The European Commission’s Representation in Romania is continuing the “Yes, we care” campaign with a series of visits to projects financed by the EU during the Dutch presidency of the Council of the European Union. The goal is to recognise Romania’s accomplishments in what concerns the use of support offered by the EU.
The theme of the third visit is social economy, and the projects that will be visited are examples of good practices in integrating disadvantages groups.
The visit will take place on Tuesday, May 31, starting at 10 a.m. The first project visited will be the Clay Play pottery workshop, followed by Mamapan, a bakery that employs 11 women from vulnerable groups. Finally, the Kotys Workshops, where an attempt is being made to revitalise handicrafts that are in decline, such as glass blower and ironsmith. A glass blowing demonstration will be offered there.
The campaign seeks to familiarise the ambassadors of EU member states with projects financed with European grants. The first edition took place in 2014, during the Italian presidency of the Council of the EU.
