Organization: On 15 June 1985, at Louvain-la-Neuve, 47 Regions and 9 interregional organisations founded the Council of the Regions of Europe (CRE), which would later become the Assembly of European Regions in November 1987 at the second General meeting of the Regions of Europe in Brussels. In the year 1985 AER launched its first programme, Eurodyssey, designed to promote and encourage youth mobility. The creation of the Committee of the Regions (CoR) in 1994 and the Chamber of the Regions in the framework of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (CLRAE) in 1994, exemplified a victory for AER in advocating for the regions in Europe. In 1995, AER launched a campaign to promote regionalism in Europe. As a result, 300 AER members adopted in 1996 the Declaration on Regionalism in Europe immediately initializing a reference document for new and developing regions. Now the Assembly of European Regions (AER) is the largest independent network of regions in wider Europe. Bringing together more than 200 regions from 35 countries and 16 interregional organizations, AER is the political voice of its members and a forum for interregional co-operation. The present President is Magnus Berntsson from Västra Götaland (Sweden).
