European Cooperation Day - September 2013
The MED Programme will celebrate the 2013 European Territorial Cooperation Day in Dubrovnik, Croatia and Valencia, Spain.
Cooperation with Colors and Cycling in Dubrovnik, Croatia
Not only the EU accesion, but also the prosperous cooperation with neighbours will be celebrated in Croatia this year in the framework of the European Cooperation Day 2013, more specifically on 23rd September in Dubrovnik. Following the theme of a 'colorful cooperation', the celebration day starts with the involvement of the young European citizens: pupils from local schools will use colors to express their perception of cooperation and leave a mark in Dubrovnik's city center.
Afterwards, the motto is 'cycling for cooperation': a city wide cycling tour and a 'tour for cooperation' will take place. Three cycling themed projects will take part in these activities, inform about what they developed and how European cooperation helped to foster sustainable transport in cities: the CYCLO project from the MED Programme, the IRON CURTAIN TRAIL project (SEE Programme), Adria Move it! project (ADRIATIC Programme) and the BIKE 4TWF project (Croatia/Bosnia-Herzegowina Programme).
In the third part of the day, music and dance will offer an enjoyful finale: the event will close with an folklore concert showcasing the Croatian traditions.
