On 21 September 2017 the Interreg – IPA CBC Bulgaria – Turkey Programme will organize a local event under the motto “Ride to the Wild across the Border”. The goal of this year’s event is to celebrate the benefits of working together across borders and to promote to the general public the main priorities of the Programme: Environmental protection and Sustainable tourism. The location is a village by the sea named Kiyikoy, Republic of Turkey – popular for its natural beauties – sandy beaches, clean sea, two rivers and untouched forest.
The participants from the cross border region between Bulgaria and Turkey will visit the place, where the Ministry for European Union Affairs in Turkey (National Authority of the Programme) in cooperation with the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works of the Republic of Bulgaria (Managing Authority) with the support of the Joint Secretariat will organize the all day activities (cultural, sports and culinary). The core of the event is to reach the natural, cultural and historical sites of the village “riding” the most environmentally friendly mode of transport: bicycles, canoes and walking. The participants will make photos and video spots during all the activities and the most beautiful images will be published for a contest organised on the Facebook page of the Programme. The best shots will be awarded.
Representatives of local authorities, journalists, beneficiaries of the programme from the 2007-2013 period, representatives of the new period projects, students and residents from the Cross-border region (districts of Burgas, Yambol and Haskovo in Republic of Bulgaria and the provinces Edirne and Kırklareli in the Republic of Turkey) are invited to take part in the event.
Imagine the Cooperation like a beautiful journey in Tandem and enjoy it with us!
