Over the last few years Euroregion Baltic has been constantly developing its activities as an important and active cooperation platform not only in the South Baltic area but in the wider Baltic Sea Region. These activities resulted not only in the improved visibility of the organisation but also started to deliver concrete results based on the involvement of ERB in several cross-border projects. This development momentum culminated in 2018 when on its 20th anniversary ERB has been approached by the Skåne Association of Local Authorities (Kommunförbundet Skåne – KFSK) to discuss a potential membership in the organisation.
The Skåne Association of Local Authorities (Kommunförbundet Skåne – KFSK) is a nonprofit organisation with the task of supporting and developing the local self-governance, protecting local interests, promoting collaboration between municipalities and assisting them in their activities. With all 33 municipalities in Skåne being members of the Association, KFSK works in important cooperation areas of energy and climate, environment and community planning, labour market and business, local authority management, education, public health and welfare as well as research, innovation and development.
The Association is also very active in cross-border cooperation, supporting their municipalities in international projects and directly joining some of them as an important and very experienced actor. This will undoubtedly provide a added value in ERB cooperation, opening the platform to new ideas and cooperation initiatives, especially in the area of green tech and sustainable development.

How do we improve the opportunities for young people in regions and cities across Europe, and what can be gained by doing so? Get inspiration (and lunch) at our side-event ”Regions and Cities for Youth”
Whether you are from a small rural village or a big city, local and regional authorities are often responsible for youth and the facilitation of their everyday lives. However, European regions and cities face several challenges regarding youth – such as demographic changes, the need for developing skills and the well-being of youth. What would you say is the biggest challenge for your city or region?
Join us at this side-event where we explore how the EU´s toolbox (e.g. Erasmus+ and the EU Solidarity Corps) can make your region/city more attractive for young people and thereby boost regional growth. This unique seminar brings together several participants, and thereby perspectives, from all over Europe: from North, West, East and South. Youth voices will be present throughout the conference and Novi Sad, the youth capital of 2019, will share their experiences on how they managed to win this prestigious title. Welcome!
