30 years after the Fall of the Berlin Wall and 15 years of EU - Enlargement
In 1989, the victory of Solidarność in the elections in Poland on 4 June and the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November the same year were decisive for the "Autumn of Nations” of that year. The political and social changes had a crucial impact on the modern history of the entire continent beyond Central and Eastern Europe.

Fifteen years later, the fifth and largest EU enlargement took place. On 1 May 2004, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic joined the Union, with Bulgaria and Romania following in 2007. As was the case for the people of Eastern Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the EU enlargement was associated with a new perspective for peace and a future of democracy, freedom and economic prosperity.

What about people’s hopes today? How is the EU facing up to the current challenges? How is the EU reducing economic and social disparities, promoting refugee policy and protecting the future of the Eurozone? How can regions make a contribution to the future of the EU?

Invitation “Cities and regions towards sustainable solutions for energy transition”

mt_ignore

The session will be moderated by Ms Dr Angelika Poth-Mögele, Executive Director European Affairs of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR).


The debate will showcase how local and regional authorities implement sustainable solutions to shift towards a carbon-neutral economy. Cities and regions put into practice driving projects to get on track to the 2050 goals and the localisation of the SDGs, show citizens carbon neutral’s advantages and engage them in the transition, as a shared multi-stakeholder responsibility.

Contributors will present their own strategies and projects related to different aspects of energy transition, such as mobility, energy efficiency in buildings and use of renewable, clean energy sources.

Audience members will get to exchange views with the panellists on the way the EU could consider local and regional suggestions for the future policy framework post-2020.

To register for this event, please go to the website of the European Week of Regions and Cities 2019 and select the code 09WS414.
