Join the Elections to create a new Europe - The future is in our hands now

Do you believe in the European values of dignity and human rights, democracy, freedom, equality and legality? At ALDA yes, we do, and we are convinced that it is worth acting for these principles now.

When? At the next European elections, which will take place from 23 to 26 May 2019, and which will be crucial for the future of the European project – for our future. Across Europe, citizens aged 18 will be called to vote to elect representatives to the European Parliament, and for thousands of them it will be their first opportunity to exercise their right to vote. We need you, to reach out to young voters and make clear to them what is at stake in these consultations, how to vote and its consequences.

To do this, ALDA, in collaboration with ENAIP – national network of services for training and employment, is offering 6 grants of 300 € each to young people up to 30 years old residing in Italy for the realization of initiatives aimed at raising awareness among young people about the upcoming European elections.

How? We don’t need to be superheroes to make a difference, but we can leave our mark through street actions, online campaigns, videos, local events, round tables, youth forums, flyers and posters, and so on. These actions will ideally take place between March and mid-May 2019.

Do you have a great idea on how to encourage the youth in your community to vote? Are you an Italian resident and between the ages of 18 and 30?

Send an outline of your initiative in PDF (max. 2 pages) to irene.zanetti@aldaintranet.org by March 12, 2019, clearly explaining:

– how many people you will reach and through which modalities
– the expected costs to implement the action (you will need to send us justifications of costs incurred).

Whether you want to change things or you are satisfied with the current situation, the European elections are the opportunity to make your voice heard! Did you know that the European Parliament is the only European institution directly elected by the citizens? And did you know that the European Parliament represents European citizens as such?

We are counting on you so that young Europeans can have their say, for a stronger Europe!

The European Union is the answer for Western Balkans’ society

ALDA, together with the LDAs, have been working with a great commitment for the accession of the Western Balkans in the European Union, also through the project “Regional Youth Compact for Europe”.

Within this framework, the First Regional Thematic Network Forum and the Annual Conference of the ALDA – Western Balkans Network for Local Democracy were organised in Tirana, on 26th and 27th February 2019.

The event was attended by more than 70 people, representatives of civil society, youth stakeholders and young citizens from the Western Balkans and gave the opportunity to exchange new ways to cooperate in the region on the organisation of activities promoting the EU integration.

The Forum was opened by Mr. Arbjan Mazniku, Deputy Mayor of Tirana, Mr. Sokol Dedja, Deputy Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs of Albania and Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida, Secretary General of ALDA. Mr. Mazniku claimed that EU integration process does not regard only technical aspects but, on the contrary, reform chapters imply European values, which people recognise and share together. Mr. Dedja highlighted that negotiation chapters concern the transformation of our societies and youth is the most important stakeholder in this process because they are the future. Mrs. Valmorbida asserted that: “with the project “Regional Youth Compact for Europe” we are trying to show to the EU that the way to move forward for the Wester Balkans is their accession and youth has a key-role. We need an answer for the conditions in the Western Balkans societies and the answer is the EU and the moment is now.”

Other topics discussed during the Forum were the European and Regional policies for cooperation and the panellists were Mr. Djuro Blanusa, Secretary General of RYCO, and Mr. Gjergj Murra, Executive Director of the Western Balkans Fund. Furthermore, positive practices on making the EU agenda more youth friendly were shared from representatives of public bodies and civil society from the Western Balkan countries.

The Forum was followed by the Annual Conference of the ALDA – Western Balkans Network for Local Democracy, which involved local stakeholders from civil society, both public and business sector from the Western Balkans.

The Regional Thematic Network Forum and the Annual Conference were organised by Youth Act Albania, in the framework of the project “Regional youth compact for Europe”, implemented by the Center for Democracy Foundation, Balkan Network for Local Democracy, CRTA, Youth Act and Sodem. This project is funded by the European Union and the Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

Evropska unija je odgovor za društvo Zapadnog Balkana

ALDA, zajedno sa agencijama lokalne demokratije, sa velikim zalaganjem radi na procesu pristupanja Zapadnog Balkana Evropskoj uniji, posebno kroz projekat „Mladi Balkana za Evropu“.

U okviru ovog projekta, održan je Prvi regionalni tematski forum i godišnja konferencija ALDA – Balkanske mreže za lokalnu demokratiju, u Tirani, 26. i 27. februara 2019. godine.

Događaju je prisustvovalo više od 70 lјudi, predstavnika civilnog društva, omladinskih aktera i mladih građana Zapadnog Balkana, koji su imali priliku za razmenu novih načina saradnje u regionu u vezi organizovanja aktivnosti koje promovišu evropske integracije.

