In recent years, Yverdon-les-Bains supports the action of the Local Democracy Agency of Shkodra in Albania committed for the enactment of democratic processes in all sectors of local life.  In this framework, a delegation of Shkodra has been hosted in Yverdon-les-Bains to attend a conference, organized in cooperation with the Advisory Commission Swiss –immigrants. This event gave the opportunity to discover the Albanian culture and exchange around four favourite themes for both cities as mobility and environment, economic development, youth and citizenship, tourism and development.

This lecture was given in French and Albanian and it was open to anyone interested. It began at 10 am with the welcome speech by Mr. Daniel von Siebenthal, Mayor of Yverdon-les-Bains and Mr. Lorenc Luka, Mayor of Shkodra.  Then Jean-Claude Ruchet, councillor for Youth and Social Cohesion, introduced the program of the day and the objectives of the conference. It was followed by Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida and Mrs. Anne Moulin, which respectively presented the activities of the Local Democracy Agencies (LDAs) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in Albania. At 11am, a panel discussion moderated by Mr. Laurent Bonnard focused on the subjects of cooperation between the two cities. Musical and theatrical interludes accompanied the different parts of the program closing witha forum with stands run by different project partners.

The cooperation with Shkodra is in the framework of the relationships that Yverdon-les-Bains established with many cities in Switzerland and around the world, through friendship agreement or town twinning.  These relationships allow the city to discover other cultures and political systems, while providing the opportunity to benefit from others experiences. This day with Shkodra will consolidate and develop the already existing friendships between the two cities.
