On July 21 2023, the ALDA Coordination Board, composed of ALDA Secretary General, Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida, the Director of Programmes and Corporate Strategy, Mr. Marco Boaria and the ALDA Office Directors and Heads of Departments and Regional Units, met the newly elected Mayor of Vicenza, Mr. Giacomo Possamai.
The meeting, which took place in the beautiful framework of ‘Sala degli Stucchi’ in Palazzo Trissino (Italy), was aimed at discussing the partnership and future collaboration between the two entities, with the willingness of creating a strong base to build a resilient and long-lasting cooperation.
ALDA firmly believes that cooperation between the two entities can lead to a strengthening of the participatory base at the local level
ALDA, which has offices in Europe and its neighbourhood including in Italy, precisely in Vicenza, is very active in the local context with projects, activities and initiatives that not only aim to promote local democracy, good governance and citizen participation, but touch on a wide range of topics including urban regeneration, migration and land valorisation.
With the establishment of ALDA Italia APS (Associazione di Promozione Sociale) the Association’s presence in the local area has increased through the implementation of several projects directly involving citizens and promoting local territorial development, such as Alta Via della Grande Guerra and HILL projects.
ALDA firmly believes that cooperation between the two entities can lead to a strengthening of the participatory base at the local level.
Joining synergies to address everyday local challenges such as increased migration flows, reduction of citizen participation in public life and more, represents the key for a future where democracy and good governance are always more present and resilient.