Forum su otvorili gospodin Arbjan Mazniku, zamenik gradonačelnika Tirane, g. Sokol Dedja, zamenik ministra za Evropu i spolјne poslove Albanije i g-đa Antonella Valmorbida, generalna sekretarka ALDA-e. Gospodin Mazniku je tvrdio da proces evropskih integracija ne podrazumeva samo tehničke aspekte, već naprotiv, poglavlјa o reformi podrazumevaju evropske vrednosti, koje lјudi prepoznaju i dele zajedno. Gospodin Dedja je naglasio da se pregovaračka poglavlјa tiču transformacije naših društava, a mladi su najvažniji akter u ovom procesu jer su oni budućnost. Gospođa Valmorbida je izjavila da: “sa projektom “Mladi Balkana za Evropu” pokušavamo da pokažemo da je EU za Zapadni Balkan način da se krene napred, a da mladi imaju klјučnu ulogu. Potreban nam je odgovor za uslove u društvima zapadnog Balkana i odgovor je EU i trenutak je sada.”

Druge teme o kojima se raspravlјalo tokom foruma bile su evropske i regionalne politike za saradnju, a panelisti su bili gospodin Đuro Blanuša, generalni sekretar RYCO-a i g. Gjergj Murra, izvršni direktor Fonda za Zapadni Balkan. U nastavku su predstavnici javnih ustanova i organizacija civilnog društva iz zemalja Zapadnog Balkana govorili o pozitivnim praksama kako učiniti EU agendu pristupačnijom za mlade.

Nakon Foruma uslijedila je godišnja konferencija ALDA – Balkanske mreže za lokalnu demokratiju, koja je uklјučivala lokalne aktere iz civilnog društva, kako javnog tako i poslovnog sektora sa Zapadnog Balkana.

Regionalni tematski forum mreže i godišnja konferencija organizovani su od strane YouthAct-a iz Albanije, u okviru projekta „Mladi Balkana za Evropu“, koji sprovode Fondacija Centar za demokratiju, Balkanska mreža za lokalnu demokratiju, CRTA, YouthAct i Sodem. Ovaj projekat finansiraju Evropska unija i Balkan Trust for Democracy i projekat Marshall Fonda Sjedinjenih Američkih Država.

ALDA and the LDAs at the “Forum of Cities and Regions for Development Cooperation”

The 2019 edition of the Forum Cities and Regions for Development Cooperation – Local and regional partnerships for sustainable urban development came to its end, and once again confirmed itself as a must-join event.
The Forum brought together more than 500 local and Regional Authorities, associations, city networks and practitioners from all over the enlarged Europe and it was co-organised by DEVCO and the European Committee of the Regions.

The event being axed on the themes of decentralised cooperation, we are particularly proud to announce that ALDA and the LDAs have been officially recognised as key stakeholders in this field. The event represented an exclusive occasion for policy dialogue on sustainable urban development between EU institutions and local and regional authorities, thus with a particular emphasis on the implementation of the Agenda 2030 and its SDGs. ALDA was represented by Antonella Valmorbida, Secretary-General, and Sofia Caiolo, LADDER project manager and expert of DEAR programme (Development Education and Raising Awareness), as well as numerous members of ALDA. Since its very beginning, the Commissioner Neven Mimica (DEVCO) and Karl-Heinz Lambertz (CoR’s president) stated loud and clear that sustainable urban development is one of the future greatest challenges, give that by 2050 an additional 2 billion people will live in urban areas. As ALDA we had the opportunity to present our activity and experience in the field of decentralised cooperation, an important tool to promote sustainable development and the collaboration with stakeholders from different backgrounds.

Among the Forum’s best features, we underline its vocation as event boosting dialogue and shortening distances between EU institutions and local authorities, as well as its inspiring nature, namely through the speech of Ms. Souad Ben Abderrahim, first female mayor of Tunis, elected last year during the first free democratic municipal elections of the country. The mayors of Kairouan (Tunisia) and Cimișlia (Moldova) also joined the Forum, as municipalities both hosting a Local Democracy Agency (LDA).

Apart from the official agenda of the Forum, several side events took place, among which we mention the presentation of the news book by Antonella Valmorbida, titled “The European Decentralised Cooperation: Acting for development engaging local authorities and civil society”. The topic perfectly fit within the context of the Forum and enjoyed a good participation of stakeholders, among which representatives from European CSOs and local authorities: hard to imagine a better framework for the introduction of the book!

The European Quiz: local action for the Elections!

