EURegionsWeek 2020, a record edition!
Under the slogan "Restart. Europe. Together", the 18th edition of the #EURegionsWeek had a record number of 12.000 participants. With an unprecedented presence of Commissioners, EU leaders, including the President of the European Commission and the President of the European Committee of the Regions.
The 2020 edition has marked a turning point for the event by going digital for the first time ever, with a rich programme spread over 3 weeks. The event focussed on three themes: Empowering citizens 5-9 Oct/ Cohesion and Cooperation 12-16 Oct / Green Europe 19-22 Oct. 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the political agenda at all levels, putting the crisis and its health, social and economic aspects, its impact on people and local communities, and possible EU measures for the recovery at the core of the public debate at the EURegionsWeek. Despite these uncertain times, the fully digital edition of the EURegionsWeek confirmed itself as the flagship political platform for engaging local and regional politicians with EU leaders.
Sessions, high level events and political debates are available as "video on demand" for a period of one year after the event on the Live &Replay.
