Podcast with the Belgian MEP, Mrs Maria Arena: “We have a social challenge in order to ensure the future of our citizens”

On February, 2 2021 the one-hour online conference “Doing Development Democratically: a Conversation with Jutta Urpilainen” was live-streamed. The occasion served to launch the European Democracy Hub—a new platform for research-based discussion on European democracy support, programming, and policy, aiming at engaging stakeholders and offering solutions to democratic challenges. The online conference was moderated by Mr Richard Youngs, from Carnegie Europe, which together with one of the ALDA’s members, the الشراكة الأوروبية من أجل الديمقراطية, co-organized the event.

Mr Ken Godfrey, European Partnership for Democracy Executive Director, introduced the discussion by highlighting how the European Democracy Hub is the result of the cooperation between the two parties, and provides an in-depth analysis and research about democracy. Then, he stressed out the importance of considering how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect democracies, parliaments and freedom of expression on worldwide scale. Therefore, the essential role of the hub in this realm.

Mr. Godfrey enhanced the role of this working-group, set up by prominent academics, practitioners and policy makers to support countries which have some weaknesses in their democracy systems. He recalled, for example, the military coup في Myanmar, driving the attention on the full commitment of the working-group to jointly boost democracy around the world.

A key moment was the European Commissioner for International Partnerships Jutta Urpilainen’s speech. She addressed all her encouragement in the launch of the European Democracy Hub, underlining the importance of being resilient in crisis-period such as the one caused by the pandemic. She also remarked how we have been all witnesses, in certain parts of the World, of human rights violations, and of governments using their powers to silent the oppositions, making the pandemic as an excuse. Furthermore, she highlighted how women and children are now paying the highest price of this pandemic. As a Commissioner, she assured that the EU will continue to ensure inclusivity, sustainability, fairness and fundamental values during our global recovery.

National & Local Trainings on DEAR: LADDER consortium in action!

Within the LADDER project, the 10 Co-applicants – EGTC Amphictyony (اليونان) LALRG – the Association of Local and Regional Authorities (Latvia), Donegal County Council (Ireland), TECLA – Association per la cooperazione transazionale, locale ed europea (إيطاليا), URC Poland – Union of Rural Communes of the Republic of Poland (Poland), UTC Slovakia – Union of Towns and Cities of Slovakia (Slovakia), مجلس محلي بيرغو (Malta), NAMRB – National Association of Municipalities in the Republic of Bulgaria (بلغاريا), Municipality of Vejle (Denmark) and CAC – Croatian Association of Counties (Croatia) – are in charge of implementing local and national trainings on DEAR (Development Education and Awareness Raising) in their respective countries.

***

A large number of these trainings already took place all around Europe. In total around one thousand participants attended the different two-day trainings. 45 trainings – 15 at national level and 25 at local level – have been implemented on issues related to development education, empowerment of local authorities and civil society organizations, raising awareness and engaging citizens in global issues, improving methods in non-formal education.

These trainings especially aim to familiarize participants with values of LADDER project and the rationale behind it, as well as with the DEAR approach and its possible implementation at grass roots level, with the intention of building a network of social links that contribute to meeting SDGs at local level.

The trainings were organised around different activities, such as ice-breakers, workshops, open discussions, team plays, etc. and were sometimes the occasion to develop innovative training materials, such as the educational board game elaborated by URC Poland, that was created in order to ensure that the content of local trainings could have been both attractive and informative.

All trainings were implemented in 2015 and in the first half of 2016, and 15 additional local trainings and 5 national trainings will take place before the end of the year.

Thus, once all national and local trainings are implemented, participants will be approximately 2600 people.

Besides, 10 focus groups will be organized in the second part of 2016 by Category A co-applicants, which will be attended by a total of 200 participants.  These focus groups will consist in informal groups of discussion that will reflect on development education, especially debating on approaches, methodologies and tools that are used or can be developed at national/local levels. These events will also provide an accurate picture of the DEAR situation at a national and local level in the 10 countries involved, and will bring to the drafting of recommendations to improve the implementation of DEAR strategies in the country concerned.

The Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO) in the Western Balkans has been launched

Sharing common challenges, the Western Balkans’ societies decided to work together in order to empower young people. Growing up in a turbulent post-war environment, youth in the region is facing prejudice and intolerance, massive unemployment and important brain-drain.

***
To tackle these issues, six Western Balkan States (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia) have decided to take part in a regional initiative in order to promote reconciliation and cooperation between the youth in the region. On 4th of July, their heads of States met in Paris to sign the founding document of the Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO) during the Western Balkan Summit, gathering German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President François Hollande, Austria’s Chancellor and Italy’s Finance Minister, as well as the Western Balkan leaders, who discussed key topics including migration policy, security and economic cooperation.
The establishment of the Regional Youth Exchange Office (RYCO) is inspired in the experience of the Franco-German Youth Office, to develop new relationships and improve cooperation projects. Based in Tirana (with one local branch per country), and operational in January 2017, RYCO will implement joint programmes for young people focusing on the principles of democratic governance, sustainable economic development, education and innovation.
The equal participation of civil society organisations and governments is a crucial approach to ensure an inclusive process and create adjusted projects and synergies. ALDA Skopje’s office and the members of Local Democracy Agencies from the Balkans participated in national consultations and in local working groups, discussing the implementation of this structure. ALDA welcomes this major initiative opening perspectives for Balkans Youth, and will continue to support regional cooperation and reconciliation in the Western Balkans as one of its main missions since its creation.

Letter of condolences to all French members and friends of ALDA after the attack in Nice

The President Oriano Otočan, the Governing Board, the Secretary General Antonella Valmorbida, and all the staff of ALDA want to express the deep sadness and the sincere condolences to all French members and friends of ALDA for the attack of 14 July in Nice.

***
This is just the latest tragedy within the complex and particularly sensitive frame of Europe. A symbolically and practically cruel crime inflicted in a specific occasion, on a specific day: the 14 July, the celebration of freedom, brotherhood and equality, main pillars of the French of Republic, as well as of the EU. Citizens are the first affected by this cruel and senseless violence, and the institutions are constantly struggling to ensure safety. Terrorism is a threat to freedom, to democracy, to human rights and tolerance.
ALDA has been supporting those values in all its activities, with the desire of living together in a free and tolerant society. We renew our commitment to daily work on these values, and we will certainly support cities and regions to respond to the situation with determination and strength, assisting them in these difficult times.
Our Association knows which are the results of war and violence, since we experienced them in many of the places where our activities are run, and that is why cooperation and conflicts’ resolution are still key actions in our vision.
