UTH participated in the “MED for YOU – unfolding a strong narrative for policy change” event, in Athens, Greece, on the 24th of October.
MED for YOU premiered the first evidence of the Programme successful cooperation approach. We revealed how Interreg MED unique architecture has taken shape and produced concrete results little by little thus demonstrating its added value. Several stakeholders explained how they seized these results, made them theirs and integrated them in their policies, strategies, etc.
The results were presented around 2 questions directly linked to hot topics on the European Commission agenda but also to the objectives of the European cohesion policy: How to survive climate change, the Mediterranean way?-Which drivers for a sustainable and inclusive growth?
After the first act, participants had the chance to get behind the project scenes, enjoy a photo exhibitions of the rising stars.
In the second act of this event we attended a debate on post 2020 and the added value of European territorial cooperation in the Mediterranean. In light of the current and future landscape of the Mediterranean cooperation, we raised the question of the Interreg MED Programme positioning.
