EUROPEAN APERIPITCH : A time open to all at Europa Nantes !

This year, the new place dedicated to Europe, Europa Nantes, hosted the Apéripitch event on Thursday 24 October, giving the possibility to local inhabitants to get an insight of the Forum.

This open time open to the public was an opportunity for the locals to come and meet with the project holders on their initiatives.

They were distributed in different places of the Europa Nantes reception hall through totems assigned to their various initiatives. It allowed the public to wander freely between the projects, in a relaxed and friendly way!

NCG Cooperation Award 2018-2019 ceremony

Each of the 3 laureates received NCG Cooperation award trophy at the City hall, from André SOBCZAK, Vice-president of Nantes Métropole, Deputy Mayor of Nantes in charge of European affair.

Involvement of NCG on Tour 2019 participants

The NCG Forum also greeted the young people from Nantes who participated to NCG On Tour 2019 . During summer 2019, 4 groups went abroad to meet former NCG Forum participants to discover their projects and actions over there. They therefore visited 4 cities :

- Palermo

- Porto

- Torun (Poland)

- Tbilisi.

The Forum from last October was thus an opportunity for them to share their experience and to present their own made video-report on their trip during the 24 October evening at the City Hall.

NCG Forum is also about musical and cultural discovery ...

All the participants enjoyed more festive times, especially during the evening at the City Hall with a DJ set but also during the NCG night at the Wattignies Social Club with a concert by the group KOKOPELI and the DJ set Abstrack.

The 2019 Forum was also an opportunity to discover the city of Nantes through visits to the city by guides from Le Voyage à Nantes , and to participate in local radio broadcasts produced by Euradio Nantes.
