Abstract

National and European employment objectives cannot be achieved without the active involvement
of actors at the regional and local level. The idea of the project SolidarCity has been developed in continuity of
3 EQUAL Projects implemented during the period 2001 – 2006 by EFXINI POLI / Network of 30 Local
Authorities and in collaboration with multidimensional partnerships all having experience in working within
the existing employment policy framework and tailoring programs to local needs, influencing the employment
development policy itself by becoming an integral part of policy design and appliance.
SolidarCity as a decisive intervention from all local actors (regional & local authorities, civil society) for
employment rate increase at local level appears as a need to contribute to the economic modernization and
increased competitiveness of Europe. Main objective of the SolidarCity project is to improve the effectiveness
of regional development policies by enhancing the role and involvement of local & regional authorities and
civil society in employment rate increase through exploring the parameters which burden the active
participation into the local labour market and finding ways to create more and better.
This paper will present the outputs of SolidarCity project concerning policies affecting employment and
entrepreneurship in towns and cities from several countries as: Greece, Bulgaria, United Kingdom, Finland,
Italy and Romania. This project was financed by European Union, European Regional Development Fund
through INTERREG IVC (www.i4c.eu) program.
