tuned for more details! The second day ended with each governance project´s Steering Committee meeting.
On the last day we wanted to engage more with our Associated Partners, so they participated in a hybrid event in which we presented our Mission, the expected roles and the level of engagement of Associated Partners.
You can read more on this event here.
Additionally, during the hybrid event we launched the coastal erosion campaign as part of the “SOLVE the CHALLENGE” days. You can also join our campaign by witnessing coastal erosion signs across the Mediterranean, taking photo and sending it to our Facebook or Instagram profile, where you can get more details on the campaign. In the afternoon, all the in-person participants headed to the Maresme County where one of the Associated Partners, Consell Comarcal del Maresme, informed about METACC project developing the strategic lines for climate change mitigation and adaptation among its 30 Municipalities. We also visited Mataró coastal area, witnessing the impacts of coastal erosion and discussing the necessity for effective policies aiming to slow down or prevent the problem.
We would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to our hosts MedCities, CREAF and the Institute of Catalan Studies!
