From February 4th to 6th, 2020, a series of training activities took place in the City Hall of the Comrat Municipality, in the Gagauz Autonomy, Moldova.

The event, which was presented and led by ALDA Secretary-General Antonella Valmorbida, was well attended by public officials of the city hall, including the city architect, the land engineer and the responsible for attracting investments among others; as well as municipal councilors and representatives of the local civil society.

The training sessions covered participatory democracy theory; a presentation of different levels of participation and policy making; information and outreach activities; consultation methods; good practices and tips.

As the participants expressed their views on the addressed issues, each topic was intensely debated: this then resulted in the collective drafting of an elaborate action plan which saw everybody’s contribution to improve the ecological situation of the municipality.

أ national conference is likely to be organised later in 2020 with the aim to refer to the results of the training and translate them into tangible results for the communities of Cimișlia and Comrat. All participants to the 3-day course highly appreciated its organisation, contents and methods and were thankful for the opportunity, which saw a substantial action of support from the Comrat Town Hall.

The project “Empowering local authorities and civil society to deliver solutions with participatory democracy” is implemented thanks to the مؤسسة كونراد أديناور with the support of ALDA and of the AGREED project of the European Commission.