On February 6th 2019, a one-of-a-kind event took place in Vicenza (Italy): the European Quiz. In cooperation with the European Parliament’s campaign “This time I’m voting”, the Cultural Centre “Porto Burci” and with the support of the “Europe for Citizens” Programme, ALDA organised a Quiz on the European Union, free and open to everyone. The event was conceived as an amusing moment and an opportunity to talk about Europe and European matters in a friendly way. The “European Quiz” saw a good participation and involvement from the local community who declared themselves satisfied by the original character of the event. The 15 questions of the Quiz covered various aspects of the Union, from politics, to geography, local customs and traditions. The participants’ competition was particularly high, due to the entity of the first prize: the winning couple actually won a 2-day trip to Brussels! The game lasted an hour and was followed by a final reception for all participants.

The European Quiz was organised with the aim of raising awareness among the local population on the European Parliament Elections which will take place next May 2019. Stating loud and clear ALDA’s apolitical position, all we care about is to do our best to inform people and boost the understanding of the privileges we are entitled as European citizens. The outcome of this vote will represent the key of the future reorganisation of the Union and its very existence, since the vote will be also seen as a tool to assess the general consensus and satisfaction of the present state of things.
If you also believe on the importance of the Elections for the future of the Union, and the welfare of every single member country, like we do, the very first and the most important thing we can do, as single citizens, is to talk about it!

Should you want some help to organise the same event or something else related to the European Elections, reach out to us and let’s make it real!


Le Quiz Européen: action locale pour les élections!

Le 6 février 2019, un événement unique en son genre a eu lieu à Vicenza (Italie) : le Quiz européen. En coopération avec la campagne du Parlement européen « Cette fois, je vote », le centre culturel « Porto Burci » et avec le soutien du programme « L’Europe pour les citoyens », ALDA a organisé un jeu-questionnaire sur l’Union européenne, gratuit et ouvert à tous.  L’événement a été conçu comme un moment amusant et une occasion de parler de l’Europe et des questions européennes de manière amicale. Le « Quiz européen » a été caractérisé par une participation et un engagement positifs de la part de la communauté locale qui s’est déclarée satisfaite du caractère original de l’événement. Les 15 questions du Quiz couvraient divers aspects de l’Union, allant de la politique à la géographie, en passant par les coutumes et les traditions locales. Le nombre de participants était particulièrement élevé en raison de l’entité du premier prix: le couple lauréat a gagné un voyage de deux jours à Bruxelles! Le match a duré une heure et a été suivi d’une réception finale pour tous les participants.

Le jeu européen a été organisé dans le but de sensibiliser la population locale aux élections au Parlement européen qui se dérouleront en mai 2019. Exprimant haut et fort la position apolitique de l’ALDA, tout ce qui nous intéresse est de faire de notre mieux pour informer les citoyens et stimuler la compréhension des privilèges auxquels nous avons droit en tant que citoyens européens. L’issue de ce vote représentera la clé de la future réorganisation de l’Union et de son existence même, puisque le vote sera également perçu comme un outil permettant d’évaluer le consensus général et la satisfaction de l’état actuel des choses.
Si vous croyez aussi en l’importance des élections pour l’avenir de l’Union et du bien-être de chaque pays membre, comme nous le faisons, la première et la plus importante chose que nous puissions faire, en tant que citoyen unique, est d’en parler !

Si vous souhaitez obtenir de l’aide pour organiser le même événement ou quelque chose d’autre en rapport avec les élections européennes, contactez-nous et concrétisons-le !


Quizzone Europeo: un’azione locale per le elezioni europee!

Il 6 febbraio 2019 si è tenuto a Vicenza un evento unico nel suo genere: il Quizzone Europeo. In cooperazione con la campagna del Parlamento Europeo “Questa volta voto”, il centro culturale “Porto Burci” e con il sostegno del programma “Europa per i Cittadini”, ALDA ha organizzato un Quiz sull’Unione Europea, gratuito e aperto a tutti.
L’evento è stato concepito come un momento divertente e un’opportunità per parlare di Europa e di temi europei in maniera informale. Il Quizzone Europeo ha goduto di una buona partecipazione e coinvolgimento della comunità, che si è detta soddisfatta del carattere originale dell’evento.
Le quindici domande del Quizzone coprivano diversi aspetti dell’Unione, dalla politica, alla geografia, agli usi e costumi locali. I partecipanti hanno partecipato al quiz con grande coinvolgimento e la giusta dose di competizione, ingrediente giustificato vista l’entità del primo premio: la coppia vincitrice si è infatti aggiudicata un soggiorno di due giorni a Bruxelles! Il gioco è durato un’ora, poi, a chiudere l’evento, un rinfresco per tutti i partecipanti.

