Bridges of Trust Forum
Join un on 28 October, from 09:00 to 12:00 CEST, and learn more about partnerships between Ukrainian and EU local governments. This online event will be conducted in English and Ukrainian, with simultaneous interpretation.
The Forum is organised in the framework of the Initiative “Bridges of Trust: Empowering municipalities in Ukraine and in the European Union through building municipal partnerships”, implemented by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), PLATFORMA and supported by the U-LEAD with Europe.
Today, international municipal cooperation between Ukrainian and EU municipalities is perceived by many, including the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, as one of the important instruments that can help Ukraine and Ukrainian communities recover, rebuild and renew. Closer personal links and cooperation based on joint projects and actions between the peers in Ukraine and the EU are also facilitating the integration with and the future accession of Ukraine into the EU family.
Therefore, the aim of this Forum is to highlight and promote partnerships between municipalities in Ukraine and the EU member states.
The Forum will be focused on the following components:
- Partnerships between Ukrainian and EU municipalities, in the framework of the “Bridges of Trust” Initiative.
- Examples of European Union funding programmes supporting partnerships between Ukrainian and EU municipalities.
