This is Mission 2, a promising event of a series of activities covering the four EU macro-regions where civil society representatives from the Alpine (EUSALP) macro-region and beyond come together in Lyon, the heart of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes to put into practice their commitment to strengthen macro-regional cooperation with a bottom-up approach.

The event is part of our ongoing efforts to bring together CSOs from the four macro-regions to promote cooperation and identify common areas of action and responses to challenges. Followed by Mission 1, a similar event for the Danube (EUSDR) macro-region in February 2024 in Budapest, the Lyon meeting brings a new dimension to the debate by bringing the specificities of the Alpine region.