Il Quizzone Europeo è stato organizzato con lo scopo di sensibilizzare la popolazione locale riguardo alle elezioni del Parlamento Europeo, che si terranno a maggio 2019. Dichiarata chiaramente e a gran voce la posizione apolitica di ALDA, quello che ci sta a cuore è l’informazione e la presa di coscienza dei privilegi di cui godiamo in quanto cittadini europei.
Il risultato di questo voto rappresenterà infatti la chiave della riorganizzazione futura dell’Unione e ne dipenderà la sua concreta esistenza, poiché il voto è anche strumento di valutazione del consenso generale e della soddisfazione del presente stato delle cose.

Se anche tu, come noi, credi nell’importanza delle elezioni per il futuro dell’Unione e per il welfare di ogni singolo Paese membro, la prima e più importante cosa da fare come singoli cittadini… è parlarne!
Se avessi bisogno di qualsiasi aiuto per organizzare un evento di sensibilizzazione alle elezioni europee, contattaci e ti aiuteremo a trasformalo in realtà!


Европейская викторина: местные инициативы для выборов!

6 февраля 2019 года в Виченце (Италия) состоялось уникальное событие: Европейская викторина. В сотрудничестве с кампанией Европейского парламента «На этот раз я голосую», Культурным центром «Порто Бурчи» и при поддержке программы «Европа для граждан», ALDA организовала викторину о Европейском Союзе, бесплатную и открытую для всех. Мероприятие было задумано как забавный момент и возможность по-дружески поговорить о Европе и европейских вопросах. «Европейская викторина» привлекла к себе активное участие местного сообщества, которое заявило, что удовлетворено оригинальным характером мероприятия. 15 вопросов Викторины охватывали различные аспекты Союза, от политики до географии, местных обычаев и традиций. Конкуренция участников была особенно высокой из-за сущности первого приза: победившая пара фактически выиграла двухдневную поездку в Брюссель! Игра длилась час и сопровождалась финальным приемом для всех участников.

Европейская викторина была организована с целью повышения осведомленности местного населения о выборах в Европейский парламент, которые состоятся в мае 2019 года. Высказывая громкую и ясную аполитичную позицию ALDA, все, о чем мы заботимся, – это сделать все возможное, чтобы информировать людей и стимулировать понимание привилегий, которые мы имеем как граждане Европы. Результат этого голосования станет ключом к будущей реорганизации Союза и самого его существования, поскольку голосование также будет рассматриваться как инструмент для оценки общего консенсуса и удовлетворения нынешнего положения вещей.
Если вы также верите в важность выборов для будущего Союза и благосостояния каждой отдельной страны-члена, как и мы, самое первое и самое важное, что мы, как отдельные граждане, можем сделать, – это поговорить о этом!

Если вам нужна помощь в организации такого же мероприятия или чего-то еще, связанного с европейскими выборами, свяжитесь с нами и давайте сделаем это по-настоящему!


Evropski kviz: lokalna akcija za izbore!

6. februara 2019. godine, održan je jedinstveni događaj u Vićenci (Italija): Evropski Kviz. U saradnji sa kampanjom Evropskog parlamenta „Ovaj put glasam“, Kulturnim centrom „Porto Burci“ i uz podršku programa „Evropa za građane“, ALDA je organizovala kviz o Evropskoj uniji, slobodan i otvoren za sve. Događaj je zamišlјen kao zabavno iskustvo i prilika da se na prijatelјski način razgovara o Evropi i evropskim stvarima. „Evropski kviz“ pokazao je značajno učešće i uklјučenost lokalne zajednice koja se izjasnila da je zadovolјna originalnošću događaja. 15 pitanja kviza obuhvatilo je različite aspekte Unije, od politike, geografije, lokalnih običaja i tradicija. Takmičenje učesnika je imalo veliki ulog, zbog karaktera prve nagrade: pobednički par je osvojio dvodnevni izlet u Brisel! Igra je trajala sat vremena, nakon čega je usledio završni prijem za sve učesnike.

