    moderator is Carol Thomas

    Dear organisers, the moderator of the workshop will be Carol Thomas, NOT Annette Turmann. I uploaded her name as speaker, because I could not find an opportunity for adding a moderator. Please change the above text into: Carol Thomas of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR). Carol Thomas is advisor on Governance and Institutional Relations at CEMR and works to promote the views, interests and voice of Europe’s local and regional governments to the EU Institutions. Thank you!!!

      request for participation

      Dear Mr Zavridis, I have no opportunity to offer you a seat in the workshop. The registration period ended last Friday 27 september. Our workshop has been fully booked some days before that date; as conference manager I already had to reject applications, because there were no seats available anymore.
