On 21 September 2013 and the surrounding days, you can join your "neighbour” in celebrating the achievements of more than 20 years of territorial cooperation in Europe in your region.

Personally supported by EU commissioner Johannes Hahn and by European Parliament member Marie-Thérèse Sanchez-Schmid, European Cooperation Day invites you again this year to get out and meet your neighbours, joining in the fun with them at one of the events that will be showcasing both results achieved and ongoing projects, bringing you and your European neighbours even closer.

"Sharing borders, growing closer” is the motto for the celebration of this spirit of cooperation throughout Europe and beyond, as territorial cooperation also involves neighbouring countries of the EU.
In 2012, people cycled together, sang together, ate together, and in general had a wonderful time in each other’s company in more than 280 events in almost 40 countries. Among the events was a race between a horse and a tractor, people swimming from one country to another, and a concert in a cave underneath a national border… What do you think this year’s celebrations will bring?

European Cooperation Day 2013. Sharing borders, growing closer.

European Cooperation Day is coordinated by the INTERACT II Programme.
INTERACT is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
