After a successful first edition, we are for the second – online – edition of Workplace Europe, looking for collaborations, activities and projects – including social, cultural, economic, political, educational and sports topics – that actively get more citizens engaged in the Euregional society. During this session the leading question will be: ‘How can we get citizens more actively engaged in the Euregional society?’.
About workplace Europe
Workplace Europe is a cooperation and crossover between organisations in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine and brings organisations in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine together for whom European and Euregional cooperation is important. It is the place to meet, share best practices, learn from each other, realise ideas and explore new, sustainable partnerships for a better Europe.
The aim of Workplace Europe is to bring people together from Europe-oriented organisations operating in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine and the MAHHL cities. This is where NGOs, associations, foundations, citizens’ initiatives, cultural organisations and think tanks in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany join forces.
Are you a project manager, programme-maker, policy maker, researcher, director, representative of a governmental organisation or (volunteer) organisation? Then become part of this network and share your ideas, questions and experiences!
About this edition
The Corona pandemic underlined that, living and working across the border in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine is our reality. When the borders were suddenly closed off, we also partly lost our freedom of mobility in our daily lives. No more cycling trips across borders, shopping in Germany, family visits to Belgium or going to work in the Netherlands. The differences between European countries and the importance of international – and especially Euregional – cooperation became clear. That’s why we need innovation and new forms of cooperation. We therefore like to use this edition of Workplace Europe to meet in an innovative, online way!

The first edition of Workplace Europe attracted 70 participants from 50 organisations, who put more than 20 topics on the agenda and brought concrete initiatives to life. Together with these partners, we are now following up on the first edition, serving the need in the Euregion to cooperate in an innovative and interdisciplinary way.
