The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has awarded Terrassa a new prize in recognition of the work done in favour of European integration and promotion of the European ideal: “The Plaque of Honour”2015. Terrassa had already won “The European Diploma” in 2009 and “The Flag of Honour” in 2010.
Terrassa City Council has a department for International and European relations since 2002. It has been created with the aim of bringing the European integration to the city through the implementation of European programs, the participation on European networks and fostering relations with international organisations.
The department for International and European relations presented its candidature to participate in the 2015 call for the “Plaque of Honour”. The department compiled all the international activity: projects, networks, cultural and sport events, exchanges with other European cities and activities related with the European issues.
The “Plaque of Honour” will be delivered to Terrassa on the next months by a member from the Commission or the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. The event will be opened to all the citizens.
