Municipality of Middelburg, our partner in the WRC project, has organized a ‘Europe Week’ from November 18th untill 29th 2019. The municipality wanted to bring Europe and Interreg to the attention of its inhabitants (over 50,000) in a positive way.
In recent years many projects have been realized in the municipality of Middelburg. It involves many different projects throughout the municipality. A lot of money is needed to realize these projects. Because European subsidies were available for these projects, they have been realized or are currently being implemented.
The 15 banners showed the projects which are currently being implemented in the municipality, partly thanks to a European subsidy. Through the panels and messages on the municipal website, social media (Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) and the local news, the municipality of Middelburg reached its inhabitants and others.
Also WRC was presented. WRC is an exemplary project for Middelburg on how building a good relationship and intensive cooperation with all stakeholders creates added value for future users of the so-called Molenwaterpark and de Overloper path in Dauwendaele. Middelburg receives a European subsidy for the construction of above-ground or underground water buffers in the Molenwaterpark and the redesign of the surroundings of the new Dauwendaele shopping center plan ‘de Overloper’.
