European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau will be in Nantes on November 9 to meet with supporters of projects representing the contributions of associations – key partners for the government– to European policies.
Ms. Loiseau will speak with representatives of Alliance Europa, an umbrella organization at the University of Nantes that brings together institutions of higher learning with local governments and associations. It will present an innovative project on societal innovation (the “Fabrique des idées européennes” or “European Idea Factory”).
She will also meet with representatives of the future “Pôle Europe,” which aims to boost the visibility of associations in Nantes involved in European issues. She will join high school seniors from the Lycée Nelson Mandela in an activity hosted by the Graine d’Europe association on European citizenship, and she will visit the studios of Euradio Nantes, a local radio station devoted to European news.
