ALDA is proud to report about an active stance of Patras Municipality (Greece) in ARRIVAL CITIES project. Patras Municipality, member of ALDA, confirms its commitment in supporting the values of democracy and citizen participation on the local level.

 ***

The European Anti-Racism Week 2017 provided an excellent opportunity to raise an awareness of importance ARRIVAL CITIES project has in building inclusive societies. “Patras Municipal Development Enterprise for Planning & Development-ADEP SA” (being the project partner organisation) organised an event where various representatives from education, culture, business, consulting, civil society sectors had the opportunity to find out more about the progress of project implementation and how this project is linked with the intercultural strategy of the city and with the values of the European Anti-Racism Week.

The starting speech was delivered by Mrs Ira KOURI, President of “Patras Park of Educational Activities” referring to the importance of intercultural dialogue and the management of intercultural character of a city for the benefit of ALL its citizens. Transferring the greetings of the Mayor of Patras, Mr Kostas Peletides, she declared the commitment of the city in protecting human rights, respecting equality and provide platforms for co-creation for all. This was followed by the speech of Mrs. Chrissa Geraga, being the Head of the Planning Department and Networking of ADEP SA and local scientific coordinator of ARRIVAL CITIES in Patras, with a very focused presentation on the project, the principles of participatory planning and the benefits of networking through information and exchange of good practices at transnational level.

Then activities were implemented by the migrants associations, namely Association of Russian Community in cooperation with Institute of Intercultural Relations, Association of Romanian Community, UNIONLATINA and Association of Albanian Community (EMIGRANTI). Emphasis was put on the involvement of youngsters who exploited theatre, music, dance and narration presenting stories related to solidarity, equality, friendship, diversity as well as important information on the countries of origin. A celebration spirit embraced the whole event revealing dynamism and enthusiasm of expression. The discussion that followed focused on types of co-creation, on the conduction of the local action plan and on the communication means of ARRIVAL CITIES project. A promise was made for maintaining active involvement at local level and exploiting the precious transnational project dimension.

ARRIVAL CITIES material is already posted on the project site and is available to everyone. Subscribing to the newsletter provides further information and possibility for promoting related actions. At the same time, the project is active with groups in social media such as facebook (Arrival Cities Network) and twitter (@arrivalcities) giving the opportunity to anyone who wishes to participate electronically, encouraging awareness and cooperation. The project is funded by the URBACT III program (2014-2020), under axe 1.1.2 “To improve the design of sustainable urban strategies and action plans in cities”

The meeting mobilized more than 160 representatives from civil society organisations (CSOs), associations of Local Authorities (LAs) and representatives from the European Commission and EU Member States. The exchange was focused around two clusters:

It was aimed to let the CSOs from South-East Europe countries, undergoing the accession negotiation process with the EU, share their experiences and also learn from the CSOs and LAs of the EU and partner countries, as well as European institutions. As a result, the importance of two listed below was especially emphasised:

  • Approach of International decentralised co-operation and inclusive partnerships for development;

ALDA Secretary General Antonella Valmorbida, together with Governing Board Member Francesco Zarzana, President of the cultural Association Progettarte, and European Citizenship programmes Coordinator Aldo Xhani, are currently in Rome, Italy, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome by attending events organised by European Movement International and by CIME, its Italian council.

Other Members of ALDA are also taking parts in the events: in order to safeguard the European project, ALDA promoted a strong representation of its 250 members and local authorities with whom they cooperate; local authorities and citizens working together for the good of their communities represent, in fact, the cornerstone for the Europe we want.

ALDA considered the participation in the march that will be held tomorrow a crucial opportunity to reaffirm its support for the European project, with the awareness that the related events represent a moment of mutual understanding and debate on issues of citizen participation, good governance and the role of local authorities in the current European context.

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, ALDA also adopted the statement “The Europe we want: Just, Sustainable, Democratic and Inclusive”, drafted on the initiative of WWF, ETUC, CONCORD, European Movement International, European Women’s Lobby and European Youth Forum, which reminds us how far Europe has come since 1957, and how far we all wish to reach a peaceful and united future. This is a common path to be covered by sharing the values at the very heart of Europe, namely democracy and participation, equality and social justice, solidarity and sustainability, respect for the rule of law and human rights.

Through this Statement, which invites all of us to listen to the European people in order to achieve a better future, ALDA also wanted to confirm its commitment and dedication to the project “Europe for Citizens – One program, 500 million voices!“, a program that makes the voice of the European people heard.
