Eurodistrict

According to Wikipedia:

A eurodistrict is a European administrative entity that contains urban agglomerations which lie across the border between two or more states. A eurodistrict offers a program for cooperation and integration of the towns or communes which it comprises: for example, improving transport links for people who live and work on different sides of the border. Furthermore, it confers a trans-national regional identity and represents European integration.

This consultation is scheduled to run between October 9, 2010 and November 5, 2010, and addresses the future collaboration between Germany and France in one of the first eurodistricts, Strasbourg-Ortenau. According to Wikipedia:

Strasbourg-Ortenau is a Franco-German eurodistrict, a cross-border administrative entity (groupement européen de coopération transfrontalière) sharing common institutions, established on 17 October 2005 and definitely functional since 4 February 2010. The district is formed by the Urban Community of Strasbourg (centred on the city of Strasbourg) on the French side of the Rhine and the Ortenau district (including Achern, Kehl, Lahr, Oberkirch and Offenburg) on the German side. The combined population of the district is 884,988 (2006/2008). It covers an area of 2,176 km².
