La conférence est une occasion très importante pour discuter sur comment améliorer la promotion de l’éducation au développement au niveau local; comment les organismes locaux et les organisations de la société civile (CSO) résultent essentiels pour l’éducation au développement et à la sensibilisation du public; et comment faire pour agir efficacement au niveau local, à travers un raisonnement universel.

Que veut dire LADDER – en quelques mots :

  • Un projet européen commun (3 ans) conduit par ALDA
  • 26 partenaires et 20 associés, de 18 pays UE et 17 pays non – UE
  • Un grand défi : Education et conscience au développement (Développement      Education and Awareness Raising – DEAR)

LADDER est un projet de trois années financé par L’UE, qui vise à augmenter l’action des organismes locaux dans l’éducation au développement à l’intérieur de l’Union Européenne et du Voisinage. Les organismes locaux, en coopération avec la société civile, ont en effet la capacité de devenir des multiplicateurs et de conduire le changement dans les communautés impliquées.
Les bénéficiaires finals du projet sont les citoyens, qui seront bientôt sensibilisés sur le thème, pour après être stimulés à agir dans les défis globaux et dans la lutte à la pauvreté à moyen terme, tout en  pointant sur un changement d`attitude à long terme.

Cos’è LADDER – in poche parole:

  • Un progetto europeo comune (3 anni) guidato da ALDA
  • 26 partner e 20 associati, da 18 paesi UE e 17 non-UE
  • Una grande sfida: Educazione e consapevolezza allo sviluppo (Development Education and Awareness Raising  – DEAR)

LADDER è un progetto di tre anni finanziato dalla UE, che mira ad aumentare l’azione degli enti locali nell’educazione allo sviluppo all’interno dell’Unione Europea e del Vicinato. Gli enti locali, in cooperazione con la società civile, hanno infatti la capacità di diventare moltiplicatori e guidare il cambiamento nelle comunità coinvolte.

I beneficiari finali del progetto sono i cittadini, che nel breve termine verranno sensibilizzati sul tema, per poi essere stimolati ad agire nelle sfide globali e nella lotta alla povertà nel medio termine, e puntando a un cambio attitudinale nel lungo periodo.

 

Конференция по запуску проекта LADDER – 5 июня, Брюссель

Конференция по запуску проекта LADDER пройдет 5 июня при Комитете Регионов в Брюсселе.

Конференция станет весьма важным поводом для того, чтобы обсудить то, как улучшить продвижение образования в интересах развития на местном уровне; насколько местные органы и организации гражданского общества (CSO) являются важными для образования в интересах развития и сенсибилизации общественности; как эффективно действовать на местном уровне, основываясь на общей системе суждений.

Среди участников мероприятия будут представители ассоциаций, местных органов и сетей гражданского общества, являющихся экспертами по данным вопросам. Принимающую организацию представляет г-н Ламберц, вице-президент Комитета Регионов.

Что такое LADDER – вкратце:

  • Общий европейский проект (3 года), руководимый ALDA
  • 26 партнеров и 20 членов из 18 стран ЕС 17 не членов ЕС
  • Сложная задача: образование в интересах развития и повышение уровня информированности (Development Education and Awareness Raising – DEAR)

LADDER это трехлетний проект, финансируемый ЕС, который стремится повысить воздействие местных органов на образование в интересах развития внутри Европейского Союза и стран соседства. При сотрудничестве с гражданским обществом местные органы способны стать катализаторами и руководить переменами в вовлеченных в этот процесс сообществах.

Конечными адресатами проекта являются граждане, с которыми в короткие сроки будет проведена работа по сенсибилизации по данной теме. Дальнейшая цель состоит в стимулировании действовать в сложных условиях, в борьбе с бедностью (в качестве промежуточной цели) и стремлению к изменениям качественного характера (в качестве окончательной цели).

Manifestacija će ugostiti relevantne predstavnike udruženja lokalnih vlasti, mreža organizacija civilnog društva i eksperata sa terena. G. Lambertz, potpredsednik Komiteta regiona će predstavljati instituciju domaćina.
LADDER projekat: O čemu se radi?
• Jedan zajednički EU projekat (3 godine) koordinira ALDA
• 26 partnera i 20 saradnika, koji dolaze iz 18 EU i 17 ne-EU zemalja
• Jedan veliki izazov: Razvoj, obrazovanje i podizanje svesti (DEAR)

LADDER, trogodišnji projekat sufinansiran od strane EU, nastoji da pojača delovanje lokalnih vlasti za razvoj, obrazovanje i podizanje svesti u EU i Evropskom susedstvu. Lokalne vlasti, u saradnji sa civilnim društvom, imaju značajan kapacitet multiplikatora i postaju pokretači promene.

