Culture and Heritage beyond borders, a key theme for the EGTC Rio Minho at the II Iberian EGTC Meeting 2023

The EGTC Rio Minho participated in the II Meeting of European Territorial Cooperation Groupings of the Iberian Peninsula 2023, in Vigo, which ended yesterday with two days of presentations, talks on cooperation and sharing ideas.

The meeting, organized by the EGTC Galicia – North of Portugal, was attended by almost 30 entities and the Iberian cross-border EGTCs. There, the Interreg programs and the basic cohesion instruments were presented, bringing together different ideas. The future also had a place with a conference on innovation to face common challenges.

Finally, the EGTC Rio Minho presented its proposal on the cultural element of the territory, focusing precisely on culture and cultural heritage beyond borders. The key point, always, is to build bridges and not walls.
