About Workplace Europe 

Cooperation and crossover between organisations in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine

Workplace Europe 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 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.

We are looking forward to expand the Workplace network with more Euregional partners. That is why we would like to welcome you on September 18, 2020 to the second edition of Workplace Europe!

Topic of edition #2: Active European Citizenship 

The main question of this edition will be: How can we get citizens more actively engaged in the Euregional society?

Europe is a daily reality for citizens of the Euregion Meuse-Rhine. That is why, in this edition of Workplace Europe, we are 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.

Who can join in Workplace Europe? 

Workplace Europe brings 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!


Borderless border region

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 Workplace Europe to meet in an innovative, online way!


Conference on the Future of Europe

Workplace Europe is not the only event that is looking for ways to get citizens of the Euregion more engaged in the society. This autumn, the European Council will start a two-year conference on the Future of Europe,  to get citizens involved in a wide-ranging debate on Europe's future in the coming decade and beyond. More information about the conference can be found here.
