CAAC goes to the University

On Friday 21st October 2011, CAAC coordinator, Ms. Tamara Guirao Espiñeira, was invited by the University of Santiago de Compostela to give a lesson on EU urban territorial cooperation for the students of the master on Regional Development and Economic Integration.

The exposition, called Atlantic Arc Cities: Territorial Cooperation at a local scale, made a comparison between the current regional policy and the last EU Commission proposals, so as to try to define the new role cities and Atlantic cities among them, have to play in the future. CAAC coordinator also presented the proposals for an Atlantic Arc Strategy that should be land inclusive and not only coastal and the San Sebastian Charter as a key document in urban development in the Atlantic Area.

Interesting topics such as macro-regions, conditionality or administrative burden allowed a debate with the students and teachers attending the meeting.
