ALDA participates to the European Local Democracy Week, check out our events!
The European Local Democracy Week (ELDW) will take place between 9 and 15 October and ALDA will join the event with a number of initiatives organized in the frame of project MEANING.
The “European Local Democracy Week” is an annual European event co-ordinated by the the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, in which local authorities from 47 member states of the Council of Europe (and beyond) organise public events to raise awareness on a number of issues of current interest.
The ultimate aim of the event is to promote and foster democratic participation at at grassroots level in Europe and, in particular, to let citizens know how local authorities operate and what local elected representatives are doing at the European level, as well as to inform them of their opportunities to take part in local decision-making processes.
This year, the event will pay homage to the European Charter of Local Self-Government, opened for signature on that date in 1985.
Through project MEANING, ALDA will be present and organize the following initiatives:
- "Metropolitan governments shaping EU Urban policy", which will be held in Brussels on October 11th
- "Promoting e-participation of European youth", a dissemination activity which will take place in Brussels on October 12th
- "Energies for Local Administrations to Renovate Governance in Europe", hosted by the city of Milan on October 16th and 17th
- "The 4th Danube Participation Day in the EU Danube Strategy", held in Budapest on October 17th
