For many years the cities have been actively pursuing closer collaboration with the ambition to jointly position the cities as a Northern European Centre for dynamic growth -opening a multitude of possibilities for creating a new European Region. By promoting cultural encounters beyond country borders this mutual goal becomes a living experience for the people of the North! It is important to recognize and use the mediating function of culture to move Europe together - Move the North.
