Region of Central Macedonia, Greece

Region of Central Macedonia (RCM) is the largest region in Greece and its capital, Thessaloniki, is the second largest city in Greece in terms of population. The region has a population of 1,875,000 inhabitants, representing 17% of the country’s population and produces 17% of the GDP (second higher contribution after 37,7% of the region of Attica).

In administrative terms the Region of Central Macedonia is a public authority at the second degree of local government, operating at regional level. It comprises seven regional units (former “prefectures”): Imathia, Thessaloniki, Pella, Kilkis, Pieria, Serres and Chalkidiki. Its regional administration is structured at central and regional level. According to its structure, all the relative Regional Units organizationally belong to the central administration which is located in Thessaloniki. Regions according to the Law 3852/2010 “New Architecture of the Self-Government and Decentralized Administration – Kallikratis Programme” design, plan and implement policies at regional level in the context of their jurisdiction, according to the principles of sustainable development and social inclusion of the country and in line with national and European policies.

RCM faces significant challenges regarding its ageing population. Senior citizens represent a high percentage (almost 18%) of the total RCM population. Therefore projects promoting active ageing like Mobile AGE project are more than imperative. RCM has the power and know-how/expertise to implement project activities in its territory, introduce and exchange with the other project partners relevant good practices, involve local/regional stakeholders and increase public awareness and mainstream project outcomes.
