“DECENTRALISATION, DEVELOPMENT, DEMOCRACY - INNOVATING FOR A EUROPE IN 3D”. THE CADIZ DECLARATION ADOPTED BY CEMR GENERAL ASSEMBLY (Càdiz, E, 26 – 28 September 2012)



From the 26th to the 28th of September took place the General Assembly (Etats Généraux) of the CEMR-CCRE (Council of European Municipalities and Regions) in Cadiz (Spain).
It focused on Innovation 3D : democracy, decentralisation, development. ALDA participated with the presence of the Director, Antonella Valmorbida.

Around 600 participants from all over Europe attended the debates and the workshop focused on how to address the different crisis affecting us these days, seen from the point of view of the cities: economy and financial stability, strengthening of Europe, sustainable development, gender equality.
Mayors, leaders, elected members and representatives of European local governments, cities, intermediate authorities and regions, have adopted the Cádiz Declaration, on the occasion of this 25h CEMR General Assembly.
The declaration entitled “Decentralisation, Development, Democracy - Innovating for a Europe in 3D” proposes a new approach to development that relies on European territories able to create the conditions for new growth – growth that is more sustainable and able to create jobs.
"Europe in 3D" means, first, the emergence of a Europe that believes that collaboration among political, economic and social actors is the key to recovery. Decentralisation, Democracy and Development are the three dimensions on which a renewed and strengthened common voice of the entire EU must be expressed”.
Many participants were also member of the ALDA and LDA's network and it was the opportunity to focus on new projects and ideas to support local democracy, local governance and citizens participation.
