In Ventotene with the Spinelli Institute: solidarity VS nationalism

On September 3rd and 4th, 2020, ALDA Secretary General Antonella Valmorbida was honoured to participate to the Annual Federalist Training Seminar of the Spinelli Institute for Federalist Studies in Ventotene (Italy), together with the European Federalist Movement Italy and Europe. While she was an observer on the first day, she took the floor at the seminar on “European Solidarity vs Nationalism: towards political union” on the second day.

“Federalism in Europe and in the world. From the Monetary Union to the United States of Europe” was the title of this 39th edition of the event on the island where the Manifesto that inspired European Unity was written. Mrs Valmorbida’s intervention focused on solidarity being at the very heart of the European project and needing to be given priority not just in Covid-19 times or more generally in times of emergency, but rather as a matter of habit and constance.

It is a question of individual wellbeing within a wider context“, she reminded; “institutional and political work must go hand in hand with a sense of citizenship, of culture and of common destiny and identity“. She proceeded to detail how the European project should be interpreted at the local level, too, and brought closer to citizens’ common sense, which can be distant from the great political dynamics but still very important. Such common sense of destiny, in fact, should be based on a series of micro-actions that, together, become macro: “ALDA works on a citizen dimension, of diffusion and information. Promoting citizenship, involvement, an idea of collective home through concrete practices: this is what we do together with local entities, municipalities and communities that share the same values“.

Of course, finding unanimity on complex topics is never easy when you involve masses of people, but after all “a citizen who’s active in their community is a citizen who’s active in the growth of Europe“. So on we go, with the strong belief that it is in the intimacy of local communities that each citizen’s vote is elaborated.

Art, theatre and improvisation have a better impact with children

For many of us, the summer 2020 will be remembered as a summer like no other in recent history. Despite the changes
caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, luckily the implementation of projects’ activities didn’t stop.
Therefore, the association DRPDNM from Novo Mesto (https://www.facebook.com/DRPDNM), Slovenia, organized safe
outdoors events involving local youth, all within the framework of the project IMPACT. Together with the local partner
Association for development of creative movement ‘Arabeska’, several workshops were held, which saw the participation of
immigrant and Roma children. The activity had an overall positive impact on the community, since being together help
boosting the self-esteem and provide a sense of meaning. The youngsters were able to express their passion for art and to
develop their artistic competencies, as also confirmed by Klara Magič Luneai, who joined the workshops: “Artistic expression
in this way infuses self-confidence and is available as creative expression which has a positive impact on self-esteem.’’
The workshops took place on different locations and most of the activities were performed through the technique of
improvisation, which was taught to children, thus enabling them to freely express feelings and emotions. A similar activity
was organised during last year’s training in Italy, but as a matter of fact, working with children can give better results as they
generally are more keen on building trust and connection within a given group of people.
Further workshop session will be prepared and implement during the autumn 2020,… stay tuned!

Inspiring new topics in the ALDA Talks 2020-2021: discover the calendar and register now

After the success of the first ALDATalks series (https://www.alda-europe.eu/newSite/news_dett.php?id=2568), we are glad to
announce the launch of the 2020-2021 edition, with many exciting new topics to debate! An inside look at the core of our
projects while sharing the expertise of our members and partners. Want to discover more? Have a look at our calendar!
Throughout the programme, the speakers will touch upon several different subjects mostly related to the focus of projects
and activities that we are running together with our network. With the aim to share ideas and best practices, we will discuss
inclusion in different spheres of life, gender equality, but also art as a channel to promote social inclusion and revitalize the
cities we live in. In an investigation of the extremely current topics of fake news & digital literacy, we will share tools to raise
awareness on online information; and, by delving into the topic of clean energy and circular economy, our speakers will
analyse the means we have at hand to reduce waste and consumption in order to make our planet a better place.
This new webinar series will be an excellent opportunity for all speakers and participants to explore best practices as well as
the achievements obtained by our members and networks through different experiences; and at the end of each talk we’ll
give YOU the floor, for you to ask your questions and offer your inputs and opinions on the subject!
So… get ready to meet us online! Our first new ALDAtalk webinar will take place on September 22nd at 3pm CEST to
learn about a couple of great practices by friendly cities on the topic of migrants’ inclusion, designed and implemented by two
partners of the EPIC project: Solidaridad Sin Fronteras (https://www.ssf.org.es/es/quienes-somos) (SSF) and KITEV
(https://kitev.de/).

After a presentation of the project European Platform of Integrating Cities (EPIC) , which addresses the challenges of the integration of migrants by targetingmedium-sized cities that have the need to develop expertise in different areas, SSF will present the services, managed incollaboration with the Municipality of Alcorcon, designed to implement the job employment rate within migrants’communities. Project coordinator Gianna Gardeweg of KITEV will then add to the discussion by explaining how it is possibleto foster civic cohesion through the example of their project with the Free University Oberhausen, “Giving power to thepeople”, a sociocultural initiative run by citizens and migrants who can propose courses and lessons thus creating a freeuniversity; and a Q&A session will follow.(https://www.aldaeurope. eu/newSite/project_dett.php?ID=153) 

Looking forward to meeting you online very soon!

Throughout the programme, the speakers will touch upon several different subjects mostly related to the focus of projects and activities that we are running together with our network. With the aim to share ideas and best practices, we will discuss inclusion in different spheres of life, gender equality, but also art as a channel to promote social inclusion and revitalize the cities we live in. In an investigation of the extremely current topics of fake news & digital literacy, we will share tools to raise awareness on online information; and, by delving into the topic of clean energy and circular economy, our speakers will analyse the means we have at hand to reduce waste and consumption in order to make our planet a better place.

This new webinar series will be an excellent opportunity for all speakers and participants to explore best practices as well as the achievements obtained by our members and networks through different experiences; and at the end of each talk we’ll give YOU the floor, for you to ask your questions and offer your inputs and opinions on the subject!

So… get ready to meet us online! Our first new ALDAtalk webinar will take place on September 22nd at 3pm CEST to learn about a couple of great practices by friendly cities on the topic of migrants’ inclusion, designed and implemented by two partners of the EPIC project: Solidaridad Sin Fronteras (SSF) and KITEV.

After a presentation of the project European Platform of Integrating Cities (EPIC), which addresses the challenges of the integration of migrants by targeting medium-sized cities that have the need to develop expertise in different areas, SSF will present the services, managed in collaboration with the Municipality of Alcorcon, designed to implement the job employment rate within migrants’ communities. Project coordinator Gianna Gardeweg of KITEV will then add to the discussion by explaining how it is possible to foster civic cohesion through the example of their project with the Free University Oberhausen, “Giving power to the people”, a sociocultural initiative run by citizens and migrants who can propose courses and lessons thus creating a free university; and a Q&A session will follow.

Looking forward to meeting you online very soon!
