22 Dec Working Group on Territorial Development
Since October 2019, SQx and Carmen Moreira in partnership Município de Vila do Porto have been contributing to ENCC’s Working Group on Territorial Development. « The Working Group on Territorial Development and Culture in Non-Urban Areas is a transectorial platform gathering ENCC members, partner networks, researchers, practitioners, policymakers and cultural policy experts. The group shares practices and needs, makes recommendations and participates in shaping our advocacy efforts » (ENCC).
What We’re Up To
- To date members have been collaborating on a ENCC Manifesto called « Crowdsourced Manifesto: Culture for Shared, Smart, Innovative Territories, » which is currently still under the editing phase by representatives of ENCC, CAE, and IETM in order to create one joint document. This document will then be officially launched as a joint document on 16th March in Brussels called the « Manifesto for Territorial Development. » MEP’s and other politicians will attend the launch, and ENCC, IETM and CAE will present their common policy paper to them.
- A number of members of the working group (including SQx in partnership with Município de Vila do Porto and Netzwerk Kultur & Heimat) were also selected as part of the Voices of Culture joint dialogue.
- The Working Group also applied for the special session at 60th ERSA 2020 Congress in Bolzano, Italy.
