Peri-Urban Regions Platform Europe conference Europe’s peri-urban potential: beyond urban-rural links

This conference, held in the headquarters of the Committee of the Regions in Brussels attracted a wide audience of politicians, policy makers and experts from across Europe’s regions as well as from Brussels-based institutions and representations. It looked at three inter-linked areas of policy where there is real potential for peri-urban regions to play a crucial role in the future: • Environment and climate change • Territorial development • Agriculture and food production This summary highlights some of the key points made by speakers and reactions from the audience. It should be read in conjunction with the opening speeches of Mrs Lenie Dwarshuis the President of PURPLE and Mr Luc van den Brande, the President of the Committee of the Regions which are both on the PURPLE website (www.purple-eu.org).

  1. Jannard began by selling what he called ‘The Oakley Grip’ out of the back of his car at motocross events. His motorcycle grips were unlike other grips available at the time, using a patented material known as ‘Unobtanium’, a unique creation by Jannard. The material is still used to make the earsocks on Oakley glasses, and many of the nose pieces.
