ALDA at the Annual Congress of the Union of Towns and Cities of Slovakia
On 13 June, Irene Zanetti from ALDA participated in the annual meeting of UTCS in Bratislava. The Union of Towns and Cities of Slovakia is an active partner for ALDA, with its participation in the project WTD, as well as in many other activities.
During the meeting, hosted in the Mirror Hall of the Municipality of Bratislava, the Communication Officer of ALDA gave a speech highlighting the common values shared by ALDA and UTCS and all the work done together. The President of UTCS and Mayor of Bratislava, Mr Milan Ftáčnik, was offered the book published by the association on citizen participation in the European Union and its Neighborhood, which he warmly welcomed as open governance and citizen participation are key issues for local governance and development.
UTCS is also a partner in LADDER, project proposed as a follow-up of WTD and awaiting response. The path of fruitful collaboration between UTCS and ALDA is therefore continuing, under the expertise of its Secretary General Mr Marian Minarovic and Expert Ms Natalia Shovkoplias.
