It’s been already two weeks since we started our mission as Interreg reporters at the joint secretary of the Interreg Programme ALCOTRA, based in Turin. Our new Italian and French colleagues welcomed us in the best way possible, making us feel part of the team and a precious help for them.
During these first two weeks, we had the opportunity to learn a lot about the ongoing projects and about the communication plan of ALCOTRA. For us, it has been immediately clear how communication is important to address different stakeholders and citizens, and to highlight the benefits of cross-border cooperation for the local communities.
We will be involved in two different sectors of the communication plan of ALCOTRA: Laura will contribute to the organisation of trainings for beneficiaries and facilitators of the programme, with a focus on their communication actions, while Silvia will help in the organisation of the annual event of the Program (that this year will be held in the same day of the European Cooperation Day, the 21st of September!)
We are positive about this experience, and we hope to make the most of it… and of course to be a concrete support for our colleagues!
