Working table on Heritage in Caminha within the framework of the Cross-border Urban Agendas

The municipal library of Caminha was the space chosen for today’s celebration of a new working table with more than 20 attendees, in this case on Natural and Intangible Heritage, within the meetings framed in the process of setting up the Cross-border Urban Agendas of the Rio Minho. The municipal technicians of Caminha, A Guarda and O Rosal met with agents of the territory to share the action proposals designed together by the three municipalities and receive the corresponding feedback from the main actors interested in this area.

So, in addition to the technician of the EGTC Rio Minho, Luis Ulloa, and the manager of the consultancy responsible for monitoring the process, Arturo González, representatives of the Association of Elderly People of O Rosal; the Cultural Association Colectivo Carballas; the Association Redeiras Atalaia, participated in the meeting, also the Association of Professional Fishermen of the Rio Minho and the Sea; of the Association for the Recovery of Historical Memory Camposancos Concentration Camp and Common Grave of Sestas; of Corema-Associação de Defensa do Património; of the Xuliva Cultural Association and of the Parish Councils of Lanhelas and Seixas.

The creation of a Cross-border Urban Agenda is a cooperation and joint planning work based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations that aims to strengthen common governance at the local level, focusing on improving people’s lives.

The training program “Cross-border Urban Agendas of the Rio Minho Eurocities” is integrated into the project “Support Network for Local Dynamics of Cooperation in the Cross-border Rio Minho” – Rede Lab Minho”, promoted by the EGTC Rio Minho and co-financed by the Interreg V-A Program Spain – Portugal”.
