The sessions are in the form of workshops and participatory labs based on the exchange of knowledge and good practices.

The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual event during which cities and regions collaborate, network and showcase their problems, job-creating ideas, growth capacity, and good practices implementation of European Union cohesion policy. This approach ensures the involvement and recognition of Cities and Regions in EU policy-making. This is an event where a cross-sectoral community of practitioners is formed, gathering local, regional, national and European decision-makers and experts, business stakeholders, Civil Sector Organizations and others, to make sure all voices are heard.
