Tourism and Culture: key areas of the spring activities for the twin-territories of Normandy and Macedonia

March and April 2016 were rich in events for local authorities of Normandy and Macedonia. In these last two months, three activities took place focused on the topics of tourism, culture and cultural heritage in Normandy and Macedonia.

***
In the end of March, the representatives of the Regional Center for Development of Pelagonija visited their partners of the commune Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy. The objective of this visit was to gain from the extensive expertise that Normandy has on the topic of cultural heritage: the tools for promotion and for development of touristic attractiveness of the territory. While in Normandy, the representatives from Pelagonija presented their new smartphone application for tourists. This application is dedicated to the tourists wishing to visit the Baba Montain and its monasteries in the Pelagonija Region in Macedonia. This tool has been created with the support of the cooperation between Normandy and Macedonia.

In the beginning of April, the municipality of Berovo welcomed a group of hikers from their partners, the Municipality of Livarot. This activity is a new step in the cooperation between Livarot and Berovo, who are already working together for many years on the promotion of their territories on the topic of culture, cultural heritage and agriculture as well as the production of cheese which is a common specialty in both territories.

The last activity of April 2016 in the framework of twinning towns of the cooperation between Normandy and Macedonia, was the launch of the new “Strategy for integrated protection of the architectural heritage of the old town of Ohrid”. This strategy is the result of a 3-year project implemented by the Municipality of Ohrid. This strategy was created due to fruitful exchanges of experiences between Ohrid and their partners, the Municipality of Caen, Normandy. The Municipality of Caen is currently implementing their own strategy and it was a good oportunity to share their good practices as well as the difficulties they had to face.

These activities are representative of the Cooperation’s inclusiveness and ability to develop promising fields of the territories through good practice sharing and exchanges of experience.

Seminar on “How has the crisis changed the symbolic context of societies and of European identities?” in the framework of the project Re.Cri.Re

On 28 April,   Mr Alfonso Santarpia, lecturer at the University of Aix-en-Provence and French partner of the Re.Cri.Re consortium, presented the project at Maison de la Recherche Schuman in the context of the seminar “How has the crisis changed the symbolic context of societies and of European identities?”.

***

The seminar brought together a varied group of participants including journalists, policy-makers, students, teachers, and members of political, social or cultural associations interested in the topic of European identity.

This event represented indeed the perfect occasion to disseminate information about Re.Cri.Re, which has precisely the goal of understanding the impact of the current socio-economic situation on the way people perceive the place they live in, to eventually be able to give policy-makers concrete advice on how to improve the effectiveness of their future actions at the local, national and European level.

Re.Cri.Re is a three-year project funded under the call “Europe in a changing world – Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies” in the framework of EU Programme Horizon 2020, and was launched in May 2015 by the European Association for Local Democracy in cooperation with a consortium of 15 universities across Europe.

Useful links:

Further information about Re.Cri.Re. can be found on ALDA’s website as well as on the project’s official website.

Contribute to the success of the project by filling in and disseminating Re.Cri.Re’s questionnaire on how people represent the space they live in and how these representations are linked to their way of thinking and feeling. The questionnaire is anonymous and only takes ten minutes to complete!

  • The “Med-Path strategic document”, drafted by Mr. Giordano, representative of the Italian organisation COPPEM, aiming at providing a clear direction and a goal to the Med Path, including concrete actions that the Med Path can undertake in the two coming years.

The event saw the participation of several members of the Med Path, coming from both sides of the Mediterranean, and many young activists of Lam Echaml association. The work of ALDA, the strong cooperation with the partners, the LADDER project and the specific role of the LADDER Med Path were introduced during the opening of the event by Mr. Moncef Ben Slimane, President of Lam Echaml, Ms. Elena Debonis, representative of ALDA, and Mr. Natale Giordano, representative of COPPEM.

The Mediterranean Charter was then further analysed, gathering the opinion and inputs of the participants, and improved according to the main objectives the charter intend to stress at local, national and international levels: the valorisation of a common and shared Mediterranean identity, the role of LAs and CSOs in the realisation of the common goals of development in the respect of Human Rights and cultural differences considering the current difficulties that are still affecting the Mediterranean area, but also the actions of raising awareness about the processes of democratisation and decentralisation.

During the second session of the event, the representatives of the Med Path discussed about the “Med-Path strategic document” that represents a sort of action plan including concrete actions that need to be implemented in the Mediterranean area in line with the objectives of the LADDER project. During this brainstorming session, several topics reflecting the current difficulties were mentioned, such as youth, unemployment, migration, mobility, and many more. In this framework, participants discussed on the way Development Education and Awareness Raising could impact positively these issues.

The whole event represented an important moment of exchange where the participation of young activists played a relevant role, bringing new ideas and points of view of a generation particularly impacted by the situation and challenges of the Mediterranean area.

The new version of the two documents, i.e. the Mediterranean Charter of Democracy and Local Autonomy and the Med Path strategic documents will be shared with the Med Path members who were not able to attend the meeting in Tunis in order for them to bring their contributions. Then, the new draft versions will be definitely adopted during the next Med Path meeting that will be held in Paris on 13 May, during the 4th Steering Committee of the LADDER Project.

On 29 April 2016, an important meeting of the Med Path of LADDER project took place in Tunis, in order to further develop two key documents drafted by the coordinators of the group focusing on the Mediterranean area, Mr. Ben Slimane and Mr. Giordano.

  • The “CHARMEDAL : Mediterranean Charter of Democracy and Local Autonomy”, drafted by Mr. Moncef Ben Slimane, President of the Tunisian Association Lam Echaml, aiming at defining the principles and new perspectives for the future on both sides of the Mediterranean, in the field of democracy and local autonomy;
  • The “Med-Path strategic document”, drafted by Mr. Giordano, representative of the Italian organisation COPPEM, aiming at providing a clear direction and a goal to the Med Path, including concrete actions that the Med Path can undertake in the two coming years.
