September month is marked by European Cooperation Day. On 21 September and the surrounding weeks, the EU programmes are celebrating cooperation and the projects’ achievements. Further, in 2020 Interreg turns 30, a new reason to celebrate cooperation in all its shapes.
This year we also faced the most unexpected challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic, when solidarity and collaboration was needed to defeat coronavirus. And because we want you to stay safe during this challenging time, we prepared for you 5 evidences for connection in Black Sea Basin, one for each priority and one to sum up the beneficiaries’ hard work.
#1 Evidence is related to tourism and culture around Black Sea Basin
#2 Evidence presents the cross-border trade opportunities for agricultural and agro-industrial products
#3 Evidence refers to the environmental monitoring
#4 Evidence focusses on the waste management
# 5 Evidence is a summary of beneficiaries’ collaboration
During 21-25 September 2020, we are revealing one evidence per day, so stay tuned to catch the cooperation wave!
No matter the distance, we are celebrating together European Cooperation Day and Interreg 30!
