The Lublin Municipal Office invites you to the 11th edition of CROSS-BORDER COOPERATION CONGRESS LUBLIN 2022 on 5-7 October in Lublin, Poland and online. The event is organised with the honorary patronage of the European Commission.

The Cross-Border Cooperation Congress is a meeting place for practitioners of cross-border cooperation from the EU and the Eastern Partnership countries.

It is a platform for dialogue between local governments, non-governmental organisations, science, culture and business. Thousands of people from over 40 countries have participated in the previous editions of the Congress.

This year's edition of the Congress will be held in a hybrid format (participants onsite and on-line), with simultaneous translation into Polish, English and Ukrainian. City representatives from different parts of Europe have been invited participate in the discussion to summarize the cooperation of local communities in support for Ukraine and its citizens from a broad perspective.

A wide range of interesting topics related to the current situation are part of the programme, including: cooperation and medical assistance for Ukraine, the functioning of the administration and judiciary during the war, and the phenomenon of disinformation and manipulation. There will also be a panel presenting war from a female perspective: "War through the eyes of women, women at war".

As the next year's European Youth Capital, Lublin invited young people from all over Europe to the meetings and debates. Due to the initiative "Youth for the City, City for Youth – projects and initiatives involving and including local communities", the organisers will create space for young people from Poland, Norway, Ukraine and Belarusians for discussion during panels and workshops as well as study visits within the Congress.

This year's Congress will be accompanied by Cross-Border Cooperation Academy – a week-long workshop for young leaders from the Visegrad Group and the Eastern Partnership on, in particular, activities for intercultural integration. An important area of the Congress will be the sustainable and innovative development of public transport.

Within the project "MOVE IT LIKE LUBLIN" implemented in partnership with Chișinău, there will be a panel, workshop and study visit on innovative solutions in public transport.

Traditionally, there will be the Grants' Fair and the Partners' Forum, combined with the presentation of the new financial perspective of the Program Interreg NEXT Poland-Ukraine 2021-2027 (former Cross-border Cooperation Programme PL-BY-UA).

The main feature of the Congress is a diverse cultural program. This year, it will be possible to participate live or on-line in performances, concerts, exhibitions and meetings with the slogan "City beyond the borders".

The registration for the Congress is free of charge on this link.
