We are glad to invite you to participate in the Eastern Europe Initiatives Congress (EEIC), which will take place between September 11th and 13th, 2012 in Lublin, Poland. It is the very first undertaking of the Centre for Eastern Competences – a think-tank, which was brought into existence by virtue of triangular letter of intent between the authorities of Marshal’s Office of Lubelskie Voivodship, Lublin City Hall and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
While the EEIC brings to mind the Eastern Partnership Culture Congress held last year in Lublin, its assumptions will expand the preceding Congress’ formula. Within the EEIC framework, an agora-designed debating chamber will be set up, as well as panel discussions and workshops will be held focusing on the next areas:
• good governance,
• civil society,
• culture without borders,
The Congress debates will provide a perfect opportunity to hold a broad discussion with representatives of local authorities, non-governmental organizations, cultural and higher education institutions concerning joint search for and promotion of innovative solutions in the area of cross-border cooperation, tracing out the paths of this cooperation, and working out recommendations for the EU institutions.
The honorary patronage of the Congress includes the Representation of European Commission in Poland.
If you want to participate in the EEIC, please fill in the online registration form.
At the same time we invite you to participate in the Competition for the best projects of cross-border cooperation 2012. The detailed information about the Competition, as well as the competition form designed for submitting competition projects, are available on this webpage.
We encourage you to participate in the Congress and to submit your projects for the Competition!
