Cohesion, Our Fundamental Value 

One of the main priorities of the European Committee of the Regions for the period 2020-2025 is to demonstrate that cohesion is not (just) money but a fundamental value of the European Union.
Through its own activities and the ones carried on together with the #CohesionAlliance, the Committee is committed to promote the view that economic, social and territorial cohesion is fostered and respected in all EU policies.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Our goals

Cohesion, our fundamental value is one of three major initiatives of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), along with the campaigns on the Future of Europe and the Green Deal.

The #CohesionAlliance, launched in 2017 by the CoR and the main European territorial associations (AER, AEBR, CALRE, CEMR, CPMR, and EUROCITIES), is the main and most powerful channel through which the Committee wants to:

  • Demonstrate that cohesion is not (just) money but a fundamental value of the European Union.
  • Promote the view that economic, social and territorial ​cohesion is fostered and respected in all EU policies.
  • Promote the involvement of regions and cities in the shaping and delivery of national recovery plans.
  • Promote the integration on the ground of cohesion policy funds and all other EU recovery and funding instruments.
  • Foster rural areas' recovery and urban-rural cooperation.​​​​
