Scenario > Training program for Multi-level Governance

This is a future scenario* to show how the charter can create a shift in how Multi-level governance (MLG) is applied in Europe. It has been developed during the “Engagement Interviews”,  (Brussels – 03-04/2012).

* The following story is a fiction imagined during the co-creation process and does not engage the public authorities or stakeholders eventually mentioned.


Julie Schneider, Senior Policy Advisor, EU Regional Think Tank (Brussels)

“In order to achieve the right political culture and capacity for the charter, as well as capacity of the people to embrace Multi-level Governance culture, educational training is essential for this process. The partnership between Committee of the Regions and EU capacity building associations. For this reason the education programs developed and designed by bodies like these, is going to assist with the institutionalization of MLG culture throughout the EU. Each region will integrate skilled people into their governance system to negotiate, create partnerships and instill the culture of sharing and collaboration between different levels of government. The MLG Charter is in the beginning of the process of instilling a culture of collaboration, so the education program helps to enhance the MLG agenda in the governance system of Europe.”