Evropski kviz je organizovan sa cilјem podizanja svesti lokalnog stanovništva o izborima Evropskog parlamenta koji će se održati u maju 2019. godine. Sa jasnim izražavanjem ALDA-ine apolitične pozicije, jedina stvar o kojoj brinemo jeste da ljudi razumeju privilegije koje imamo kao evropski građani. Ishod ovog glasanja predstavlјaće klјuč buduće reorganizacije Unije i njenog postojanja, budući da će se glasanje takođe smatrati instrumentom za procenu opšteg konsenzusa i zadovolјstva sadašnjim stanjem stvari.
Ako takođe verujete u važnost izbora za budućnost Unije i dobrobit svake pojedine zemlјe članice, kao i mi, prva i najvažnija stvar koju možemo, kao pojedinačni građani, je da govorimo o ovome!

Ako želite da vam pomognemo da organizujete sličan događaj ili nešto drugo u vezi sa evropskim izborima, obratite nam se da vam pomognemo da se to i ostvari!

مسابقة أوروبية: نشاط محلي بمناسبة الانتخابات !

احتضنت مدينة فيتشانزا (إيطاليا) يوم 6 فبراير (شباط), 2019, تظاهرة فريدة من نوعها: المسابقة الأوروبية. بالتعاون مع الساهرين على حملة الاتحاد الأوروبي: “في هذه المرة سأدلي بصوتي” والمركز الثقافي ‘بورتو بورشي’, وبدعم من برنامج “أوروبا للمواطنين”, نظمت ألدا مسابقة حول الاتحاد الأوروبي, حر ومفتوح للجميع. تم تصميم التظاهرة لتمثل فترة مرحة وفرصة سانحة للتحدث حول أوروبا والشؤون الأوروبية بطريقة حميمية. شهدت ‘المسابقة الأوروبية’ إقبالا جيدا وحماسا كبيرا من قبل أفراد المجتمعات المحلية الذين عبروا عن رضاهم على الطابع الخاص والجذاب الذي تميزت به التظاهرة. غطت الأسئلة 15 التي احتوت عليها المسابقة جوانب عديدة للاتحاد, حيث أنها تراوحت بين السياسة والجغرافيا وكذلك العادات والتقاليد المحلية صلب بلدان الاتحاد. كما تميزت المسابقة بالمنافسة الشديدة بين مختلف المتسابقين, وذلك لأهمية الجائزة الأولى التي قدمها المنظمون للفائزين: فقد حصل الثنائي الفائز في المسابقة على رحلة لمدة يومين بالعاصمة البلجيكية بروكسل. كما توجت المسابقة, التي استغرقت ساعة,  بحفل استقبال دعي له كافة المشاركين.

نظمت هذه المسابقة الأوروبية بهدف تعزيز الوعي لدى السكان المحليين بأهمية الانتخابات البرلمانية الأوروبية التي ستنظم خلال شهر مايو (آيار) القادم, 2019. وفي تصريح واضح وجلي حول موقفنا السياسي, ذكرنا الجميع أن ما يهمنا, في المقام الأول والأخير, هو بذل قصارى جهدنا لإطلاع الجمهور ومزيد تمكينه من إدراك الميزات التي نحظى بها بصفتنا مواطنين أوروبيين.  كما أن نتائج هذه الانتخابات ستمثل حجر الركن لتنظيم صفوف الاتحاد الأوروبي وتحديد هويته  وكينونته في المستقبل, بما أنه سيتم اعتبار الاقتراع أداة فعالة لتقييم مدى الإجماع ورضا المواطنين الأوروبيين عن الأوضاع الراهنة صلب الاتحاد.

On February 6th 2019, a one-of-a-kind event took place in Vicenza (Italy): the European Quiz. In cooperation with the European Parliament’s campaign “This time I’m voting”, the Cultural Centre “Porto Burci” and with the support of the “Europe for Citizens” Programme, ALDA organised a Quiz on the European Union, free and open to everyone. The event was conceived as an amusing moment and an opportunity to talk about Europe and European matters in a friendly way. The “European Quiz” saw a good participation and involvement from the local community who declared themselves satisfied by the original character of the event. The 15 questions of the Quiz covered various aspects of the Union, from politics, to geography, local customs and traditions. The participants’ competition was particularly high, due to the entity of the first prize: the winning couple actually won a 2-day trip to Brussels! The game lasted an hour and was followed by a final reception for all participants.

The European Quiz was organised with the aim of raising awareness among the local population on the European Parliament Elections which will take place next May 2019. Stating loud and clear ALDA’s apolitical position, all we care about is to do our best to inform people and boost the understanding of the privileges we are entitled as European citizens. The outcome of this vote will represent the key of the future reorganisation of the Union and its very existence, since the vote will be also seen as a tool to assess the general consensus and satisfaction of the present state of things.
If you also believe on the importance of the Elections for the future of the Union, and the welfare of every single member country, like we do, the very first and the most important thing we can do, as single citizens, is to talk about it!

