www.ladder-project.eu

Project LADDER on the starting blocks!

One common project (3 years)
26 partners & 20 associates, coming from 18 EU and 17 non EU-countries
One major challenge for the EU and its Neighborhood: Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR)

 

The project "LADDER – Local Authorities as Drivers for Development Education and Raising awareness" has just started and will be running until December 2017 (36-month duration).

Funded by EuropeAid, LADDER has 1 global objective and 4 specific ones. For the next 36 months, it will seek to enhance and increase the action of Local Authorities in EU DEAR policies, with special reference to the EU Neighboring area. To do so, the following specific objectives have been identified:

  1. strengthen the capacity of associations of local authorities (LAs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) to act in a sustainable way as drivers for development, fostering their role of multipliers within their countries, communities and networks,

  2. inform, raise awareness and engage citizens in global issues, global interdependency and development education

  3. develop & reinforce the cooperation between LAs and CSOs, to lead to winning synergies

  4. improve DEAR methods in non-formal education system, through the development of new and innovative methods and tools addressed to a wide range of stakeholders (including educators, civil servants, NGOs, youth leaders etc).

 

The strong commitment of the 26 Partners and the active involvement of the 20 Associates (including their respective networks) will ensure the timely implementation of the project and the fulfilment of its objective. A series of capacity building seminars & trainings, exchange meetings, conferences and  events are foreseen to take place at international, national and local level, while a re-granting scheme will be implemented at all 28 EU Member States. Acting as an EU & Neighborhood-wide project on DEAR policies, a particular attention will be given to the European Year for Development 2015 and its follow-up.

*LADDER is the natural follow up of the project Working Together for Development (WTD), which focused on information, training and networking for LAs associations and networks of CSOs in the field of development cooperation. The will and strong motivation of the great majority of WTD partners in continuing the challenge together by setting higher goals cannot but be considered as a key result of the project itself.

The Partners of the project  

LADDER consortium is composed of 26 partners (coming from 18 countries: 15 Members States and 3 from the neighborhood and the Balkans) that will be actively involved in the implementation of the project in order to enable Local Authorities to act as drivers for DEAR policies.
