Three “not to be missed” sessions during the Annual Forum of EUSBSR

- Recommended by Marko Paunovic, Head of UBC Antenna in Brussels
With the Annual Forum of the EUSBSR just a few days away, we have caught up with Marko Paunovic, Head of UBC Antenna in Brussels and the coordinator of UBC participation in the event, to get some tips on which sessions organised by the UBC should not be missed. And while the obvious answer is, of course, all of them, here are the three recommended by Marko himself:

“Enhancing stakeholder and citizen engagement within the EUSBSR Green Transition”

The webinar will explore different collaborative governance models for enhancing stakeholder engagement in the Baltic Sea Region. The primary aim of the webinar is to boost stakeholder involvement within emerging EUSBSR initiatives related to the green transition.

Suggestion 2: 29th of September, between 15:00-18:00 CET

The session will be dedicated towards showcasing cities’ strategic projects aiming to promote positive social movements in terms of social inclusion, participatory models in communities as well as decision making and citizenship initiatives.
