The PIPE Project: Is there a greater value?


Contributions to Sustainable and Balanced Polycentric Settlement Structures in the Baltic Sea Region and Europe


Introduction and aims

This paper was given at the PIPE meeting in Ulricehamn in May 2004. It seeks to set the PIPE Interreg project in a context of academic research and European policy. It argues that PIPE has tackled important issues, and developed ideas and practices that can make a contribution to regional development. Therefore the paper explores ways in which PIPE might be taken forward.

Participation, Identity and the PeriphEry

Professor Cliff Hague argued last time we were together, in Türi, that the PIPE-project deals with the periphery of the periphery; the less-developed regions of Northern Europe.

As we have seen and will see during this Expo, PIPE also deals with participation and identity.

These will be the components of the next ten minutes in my summary of the PIPE-project; Participation, Identity and the Periphery.

Opening speech at PIPE EXPO

Dear mayors and chairmen, official representatives, ladies and gentlemen.

I am very proud to be here today and give my presentation to this large and very qualified audience. Especially I am happy to meet all my young friends and I look forward to be among you during these days here in this beautiful part of Sweden.

To watch your local projects and your youth enterprises will be a nice experience for all of us. The idea behind this EXPO was to use this event as a momentum which could trigger off local actions, new ideas and energy among young people in co-operation with schools, experts and local and regional authorities.
