Share your story and join the #Interreg30 celebration

20.04.2020 |

All through 2020, Interreg will be celebrating 30 years of Interreg programmes, the EU's emblematic programme that encourages territorial cooperation between European regions. To mark the 30th anniversary of Interreg, the Interact programme is collecting stories about cooperation between regions across Europe.

In this special edition of the Interreg Project Slam, six projects of six finalists will share their story on stage at Interreg 30 years Project Slam during the European Week of Regions and Cities (10-15 October, Brussels) in front of an audience of more than 200 people, including the top EU politicians and peers from regions all across Europe. The finalists will also get personal coaching and communication training to prepare the final performances. In addition to the live performance, their videos will be promoted in a social media contest (last year more than 100.000 people voted for the best projects).

The Interreg 30 years Project Slam is open to all Interreg programmes. Interreg Europe projects can express interest by sending their story to the joint secretariat (one story per project).

The stories must be linked to one of the three #Interreg30 themes:

We all have a neighbour
Greener Europe