Should you want some help to organise the same event or something else related to the European Elections, reach out to us and let’s make it real!


Le Quiz Européen: action locale pour les élections!

Le 6 février 2019, un événement unique en son genre a eu lieu à Vicenza (Italie) : le Quiz européen. En coopération avec la campagne du Parlement européen « Cette fois, je vote », le centre culturel « Porto Burci » et avec le soutien du programme « L’Europe pour les citoyens », ALDA a organisé un jeu-questionnaire sur l’Union européenne, gratuit et ouvert à tous.  L’événement a été conçu comme un moment amusant et une occasion de parler de l’Europe et des questions européennes de manière amicale. Le « Quiz européen » a été caractérisé par une participation et un engagement positifs de la part de la communauté locale qui s’est déclarée satisfaite du caractère original de l’événement. Les 15 questions du Quiz couvraient divers aspects de l’Union, allant de la politique à la géographie, en passant par les coutumes et les traditions locales. Le nombre de participants était particulièrement élevé en raison de l’entité du premier prix: le couple lauréat a gagné un voyage de deux jours à Bruxelles! Le match a duré une heure et a été suivi d’une réception finale pour tous les participants.

Le jeu européen a été organisé dans le but de sensibiliser la population locale aux élections au Parlement européen qui se dérouleront en mai 2019. Exprimant haut et fort la position apolitique de l’ALDA, tout ce qui nous intéresse est de faire de notre mieux pour informer les citoyens et stimuler la compréhension des privilèges auxquels nous avons droit en tant que citoyens européens. L’issue de ce vote représentera la clé de la future réorganisation de l’Union et de son existence même, puisque le vote sera également perçu comme un outil permettant d’évaluer le consensus général et la satisfaction de l’état actuel des choses.
Si vous croyez aussi en l’importance des élections pour l’avenir de l’Union et du bien-être de chaque pays membre, comme nous le faisons, la première et la plus importante chose que nous puissions faire, en tant que citoyen unique, est d’en parler !

Si vous souhaitez obtenir de l’aide pour organiser le même événement ou quelque chose d’autre en rapport avec les élections européennes, contactez-nous et concrétisons-le !


Quizzone Europeo: un’azione locale per le elezioni europee!

Il 6 febbraio 2019 si è tenuto a Vicenza un evento unico nel suo genere: il Quizzone Europeo. In cooperazione con la campagna del Parlamento Europeo “Questa volta voto”, il centro culturale “Porto Burci” e con il sostegno del programma “Europa per i Cittadini”, ALDA ha organizzato un Quiz sull’Unione Europea, gratuito e aperto a tutti.
L’evento è stato concepito come un momento divertente e un’opportunità per parlare di Europa e di temi europei in maniera informale. Il Quizzone Europeo ha goduto di una buona partecipazione e coinvolgimento della comunità, che si è detta soddisfatta del carattere originale dell’evento.
Le quindici domande del Quizzone coprivano diversi aspetti dell’Unione, dalla politica, alla geografia, agli usi e costumi locali. I partecipanti hanno partecipato al quiz con grande coinvolgimento e la giusta dose di competizione, ingrediente giustificato vista l’entità del primo premio: la coppia vincitrice si è infatti aggiudicata un soggiorno di due giorni a Bruxelles! Il gioco è durato un’ora, poi, a chiudere l’evento, un rinfresco per tutti i partecipanti.

Il Quizzone Europeo è stato organizzato con lo scopo di sensibilizzare la popolazione locale riguardo alle elezioni del Parlamento Europeo, che si terranno a maggio 2019. Dichiarata chiaramente e a gran voce la posizione apolitica di ALDA, quello che ci sta a cuore è l’informazione e la presa di coscienza dei privilegi di cui godiamo in quanto cittadini europei.
Il risultato di questo voto rappresenterà infatti la chiave della riorganizzazione futura dell’Unione e ne dipenderà la sua concreta esistenza, poiché il voto è anche strumento di valutazione del consenso generale e della soddisfazione del presente stato delle cose.

Se anche tu, come noi, credi nell’importanza delle elezioni per il futuro dell’Unione e per il welfare di ogni singolo Paese membro, la prima e più importante cosa da fare come singoli cittadini… è parlarne!
Se avessi bisogno di qualsiasi aiuto per organizzare un evento di sensibilizzazione alle elezioni europee, contattaci e ti aiuteremo a trasformalo in realtà!


Европейская викторина: местные инициативы для выборов!

