The crucial role of the Regions and Municipalities in dealing with all modern challenges was highlighted by the first vice-president of the European Committee of the Regions and regional governor of Central Macedonia Apostolos Tzitzikostas from the floor of the 10th European Conference on Regions and Cities, held in the Belgian city of Mons. "Without the Regions and the Municipalities there is no future for the European Union," Tzitzikostas underlined adding that our vision for the future of Europe must have its roots in local communities.

Citizens demand an EU that can act and not just react, lead and not just follow, protect, innovate, inspire, look forward without leaving any or any region behind, he noted.

He also proposed that today there is a greater need than ever to forge the soul of Europe and to give citizens the opportunity to co-create common future policies. Today more than ever there is a need to strengthen EU policies, such as cohesion, and to have public investment and new sources for the EU budget, he added.

He also referred to the need to bridge the gap between European citizens and European institutions. In particular, he emphasized that citizens should better participate in the decision-making process.
