At its meeting in Möckelsnäs Herrgård in Sweden ERB Executive Board adopted the ERB action plan for 2012 and 2013. The main objectiive for joint activities within Euroregion Baltic will be to contribute to the implementation of the ERB 202o Agenda, and thus to make ERB an effective political tool, as well as making ERB efficient in dealing with common challenges.
The actions planned to help ERB stakeholders tackle common challenges take into account interests and ambitions proposed by the member organisations during numerous ERB events, including Executive Board meetings and stakeholder conferences, and also brought forward during the visits in November and December 2011. These concern joint efforts aiming at empowering youths with skills and capacities so that they become full-fledged actors in democratic processes, facilitating business to business links and addressing the challenges related to labour markets in the ERB regions. The actions designed in order to improve the political role of ERB are divided into external and internal ones. Externally, ERB will cooperate with the EU institutions and BSR organisations in a number of areas, e.g. EU Cohesion Policy and EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Internal efforts will focus on the enhancement of the stakeholder approach, continuous dialogue among the member organisations and integration of the ERB Youth Board.