Krajnji korisnici LADDER projekta su obični građani, jačanje njihove svesti o globalnim pitanjima (kratkoročno), promovsanje njihovog angažovanja u globalnim izazovima i iskorenjivanju siromaštva (srednjoročno) i dovođenje do promene njihovih stavova (dugoročno).

Italian stakeholders and a representative of ALDA discussed ECI revision

On 12th May, Aldo Xhani, Coordinator of ALDA Europe, participated in the meeting of the Italian Alliance for the European Year of Citizens, held in Rome, Italy, in order to launch the discussion on the process of possible revision concerning the implementation of Regulation No. 211/2011 on the European Citizens` Initiative (ECI).

***

ECI, an innovative tool introduced by the article 11 of the Treaty of Lisbon which came into force on 1st April 2012, gives citizens of the EU a unique opportunity to directly place their interests to the center of European policy-making by asking the European Commission to legislate on a matter of its competence. However, the instrument has shown severe limitations when it comes to its complicated procedure, low registration rate and insignificant real impact on European legislation.

The participants of the meeting discussed the Commission and the Ombudsman critical reports and also the draft report of the Committee on Constitutional Affairs and reform proposal presented by the Democracy International. Highlighted were particularly the issues of establishment and competencies of the Europe Direct Contact Centre; the need to provide more detailed guidelines on the interpretation of legal bases and more information on data protection obligations in each Member State; the European Economic and Social Committee’s proposal to provide free translations of ECI texts.

  • НПО East-West Mutual Understanding Вроцлав, Нижняя Силезия, Польша

Партнеры выбрали делегата, который будет руководить агентством, это г-жа Анжелика Пилипенко, и заместителя делегата, г-на Кирилла Баталова. 19 мая началась работа агентства, которое в скором времени сможет поддерживать свою деятельность посредством фандрайзинга.
Миссия агентства, 14°-го в сети ALDA, будет заключаться в том, чтобы продвигать диалог и сотрудничество между местными властями и гражданским обществом Днепропетровской области, продвигать эффективное управление и участие граждан, работать с ALDA в регионах Восточного Партнерства (ALDA открыла АDL в Армении, в Гюмри, и в Грузии, в Кутаиси, и работает над некоторыми проектами в Беларуси. Кроме того, ведется работа по открытию АDL в Молдове).
Нет необходимости подчеркивать, насколько центральной является роль Агентства местной демократии Днепропетровска, как для области, так и для всей страны, особенно в свете конфликта, который раздирает Украину. Все мы ожидаем, чтобы это присутствие внесло вклад в местное развитие, в эффективное управление и участие граждан. Надеемся, что это только первое из серии ADL в стране!

Speech by the Ambassador Mitja Drobnič, Head of the Delegation of the EU to Montenegro, at ALDA’s Conference “Capitalisation and relaunch”

On 9th May the Conference “Capitalisation and relaunch” took place in Podgorica, Montenegro, with the kind participation of Mr. Mitja Drobnič, Head of the Delegation of the EU to Montenegro.

***

It was a very important occasion to share with ALDA’s members, partners and associates the achievements gathered during 15 years of work on the field, and to discuss the step forwards  to improve the cooperation  between EU and its neighbourhood.

The Ambassador introduced his speech mentioning the 65th anniversary of the “Shuman Declaration”, that marked the beginning of the creation of Europe, and the 15th anniversary of ALDA, which works hard to achieve the same goal driven by the values of democracy and active participation.

He also underlined the importance of civil society organisations, that foster the cooperation between citizens and authorities, and the significance of programmes like “Europe for Citizens” that gives this  great network the opportunity to be involved in building Europe through exchanges, debates, reflections, learning and many other activities.

The 50 key European organisations, thanks to the help, support and resources provided by the European Commission are now able to cooperate, having also developed a strong and efficient dialogue. ALDA is among them, contributing in particular in developing citizens’ understanding of the EU, its history and diversity, but also fostering citizenship and improving conditions for civic and democratic participation at local, national and European level.

ALDA is grateful to Mr. Mitja Drobnič for his kind participation to the Conference and for his relevant words, hoping to have more opportunities to strengthen the cooperation with Montenegro, which already hosts one of the LDAs.
