MOVING EU MAP webinar | Towards a Policy Roadmap for vibrant mountain economies

May 8, 2024

A few weeks are left to the European Parliament’s elections and the set-up of the discussions for a proposal of the post-2027 EU policies. The last MOVING EU MAP webinar “Towards a Policy Roadmap for Vibrant Mountain Economies”, organised online on 8 May 2024, from 10.00 AM-12:00 PM (CET), took place in this crucial moment to reflect on the future of EU policymaking and its priorities. Have a look at the agenda.

This webinar contributed to raising the voice of >900 mountain actors consulted by the MOVING project, and the need to better integrate mountains in the EU political agenda. During the event, key experts provided an overview of trends and proposals likely to govern the post-2027 policy developments in the EU’s mountain areas.

Hence, the MOVING project unveiled its proposal for Strategic Options and a policy roadmap to ensure that rural and mountain areas are not excluded from EU’s future policy development. The webinar contributed to validating and enriching both elements, which will be presented during the MOVING Final Conference (13-14 June, Brussels- Belgium).

The event is co-organised by the ELIF Community on Territorial Development.
