14 September, 2020 - 25 September, 2020

You are kindly invited to the Mediterranean Coast and Macro-regional Strategies Week that will take place online from 14 to 25 September 2020. 

The Week is one of the main events of the Slovenian presidency to the EUSAIR strategy. You can follow the events under the slogan "#SloPresidencyEUSAIR".

The aim of the week is not only to raise awareness of the importance of the sea, the coast and its hinterland, and of natural resources and economic potential they represent, but also to outline risks which the sea and the coast are exposed to due to the natural phenomena and human actions. 

Macro-regional strategies aim to make macro-regions, and thus the whole of Europe stronger, more resilient and more attractive to live in, everywhere and for all. This year, the following topics will be addressed: the macro-regional cooperation in tourism recovery, green infrastructure as a basis for European food production, macro-regional contribution to implementation of Green Deal and smart specialisation of the region.

The events that will be held online this year, provide an opportunity to bring together practitioners, experts and the general public from the Baltic, Danube, Adriatic-Ionian and Alpine macro-regions and to discuss most important challenges of today and tomorrow and other macro-regional challenges, as well as the cross macro-regional exchange.
