Rijeka 2020 participation programme: 27 Neighbourhoods
Branka Cvjetičanin, Programme Manager at Rijeka 2020, will present the European Capital of Culture programme 27 Neighbourhoods. The programme consists in connecting 27 local communities with 27 European neighbourhoods, with the aim of strengthening local communities by strengthening human resources, developing interpersonal relationships, organising cultural activities and increasing cultural contents.
All areas of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County are included in 27 Neighbourhoods – islands, the coast, the hinterlands, the highlands and the city of Rijeka. The selected neighborhoods, cities, towns, villages and other areas take part in international partnerships, participate in neighbourhood festivals, and host European Capital of Culture programmes. The challenges and efforts of the integration in the European Union are obvious, as developing the so-called European identity has turned out to be more complex than it seemed.
