Connecting the Dots for a Smarter and Greener Mediterranean

The 21st of November marked the beginning of the pivotal event in Ljubljana Connecting the dots: The path to a smarter and greener Mediterranean, organised by the Joint Secretariat of the Interreg Euro-MED Programme. With 214 participants in person and 160 online, this gathering ignited discussions on the future of governance in the Mediterranean region.


The initial day focused on governance projects, showcasing results from the previous programming period that hold relevant for integration into the new Missions. The discussions emphasised the necessity for enhanced cooperation not only within the programme but also with external initiatives beyond the Interreg sphere.


The second day extended the conversations initiated the previous day, featuring workshops organised by the four Interreg governance Missions: strengthening an innovative sustainable economy; protecting, restoring, and valorising the natural environment and heritage; promoting green living areas; and enhancing sustainable tourism. The Natural Heritage Mission gathered with its partners and associated partners to review the main activities and objectives to be accomplished in the coming years.
