The final event of the project “STAND.UP: Strengthening Twinning and Networking for Development Agreements. United in Partnership” will be held in Malta, on 16-17 of January 2012.
STAND.UP, implemented by ALDA in partnership with 17 international partners, aims to promote citizen participation and interaction with local and European institutions, through the methodology of town twinning.
The International Conference “Social Integration and Gender Equality through a Good Local Governmental System” will see the participation of 80 representatives of Local Authorities and Civil Society Organizations coming from 11 countries of the enlarged Europe. It will be a unique opportunity to discuss the role of LAs and CSOs in promoting jointly activities to foster social inclusion, in particular migrants’ inclusion in local life, and gender equality at the local level.
During the Conference it will be possible to compare Malta and Puglia experiences on welcoming migrants coming from North Africa. Moreover, the presence of local and international organisation promoting gender equality will encourage local Mayors to share their experiences with their counterparts from other European countries.
As final part of the event a steering committee among the project partners will be held to plan the follow up of the project.
