The European Commission has launched a platform inviting cities and regions to share their experiences of cross-border cooperation during the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, the EU-supported project ‘Joint cultural heritage – source for development of entrepreneurship in the Black Sea basin’ has uploaded a story on the platform.
The project shared how the Ungheni District Council in the Republic of Moldova has been communicating information and recommendations on reducing the risk of COVID-19. The council uses a LED screen, located on Independence Square, in the centre of the town of Ungheni. The screen has been purchased as part of the EU project, and offers citizens 24/7 access to important information.
The cross-border project will run between 2014 and 2020. It aims to improve the welfare of the people in the Black Sea basin region through sustainable growth and joint environmental protection.
