Despite the restrictions, ALDA goes on with the organisation of training sessions to support and empower our members and partners.
Last February 4th, 2021, our colleague and expert trainer Anna Ditta, led a virtual course on the theme “The New Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027: What opportunities?”, addressed to the members’ network of the Management Support Programme of the Anna Lindh Foundation (FAL), ALDA’s French member and supported by the Foundation’s French Network.
This hybrid training, with participants attending on-site in Strasbourg and others connected online, aimed to give information about the new EU Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 and the priorities set by the European Union through the different funding programmes.
A partnership stimulating contacts with organisations working in all corners of the Mediterranean, fostering cooperation activities and joint advocacy
The training was conducted in two stages: a first theoretical part on negotiations, priorities and programmes, followed by a second practical part, where attendees were divided in sub-groups, thus facilitating the learning and the acquainting with project development tools. The training allowed good interaction among participants, both online and on-site, and ALDA’s trainers and facilitators. The aim of this practical exercise was to create cohesion and develop connections between the representatives of the associations.
After the training, a presentation of the European Parliament was given by Mrs Stina Stangren, Head of Unit for Visits to the Parliament. Thus, attended had the opportunity to ask more specific questions about the work of the Parliament, but also about the role of citizens within the institution.
