ALDA works in the European Union promoting active European citizenship, in tight cooperation with local authorities, civil society networks, and European institutions.
The activities of ALDA help raising citizens' understanding and sense of belonging to the European Union, and stimulate intercultural dialogue and civic participation.
By conducting its own and its members' projects, as well as through lobbying activities, ALDA fosters citizen participation and local democracy on four main pillars: citizenship, culture, education and volunteering; social issues; youth empowerment and employment; health and environment.
The European Association for Local Democracy is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to the promotion of good governance and citizen participation at the local level. ALDA focuses on activities that facilitate cooperation between local authorities and civil society.
