Each year on 21 September Europe celebrates cooperation across borders: The European Cooperation Day. An essential aspect of working together in Europe are the EU’s programmes for cooperation – such as Interreg. If you want to learn more about the European Cooperation Day, check the website of the European Commission as well as the Cooperation Day feature on interreg-baltic.eu. To put it in the words of our project manager Jonas Fischer:

“Working in a transnational team made me quickly understand that there is not just one perspective from which to look at a specific problem. Even when countries are very different from each other it is still possible working together fruitfully, finding a common solution that can be adapted to many cases. By collaborating, we could identify the common challenge and understand how to address it equally in all the six countries involved in AREA 21.”
