Structural cross-border cooperation in the field of prevention has taken another step forward.
Within the framework of the Interreg Deutschland-Nederland project SHE (Sustainable Healthy Euregio Rhein-Maas-Nord), the health departments of Viersen, Düsseldorf, Rhein-Kreis Neuss, Krefeld and the Veiligheidsregio Limburg-Noord as well as the GGD Zuid Limburg confirmed their cooperation beyond the end of the project at our project meeting in Viersen.
With the signing of a cooperation agreement with euPrevent, this was done. The cooperation will therefore continue after the end of the SHE project in December 2022.
Therefore, we will continue right next year by jointly conducting a euregional youth survey (YES 2023) under the leadership of the GGD Zuid-Limburg.
At the same time, we are jointly developing another initiative on the topic of environment and health. Because climate change and its impact on health will also affect our Euroregion in the future.
We warmly welcome our new partners and look forward to a strong partnership in the future!
