ALDA actively supporting the work of Civil Society Europe

ALDA’s Secretary General, Antonella Valmorbida and Aldo Xhani, Coordinator of the Citizenship Programme, attended the plenary meeting of the newly established Civil Society Europe (CSE) platform, held last 22 January in Brussels.

***

The event marked an important milestone of CSE’s life as it officialised the adoption of the association’s statute, its 2016 budget and the Advocacy Roadmap for 2016.

More than 35 European networks gathered together around two main principles of action enshrined in CSE’s Manifesto: create and enabling environment for horizontal exchanges between civil society organisations and movements across Europe and be influential in shaping the agenda on transversal issues of common interest for organised civil society in Europe.

Supporting the recognition of the added value of civil society organisations and strengthening their funding mechanisms is now needed more than ever. Populistic and radical movements are strengthening across Europe and core principles at the basis of the European project are put at risk. As one of the main stakeholders in the European Year of Citizens Alliance 2013, ALDA confirmed its strong support and commitment to the development of CSE by bringing in its 15 year expertise in the field of active citizenship and good governance at local level.

During the meeting, the partners discussed the challenges and the results obtained in each country. Through evaluation of the year 2015, they adopted the Regional Network Strategy.

The next day, during a public promotion at the EU Info Centre in Skopje, the project was presented in front of the local public, authorities, and youth experts. The partners pointed out that the local authorities are crucial stakeholder in the public policies and the youth must have a key role in their creation. They each discussed the youth status in their respective countries, and the impact of the project on local level. The Youth Workers also addressed the public, and shared their Job shadowing experiences. The presentation of the Network finished with perspectives for the future and the new partnerships that emerged from the year one.
