GIMED joins the 19th European Week of Regions and Cities
How can we build a community of resilient people in the Mediterranean area? How can we ease the shift to a greener way of living? On the 13th of October (11:30-13:00 CET) as part of the European Week of the Regions and the Cities, the Interreg ADRION and MED programmes, and ENI CBC MED will jointly present stories of cooperation supporting green transition across and beyond the European Union.
