IVY Volunteers' Events

IVY Volunteers can organise local events - so called Citizens Engagement Activities – to inform citizens about Cohesion Policy, with a financial support of up to 3,000 EUR provided by the European Commission and the Association of European Border Regions. Browse here and learn more about the volunteers’ past and future events.

CEA Students’ Lab

In this online CEA, students from Molise Region in Italy will have the opportunity to discover more about cohesion and cooperation in Europe, and express themselves on this topic! They will be part of a workshop on EU policies and they will develop the concept for a future event that will inform and promote Cohesion Policy and territorial cooperation. 

Online Interreg Treasure Hunt

In this 4-days online event, participants had to solve puzzles, complete creative tasks and correctly answer questions about Cohesion Policy in Europe, Interreg projects in Klaipeda, and other topics. These questions encouraged people to search for information about Cohesion Policy online.

ActivArte 2.0

Following the frame of “Craft & Art” project Interreg MAC Cooperation Program, our former IVY volunteer Marion Charret, created “ActivArte 2.0“project, an original concept proposing a continuity of the previous CEA event “ActivArte” (held in Gran Canaria in August 2019).

“PROMO-MED”: Promoting Silver Tourism through a MED-Diet Seminar and Workshop

The event combined a seminar about Agro-food and tourism sector and an Interactive Q&A debate among the participants. Following, there was a workshop called “Cooking with Med Products – A New Chemistry” where traditional chefs explained the benefits of the Mediterranean ingredients in the preparation of Med recipes and they will also cook certain plates live, in cooperation with the participants, following the Covid-19 safety regulation guidelines.

Cooperation as a driver for sustainable development

Our former volunteer Giuseppe Macca presented this CEA with the idea of promoting the concept of territorial cooperation and its Interreg programs and link it with the idea of a sustainable future, not only from an environmental perspective but also from a social one. The event was thought to be blended physical and digital to reach the local community and the global one.

Bringer Europe Closer to Nature

The goal of this activity was to spread the message of the EU Cohesion Policy in the areas of nature and wildlife citizens passionate about nature and local schools. The quiz covered topics such as nature conservation projects funded by the EU, protected species under the Habitats Directive, and ways citizens can get involved with environmental issues in the EU, e.g. Freiwillige Ökologisches Jahr (Voluntary Ecological Year). The goal of the quiz was to make people aware of the role of the Cohesion Policy in projects that combat climate change, protect nature, and promote biodiversity.
