The event was structured in three discussion panels: tourism and culture in a cross-border context, promoting environmental education and environmental protection, creating solutions for distance learning in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. There were also presentations on the European Union's cross-border cooperation programs, on theoretical aspects of cross-border cooperation, but also on the support provided by volunteers at Siret Customs in the context of the conflict in Ukraine.
