Cross-border identity and engagement of civil society in twin cities
TEIN4C: Citizens engagement in cross-border cooperation
The 3rd international forum in the framework of the TEIN4citizens project took place on 5 March 2020 at the Polish-Czech border. Under the title “Cross-border identity and look at the engagement of civil society in the context of twin cities”, this forum brought together citizens, political representatives and experts from different border regions in order to discuss the role of civil society in cross-border cooperation and how its involvement could be enhanced. Cross-border initiatives of involving the civil society in the functioning and development of the twin city Cieszyn/Cesky Tesin were presented and compared with best practices from other border regions.
