Scenario > Celebration Forum for all Levels of Government

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.


Giuseppe Ferrara, Senior Policy Advisor (Italy)

To celebrate and create unity amongst EU members on the Multi-level Governance (MLG) Charter; local, regional and national leaders come together for a 2 day forum to be trained on the principles of MLG and to sign the Charter. This is a period of celebration and connection around a better way to govern. To create a strong political framework for MLG and begin to instill the right political culture of MLG in Europe. This initiative has been inspired by the Covenant of Mayors governance carried on by Abruzzo Region. This is a fully shared scheme by the entire regional government that is active and involved in the allocation of resources and the reshaping of the Operative Regional Programme to be used in the implementation of the interventions included in the SEAP. The celebration is completed by the signing of the Charter by the new-coming participants.
