Transnational cooperation in South West Europe

Hello everyone! I am Sara, an Italian volunteering in Spain! 😊 About a month ago I started a new adventure at the Joint Secretary of the Interreg SUDOE Programme, a programme that supports regional development in Southwestern Europe (Portugal, Gibraltar, Spain, Andorra and Southwestern France). The office of the Joint Secretary is based in Santander, a beautiful city in the North of Spain, capital of the autonomous community of Cantabria.

Taking care of terns is also Cohesion Policy

Hello! My name is Ana and I’m from Croatia. I have joined the IVY team over a month ago. I volunteer at the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Zagreb. My time here so far has been made very enjoyable by the great people here. They are easy to communicate with and create a good working atmosphere. We are working on the Interreg Si-Hr project ČIGRA with the goal of conserving and stabilizing Common tern populations on the rivers Drava and Sava.
