ENCORE’s driving force is its biennial Conference. At the Conference, regional ministers are able to establish common positions towards EU policies and legislation, as well as exchange good practices as a basis for regional cooperation.

During the current EMRA presidency, the ENCORE network has focused on the themes of Climate Action, Ecosystem Services, and Circular Economy . With the 2021 Conference being held in the Irish Midlands, these themes will be examined under the lens of the Just Transition process.

A series of virtual events are being held this year to prepare for and build the conversation towards the main ENCORE and YouthCORE conferences.