6 февраля 2019 года в Виченце (Италия) состоялось уникальное событие: Европейская викторина. В сотрудничестве с кампанией Европейского парламента «На этот раз я голосую», Культурным центром «Порто Бурчи» и при поддержке программы «Европа для граждан», ALDA организовала викторину о Европейском Союзе, бесплатную и открытую для всех. Мероприятие было задумано как забавный момент и возможность по-дружески поговорить о Европе и европейских вопросах. «Европейская викторина» привлекла к себе активное участие местного сообщества, которое заявило, что удовлетворено оригинальным характером мероприятия. 15 вопросов Викторины охватывали различные аспекты Союза, от политики до географии, местных обычаев и традиций. Конкуренция участников была особенно высокой из-за сущности первого приза: победившая пара фактически выиграла двухдневную поездку в Брюссель! Игра длилась час и сопровождалась финальным приемом для всех участников.

Европейская викторина была организована с целью повышения осведомленности местного населения о выборах в Европейский парламент, которые состоятся в мае 2019 года. Высказывая громкую и ясную аполитичную позицию ALDA, все, о чем мы заботимся, – это сделать все возможное, чтобы информировать людей и стимулировать понимание привилегий, которые мы имеем как граждане Европы. Результат этого голосования станет ключом к будущей реорганизации Союза и самого его существования, поскольку голосование также будет рассматриваться как инструмент для оценки общего консенсуса и удовлетворения нынешнего положения вещей.
Если вы также верите в важность выборов для будущего Союза и благосостояния каждой отдельной страны-члена, как и мы, самое первое и самое важное, что мы, как отдельные граждане, можем сделать, – это поговорить о этом!

Если вам нужна помощь в организации такого же мероприятия или чего-то еще, связанного с европейскими выборами, свяжитесь с нами и давайте сделаем это по-настоящему!


Evropski kviz: lokalna akcija za izbore!

6. februara 2019. godine, održan je jedinstveni događaj u Vićenci (Italija): Evropski Kviz. U saradnji sa kampanjom Evropskog parlamenta „Ovaj put glasam“, Kulturnim centrom „Porto Burci“ i uz podršku programa „Evropa za građane“, ALDA je organizovala kviz o Evropskoj uniji, slobodan i otvoren za sve. Događaj je zamišlјen kao zabavno iskustvo i prilika da se na prijatelјski način razgovara o Evropi i evropskim stvarima. „Evropski kviz“ pokazao je značajno učešće i uklјučenost lokalne zajednice koja se izjasnila da je zadovolјna originalnošću događaja. 15 pitanja kviza obuhvatilo je različite aspekte Unije, od politike, geografije, lokalnih običaja i tradicija. Takmičenje učesnika je imalo veliki ulog, zbog karaktera prve nagrade: pobednički par je osvojio dvodnevni izlet u Brisel! Igra je trajala sat vremena, nakon čega je usledio završni prijem za sve učesnike.

Evropski kviz je organizovan sa cilјem podizanja svesti lokalnog stanovništva o izborima Evropskog parlamenta koji će se održati u maju 2019. godine. Sa jasnim izražavanjem ALDA-ine apolitične pozicije, jedina stvar o kojoj brinemo jeste da ljudi razumeju privilegije koje imamo kao evropski građani. Ishod ovog glasanja predstavlјaće klјuč buduće reorganizacije Unije i njenog postojanja, budući da će se glasanje takođe smatrati instrumentom za procenu opšteg konsenzusa i zadovolјstva sadašnjim stanjem stvari.
Ako takođe verujete u važnost izbora za budućnost Unije i dobrobit svake pojedine zemlјe članice, kao i mi, prva i najvažnija stvar koju možemo, kao pojedinačni građani, je da govorimo o ovome!

Ako želite da vam pomognemo da organizujete sličan događaj ili nešto drugo u vezi sa evropskim izborima, obratite nam se da vam pomognemo da se to i ostvari!

مسابقة أوروبية: نشاط محلي بمناسبة الانتخابات !

