The European Movement International visits ALDA headquarter
Within the framework of the week training session organised by the European Movement International Training Academy, a group of 5 students aged 19-26, coming from Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Spain and Switzerland, met ALDA’s staff of the Strasbourg office on Wednesday, 11 September.
The aim of the training is to learn more about European institutions such as the Council of Europe, the European Parliament, the European Court of Human Rights and the European Ombudsman.
Meeting ALDA staff at the headquarters in Strasbourg was an opportunity for getting to know more about other key stakeholders active at European level in promoting good governance and citizen participation.
Aldo Xhani, ALDA project manager, and Edina Dzogovic, ALDA project manager assistant, welcomed the students and provided them with a general overview of the organisation’s main traits and of its key projects granted by the European Commission under the Europe for Citizens and Youth in Action programmes..
The introduction was followed by a questions and answers session in which the participants required further information on ALDA's activities. Special emphasis was put on the project POPEYE – Promoting Organic Production, Enhancing Youth Employment as coping with a topic of strong impact such as youth employment in rural areas.
