***

During the meeting with the local government officials and a group of CSOs and youth associations, Mr. Davenport and the newly appointed Serbian Minister for EU integration, Ms Jadranka Joksimovic presented some of the most important new challenges in opening of the negotiation process and the role of CSOs, youth and local self-governments in the forthcoming EU accession phase. As emphasised in a vivid debate, implementation of Acquis at local level, as well as the consultation process as a necessary precondition for widest possible social consensus for the reforms to be undertaken. This is why, the role of CSOs is indispensable, while the city Subotica was mentioned as a positive example in Serbia of absorption of the EU funds from CBC Programmes in particular.

Visite de l’Ambassadeur de l’UE en Serbie à Subotica

L’ADL Subotica et le Conseil local du Mouvement européen en Serbie ont organisé la visite de M. Michael Davenport, Ambassadeur de l’UE en Serbie, à Subotica.

Lors de leur rencontre avec les représentants des autorités locales, d’organisations de la société civile et d’associations de jeunesse, M. Davenport et le nouveau Ministre serbe pour l’intégration européenne, Mme. Jadranka Joksimovic, ont présenté les principaux défis liés à l’ouverture des négociations pour l’accession à l’UE, et le rôle des participants dans ce cadre. Comme l’a mis en évidence un débat animé, la mise en œuvre de l’acquis communautaire au niveau local et les procédures de consultation sont des préconditions indispensables pour entreprendre des réformes rassemblant le plus large consensus possible. C’est pourquoi le rôle des organisations de la société civile est indispensable. A ce titre, la ville de Subotica a été mentionné comme un exemple d’efficacité dans l’utilisation des fonds communautaires, en particulier pour ses projets de coopération transfrontalière.

Suite à la réunion, M. Davenport a officiellement ouvert l’exposition « Mythes et préjugés – Perceptions réciproques de la Serbie et de l’UE », qui rassemble les bandes dessinées d’auteurs serbes sélectionnées dans le cadre d’un concours organisé par la Délégation de l’UE en Serbie.

 


Visita dell’Ambasciatore Europeo della Serbia a Subotica

L’Agenzia della Democrazia Locale della città di Subotica e il Consiglio Locale del Movimento Europeo della Serbia, hanno collaborato per organizzare la visita del Sig. Michael Davenport, ambasciatore serbo all’UE, nella città di Subotica.
Durante l’incontro con i funzionari dell’amministrazione locale, un gruppo di organizzazioni della società civile e delle associazioni giovanili, il signor Davenport e la signora Jadranka Joksimovic, Ministro Serbo per l’integrazione Europea recentemente eletto, hanno presentato alcune delle nuove sfide più importanti poste con l’apertura del processo di negoziazione e il ruolo di organizzazioni della società civile, giovani e amministrazioni autonome locali nella prossima fase di adesione all’UE.
Come sottolineato in un vivace dibattito, l’implementazione dell’ ‘Acquis’ a livello locale, così come il processo di consultazione, sono una condizione necessaria per un ampio consenso sociale, affinché vengano applicate le riforme. È per questo che il ruolo delle organizzazioni delle società civili è indispensabile. La città di Subotica è stata intanto citata come esempio positivo in Serbia per l’approvvigionamento dei fondi UE, in particolare per i programmi di cooperazione transfrontaliera.
Dopo il meeting, il Sig. Davenport ha ufficialmente aperto la mostra dei fumetti creati da autori serbi, selezionati tramite il concorso lanciato dalla delegazione UE in Serbia: “Miti e pregiudizi – come la Serbia e l’Europa si vedono a vicenda. La mostra è stata effettuata presso la Open University Gallery, e sarà possibile visitarla anche in occasione del tradizionale programma culturale della città: La Notte dei Musei.

 


Визит европейского посла Сербии в Суботицу

Агентство местной демократии города Суботица и Местный совет европейского движения Сербии, сотрудничали для организации визита господина Михаэля Давенпорта, сербского посла в ЕС, в город Суботица.
В ходе встречи со служащими местных органов власти, группой организаций гражданского общества и молодежных ассоциаций, господин Давенпорт и госпожа Ядранка Йоксимович, недавно избранный Сербский министр по Европейской интеграции, представили некоторые из наиболее важных новых сложных задач ЕС, возникших с открытием процесса переговоров и роль организаций гражданского общества, молодежи и независимой местной администрации в ближайшей фазе присоединения к ЕС.
Как было подчеркнуто в оживленном обсуждении, внедрение ‘достижений’ на местном уровне, также, как и процесс консультации, являются необходимым условием для широкого общественного согласия для того, чтобы реформы были применены. Именно поэтому роль организаций гражданского общества необходима. Город Суботица был упомянут как положительный пример в Сербии для снабжения фондов ЕС, в частности для программ приграничного сотрудничества.
После совещания господин Давенпорт официально открыл выставку комиксов, созданных сербскими авторами, отобранных на конкурсной основе, запущенного делегацией ЕС в Сербии: “Мифы и предрассудки – какими Сербия и Европа видят друг друга”. Выставка прошла в Open University Gallery, и будет возможно посетить ее и по случаю традиционной культурной программы города: Ночи музеев.

 


Ambasador EU u Srbiji posetio Suboticu

ALD Subotica i Lokalno veće Evropskog pokreta u Srbiji zajednički su organizovali posetu NJ.E. Majkla Devenporta, ambasadora EU u Srbiji.

