ALDA WILL COORDINATE THE BIRTH OF A PERMANENT CONFERENCE OF MUNICIPALITIES OF CROATIAN AND SLOVENIAN ISTRIA (HR) AND TRIESTE (I)

Identify common problems and try to solve them together. This is what emerged in the recent meeting between the mayors of the Istrian area, on the Croatian, Slovenian and Italian side, held in Grisignana, organised by LDA of Verteneglio.
After an initial phase coordinated by ALDA the conference should be independent and will ask, as already happened in other parts of Europe, European funds to be able to realize projects.The proposal was made by the President of the Istria Region, Ivan Jakovčić, representing all the Mayors of Istria.
Create a non-governmental organisation, not competing with national institutions in policy-making, is the idea of Jakovčić, who will write a draft document that mayors should adopt to form this organisation that may be called “Standing Conference of Municipalities in Istria and Trieste”.
The Vice President of ALDA, Alessandro Perelli and the delegate of the LDA Verteneglio-Brtonigla, Umberto Ademollo, stressed the need of cross-border cooperation through joint actions to solve the problems of the population that are the same in all the municipalities. A collaboration at the local level that will be even more facilitated by the now upcoming accession of Croatia to the European Union as a Member State.
“We must focus on the practical problems of our people, as the highway to be completed, the possibility of obtaining care hospital in Izola and why not in Trieste, a simplification for students across borders and breaking down barriers in entrepreneurship, especially for young people” said the mayor of Grisignana, Rino Dunis.
Fully agreed with these themes the other mayors attending the meeting: Edi Andreašić (Buie), Anteo Milos (Cittanova), Dorijano Labinjan (Verteneglio) e Aleksandar Krt (Portole), representing Croatian Municipalities, Danijel Cep, Deputy Mayor of Capodistria, Peter Bossman (Pirano) and Igor Kolenc (Isola) representing Slovenian Municipalities and Nerio Nesladek (Muggia) and Premolin Fulvia, (San Dorligo della Valle – Dolina) representing Italian Municipalities.
Also the Mayor of Trieste, Roberto Cosolini, absent for institutional commitments, is available to participate in the initiative.
The Consul of Italy in Rijeka, Renato Cianfarani, stressed the need of collaboration between towns with a story and a social culture so close. Also the Honorary Vice-Consul of Italy in Buie, Giuseppina Rajko attended the meeting.

«L'île» comme facteur de développement durable

Projet sous-financé TANDEM à Vezhny: «Développement d'un mini sanctuaire -« L'île »comme facteur de développement durable», en novembre 2012.


ALDA WELCOMES MONTENEGRO IN THE PROGRAMME “EUROPE FOR CITIZENS”

On October 24 Director General of DG for Communication of the European Commission Mr. Gregory Paulger signed the Memorandum of Understanding on the participation of Montenegro in the programme Europe for Citizens.
ALDA is particularly happy to acknowledge the entrance of Montenegro in the Programme.

ALDA, in fact, represents one of the main stakeholders of the Programme at the European level and has a specific focus on Western Balkans, where it has been active since early nineties to promote local democracy (mainly through its local democracy agencies established on the field), good governance and citizen participation.
Montenegrian civil society organisations of all walks of life, local and municipal authorities, museums and memorials among others can thus fully participate in all the actions of the Europe for Citizens programme. Their participation in the programme will provide an important opportunity to forge partnerships with other civil society organisations in the European Union and to engage in European projects of various kinds.
ALDA will seize this opportunity to further strengthen and cooperate with the Local Democracy Agency Montenegro, based in Niksic, and active since 2001 and committed to the promotion of democracy and citizen participation in the whole country.
When Serbia signs the Memorandum of Understanding on November 9 as foreseen the Europe for Citizens programme will cover all the countries of Western Balkan. This will represent both an outcome and a new challenge for the Association of Local Democracy Agencies: on one hand, it is an output which rewards the long-lasting work of ALDA and of the LDAs in the field of local democracy and citizen participation in the Balkans; on the other hand, it opens new frontiers of cooperation for further supporting the full integration of Western Balkans in the EU.
