To mark the 30th anniversary of Interreg, a new podcast series introduces stories of cooperation from across the EU throughout the year. The second episode of 'This is Europe' is out now. This time, the topic is neighbours and cooperation across borders. 

Follow journalist Shahidha Bari to Strasbourg and Kehl and take a rider over the river Rhine. Hear how Interreg has contributed to keeping locals connected over the border. After visiting France and Germany, continue to Slovenia and learn about Smart Villages. Stay on the tour and you'll end up in coastal Spain and discover the future of small-scale fishing operations.  

If you feel like continuing the journey once the episode is over, keep touring Europe and catch up on episode one ('A Greener Europe'). 

The podcast is produced by the Interact programme. All episodes are available here.
