For several years now, ALDA has been one of the beneficiaries of the operating grant of the “Europe for Citizens” programme of the EACEA – Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Union.

Thus, we are thrilled to announce that, again this year, ALDA has been confirmed beneficiary of the operating grant of the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) of the European Union!

The CERV stems from the fusion of the previous programmes “Europe for Citizens” and “Rights, Equality and Citizens Programme”, and aims to protect and promote rights and values as layed down in the EU Treaties and the Charter of Fundamental Rights in particular by supporting civil society organisations active at local, regional, national and transnational level.

This grant proves the effectiveness of ALDA’s actions for the promotion of democracy and citizens participation in Europe and beyond

The recently awarded operating grant is specifically designated for networks, organisations, or think tanks that contribute to achieving programme objectives. This includes activities such as training, capacity building, conferences, mutual learning, cooperation, awareness-raising, communication, and dissemination efforts.

The entire ALDA community is proud to once again be among the select recipients, underscoring the effectiveness of ALDA’s endeavors in advancing democracy and citizen participation throughout Europe.

This presents both a significant opportunity and a profound responsibility. ALDA is prepared to step up as a catalyst for participation, democracy, and European values more than ever before, making a substantial contribution to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Agenda 2030.
