Some snapshots... I have arrived home from an incredible time in Brussels as winner of the Europe in my Region photo competition organised by the European Commission. Thank you @europeancommission for the wonderful
hospitality show to me and my family.
While in the city I had the chance to attend an insightful photowalk with Emily (@emilyanesmith) from @lesphotographes, who recommended some excellent photo spots in the city.
On Tuesday evening, the privilege of attending the 15th Regiostars Awards, the yearly competition honouring Europe's most inspiring and innovative regional projects.
Finally on Wednesday, a whistlestop tour of Brussels on a photographic commission with Visit Brussels. I'm very excited to share these photos with you in the coming weeks.
#sketchnotes of the session #cohesionalliance and harvesting from #EuRegionsWeek "
The 2017 edition of #EURegionsWeek ended with a debate on
"Building the Cohesion Alliance - New ideas and next steps: Harvesting from #EURegionsWeek ". Organisers: @EU_regional and @EU_COR
And Matthew Buck from Drawnalism for the digital graphic recording of the session.
With my friend Matthew Buck from Drawnalism. We attended the last session of #euregionsweek . Matthew did the official digital graphic recording while I did it on paper, but not officially. At the end we had a look to our respective work and both of us was amazed by what the other did.
I deeply appreciate (love?) my relation with Matthew. He is a god of graphic recording and I'm a newbie if I look to his mastery, but he see at us as equals. He is a so great man!
After the morning session on the contribution of social economy enterprises to cohesion and resilience in cities and regions, the next discussion was held in the #NorwayHouse about active citizens and supporting civil society. One of the examples are the EEA and Norway Grants which represent funding to reduce economic and social disparities and strenghten cooperation with countries in Northern, Central and Southern Europe. ---