احتضنت مدينة فيتشانزا (إيطاليا) يوم 6 فبراير (شباط), 2019, تظاهرة فريدة من نوعها: المسابقة الأوروبية. بالتعاون مع الساهرين على حملة الاتحاد الأوروبي: “في هذه المرة سأدلي بصوتي” والمركز الثقافي ‘بورتو بورشي’, وبدعم من برنامج “أوروبا للمواطنين”, نظمت ألدا مسابقة حول الاتحاد الأوروبي, حر ومفتوح للجميع. تم تصميم التظاهرة لتمثل فترة مرحة وفرصة سانحة للتحدث حول أوروبا والشؤون الأوروبية بطريقة حميمية. شهدت ‘المسابقة الأوروبية’ إقبالا جيدا وحماسا كبيرا من قبل أفراد المجتمعات المحلية الذين عبروا عن رضاهم على الطابع الخاص والجذاب الذي تميزت به التظاهرة. غطت الأسئلة 15 التي احتوت عليها المسابقة جوانب عديدة للاتحاد, حيث أنها تراوحت بين السياسة والجغرافيا وكذلك العادات والتقاليد المحلية صلب بلدان الاتحاد. كما تميزت المسابقة بالمنافسة الشديدة بين مختلف المتسابقين, وذلك لأهمية الجائزة الأولى التي قدمها المنظمون للفائزين: فقد حصل الثنائي الفائز في المسابقة على رحلة لمدة يومين بالعاصمة البلجيكية بروكسل. كما توجت المسابقة, التي استغرقت ساعة,  بحفل استقبال دعي له كافة المشاركين.

نظمت هذه المسابقة الأوروبية بهدف تعزيز الوعي لدى السكان المحليين بأهمية الانتخابات البرلمانية الأوروبية التي ستنظم خلال شهر مايو (آيار) القادم, 2019. وفي تصريح واضح وجلي حول موقفنا السياسي, ذكرنا الجميع أن ما يهمنا, في المقام الأول والأخير, هو بذل قصارى جهدنا لإطلاع الجمهور ومزيد تمكينه من إدراك الميزات التي نحظى بها بصفتنا مواطنين أوروبيين.  كما أن نتائج هذه الانتخابات ستمثل حجر الركن لتنظيم صفوف الاتحاد الأوروبي وتحديد هويته  وكينونته في المستقبل, بما أنه سيتم اعتبار الاقتراع أداة فعالة لتقييم مدى الإجماع ورضا المواطنين الأوروبيين عن الأوضاع الراهنة صلب الاتحاد.
إذا كنت تؤمن فعلا بأهمية الانتخابات لتحديد مصير الاتحاد وتنادي بضرورة تأمين الازدهار والرفاه لكل فرد من أفراد البلدان الأعضاء في الاتحاد, فإن أهم وأول شيء يمكنك القيام به في هذا الاتجاه, بصفتك مواطن مثل كافة المواطنين, هو الترويج لهذه الفكرة.
إذا كنت ترغب في الحصول على الدعم الضروري لتنظيم مثل هذه التظاهرة, أو أي نشاط آخر من هذا القبيل حول الانتخابات الأوروبية, لا تتردد في الاتصال بنا وسنساعدك على تحقيق هذه الغاية.


Improving knowledge of the EU and exchanging practices to motivate young voters

The first international event of the CROSS OVER project took place on 3rd-4th of February in Zagreb, Croatia during which local and international participants discussed ways to foster participation to the European elections.
The event titled “What is the European Union?” was organised by the Croatian County Association, in cooperation with AGORA CE. and saw the involvement of more than 50 participants from 10 countries.
The first day, partners of the project gathered to share experiences about how much people understand about the European Union and to elaborate possible solutions to boost participation at the next European Parliament elections.
The public conference took place on the second day, during which several speakers took the floor. First, Mr. Goran Pauk, president of the Croatian County Association, welcomed the participants and Ms. Ivana Bursíková, director of Agora CE, introduced the CROSS OVER project.

In the first session, Mr. Branko Baričević from the European Commission Representation in Croatia, and Ms. Violeta Simeonova Staničić from the Office of the European Parliament in Croatia, talked about the awareness of the European Union in the country and the participation in the European Parliament elections, while Mr. Slaven Hojski from the National Electoral Commission of Croatia presented how they are spreading knowledge about the electoral process in relation with the European Parliament elections.
In the second session, on the theme of “Young people as incubators of ideas and social changes”, Ms. Petra Pekica from the Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes, Mr. Nino Preložnjak from the candidacy of City of Varaždin for European Youth Capital, Mr. Josip Miličević from the Croatian Youth Network and Ms. Ivana Radanović from the Network of Associations Zagor, introduced their work in involving young people in civic life in Croatia.

To conclude the event, the prize winners of the “EU2ME” creative competition were celebrated by showcasing their creations and receiving their prizes.
The CROSS OVER project is co-funded by the Europe for Citizens programme. The project aims at encouraging young people to reflect on political accountability through increased participation in the elections for the European Parliament. The basic idea of the project is to devise and stimulate actions that will effectively solve the lack of interest of youth in voting at the European level.
