Euregio Meuse-Rhine takes second place in Sail of Papenburg award
Since 2002, AEBR awards the Sail of Papenburg Award honours outstanding achievements in cross-border cooperation projects in the fields of culture, economy, institutional cooperation, environment and society. The aim of the award is to showcase successful local initiatives which in turn encourage other border regions to collaborate.
Initiated and sponsored by the EMS Dollart Regio (EDR) the award also motivates border and cross-border regions to continue engaging actively to foster better relations along the borders between the states throughout the European Union.
This year's award focussed on the management of the COVID-19 pandemic and the role of border regions in facilitating the needs of residents, organisations and governing bodies during a time of crisis.
