AICCRE is a political and cultural movement, that maintains its strength and its coherence thanks to the militancy in it of all the levels of the autonomies: from the Municipalities and the others intermediary Public Bodies, to the Regions. As tool of specific action, AICCRE gives particular relevance to the twinning projects, that have created in Europe a network of over 7.000 Municipalities and other twinned territorial Public bodies.
AICCRE steadily operates with universities and its main activities are: training to and for local actors and regional administrations; involvement in EU programs and projects; dissemination and mainstreaming activities at local, national and transnational level. It supports the development of twinning links and any other form of cooperation, exchange of experience and transfer of know-how.
AICCRE addresses regional and local initiatives towards the creation of relations and cooperation of Mediterranean countries for the solution to socio-economic problems. Moreover, it incorporates a consultancy organism of the European Council, operating as a meeting point for the National delegations of local and regional administrators of the Member States for the discussion of themes relevant for the territorial autonomies and for the creation of a “United Europe”.
