European Cooperation Day 2013 - Be part of it!

On 21 September 2013 and the surrounding days was one opportunity to join your “neighbour” in celebrating the achievements of more than 20 years of territorial cooperation in Europe in your region.

Personally supported by EU commissioner Johannes Hahn and by European Parliament member Marie-Thérèse Sanchez-Schmid, European Cooperation Day invited all Europeans again this year to get out and meet their neighbours, joining in the fun with them at one of the events that was showcased both results achieved and ongoing projects, bringing European neighbours even closer.

Find out about the events that happened on the map above and major achievements of Territorial Cooperation (Flagship stories), as well as information on what territorial cooperation is in Europe. To keep yourself updated, follow us also on facebook, twitter and youtube.

“Sharing borders, growing closer” is the motto for the celebration of this spirit of cooperation throughout Europe and beyond, as territorial cooperation also involves neighbouring countries of the EU.

Following the first European Cooperation Day organised in 2012, this year people cycled together, sang together, ate together, and in general had a wonderful time in each other’s company in around 180 events in 31 countries.