Tokom sastanka sa predstavnicima lokalne vlasti i grupa OCD i omladinskih udruženja, g. Devenport i novoimenovani ministar Srbije za evropske integracije, g-đa Jadranka Joksimović predstavili su neke od najvažnijih novih izazova u otvaranju pregovaračkog procesa i uloge OCD, omladine i lokalne samouprave u narednoj fazi pristupanja EU. Kako je naglašeno u debati, sprovođenje pravnih tekovina EU na lokalnom nivou, kao i proces konsultacija kao neophodnog preduslova za najširi društveni konsenzus za reforme koje treba preduzeti. To je razlog zbog čega je uloga OCD neophodna, a grad Subotica pominje se kao pozitivan primer apsorpcije sredstava EU u Srbiji, posebno iz programa prekogranične saradnje.

Nakon sastanka g. Devenport je zvanično otvorio izložbu nagrađenih stripova srpskih autora izabranih na konkursu koji je pokrenula Delegacija EU u Srbiji: “Mitovi i predrasude – Kako Srbija i EU vide jedni druge”.

Barouf Orkestar – French musicians playing in the tradition of the Balkan countries

The Barouf Orkestar is an eclectic music band with a unique vision. Even though they come from Lower Normandy, France, this band is imprinted in the musical tradition of the Balkan countries.

***

Their goal is to participate in the preservation of a traditional musical heritage that comes from the Eastern and Central European countries, through practicing and sharing this music in France, but also through exchanges with musicians from the Balkans.

As a part of the Programme for Decentralized cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia, the Barouf Orkestar pursued their aim, and visited Macedonia from 28th April until 9th May. They started their music tour in the capital, the city of Skopje, with a small concert in the old city.  The public was danced and sang in the traditional brass music, wanting to hear and know more. Their tour continued in the city of Ohrid where they performed by the lake and held a concert in the cultural center of Ohrid, in the presence of a large number of young enthusiastic people and representatives of the municipality. Next on the list was the city of Bitola, where the band did an open air performance in front of the Yeni mosque. Their tour finished with a concert in the municipality Mogila, a small Macedonian town in the Pelagonia Region, where the traditional sounds of the Balkan enchanted the locals by the same familiar emotion.

Throughout their visit the Barouf Orkestar enriched their musical repertoire with traditional Macedonian music due to exchanges with local musicians. The “orkestar” continues their musical adventure to convey this musical heritage from the Balkans countries in Lower Normandy. To this effect, during the month of May several concerts are scheduled in Lower Normandy, such as the 33rd edition of the Jazz sous les pommiers Festival, in Coutances, France.

You can follow their activities on the Facebook page of Barouf Orkestar.

This project of exchanges and circulation of the musical heritage from the Eastern and Central European countries by the Barouf Orkestar is within the framework of Decentralized Cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia and includes several partners on both territories: the French Institute in Paris, the Conservatory of Caen la Mer, the association Balkans-Transit, the association Maison de l’Europe of Caen Low Normandy, the fanfare Blezeri under the tutelage of the association Alarm from Skopje, the association Lokomotiva from Skopje, the municipality Mogila and the Youth Cultural Center from Bitola.

The Programme for Decentralised cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia is coordinated by ALDA. For more information please visit the website of the cooperation or contact via email bn-mk@aldaintranet.org

Europe Day 2014: EU labyrinth comes to Serbia

The Local Democracy Agency in Subotica, in collaboration with the European House Hungary, and thanks to the support of the Provincial Secretariat of Youth and Sport of Vojvodina and the local governments, organized some public events for the Europe Day in the municipalities of Kanjiza and Subotica.

***

Respectively on the 8th and on the 9th of May, the main city squares of Kanjiza and Subotica became “home for a day” to a 100 square meters labyrinth installation. Hundreds of citizens attended the events and participated to the exploration of the setting.

Within the labyrinth, people were asked to answer 10 questions regarding the European Union, with the view to both examining their knowledge and contributing to a further learning and interest. Once the labyrinth “exploration” was successfully completed, people had the chance to receive a symbolic EU Passport and promotion and information material regarding several topics connected to the European Union, from working and studying opportunities to general descriptions of its history and institutions.

The event was pleasantly attended by a large number of young people coming from the local schools in both the municipalities. This, while showing the contemporary relevance of the topic, represents a solid proof of the attractive power that the EU can wield towards the younger generations.

European grouping of territorial cooperation “Euroregion without borders” enables stronger connection between regions and the development of common projects. From the Croatian accession to the EU, the borders between border areas of Croatia, Italy and Austria are becoming less relevant. Also, EGTC goals have in mind common services for the benefit of citizens. The importance of cooperation within the EGTC “Euroregion without borders” has great importance in the possibility to onnect the activities of two European macro-regional strategies, Danube strategy and Adriatic-Ionian strategy, which is still in development.

On this occasion, the decision of the accession of the Region of Istria was adopted, and therefore, Istria will became the first Croatian region joining this kind of regional cooperation.

On the first Assembly of EGTC held on Croatian territory, three of the members of ALDA participated – Region of Istria, Veneto Region and Autonomous region Friuli Venezia Giulia. It was attended by the President of the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia Debora Serracchiani, President of the Region of Carinthia Peter Kaiser and President of Veneto Region Luca Zaia.
