1st Borders Forum

Cross-border territories on the front line ?

Forum

The new meeting place for cross-border actors

For several decades now, cross-border territories have been described as “laboratories of European integration”, yet there are encouraging signs in cross-border news that are helping to strengthen their leading role.

This first edition of the borders forum will be a special meeting place for local, national and European cross-border stakeholders, a place for debating the challenges, obstacles and projects of these European territories on a daily basis, and an ideal time to bear witness to an ambitious France on the European stage.

Paroles d'intervenants

“Le Covid19 nous pousse à envisager les nouveaux enjeux de la coopération territoriale européenne. Réussirons-nous le passage de la chenille au papillon ? Quelle sorte de papillon deviendrons-nous ? Aucune idée! Nous devons cependant envisager l’avenir de nos bassins de vie. Comment l’Europe peut-elle nous aider à y arriver ? En concentrant l’agenda politique sur les questions de santé, de mobilité, de solidarité, de défense de l’environnement et de citoyenneté. C’est oser un Plan Marshall européen conséquent pour aider les pays à redresser la barre.”

Loïc Delhuvenne

 

Directeur général de l’Agence de l’Eurométropole Lille-Kortrijk-Tournai

“La crise sanitaire a des conséquences lourdes dans les territoires transfrontaliers. La coopération transfrontalière sera incontournable pour surmonter les difficultés à venir.”

 

Arola Urdangarin

 

Directrice de l’Eurorégion Nouvelle-Aquitaine-Euskadi-Navarre

“Le COVID-19 ne connaît aucune frontière. C’est pourquoi la coopération transfrontalière est décisive pour mener une lutte efficace contre ce virus. A l’échelle franco-genevoise, cette coopération déjà tangible et solide a pu s’intensifier rapidement grâce à la confiance mutuelle et à la solidarité développées entre les autorités françaises et genevoises depuis de nombreuses années.”
