Šema sub-granting projekta “Food Wave”: kraj prve faze

grant

Privedena je kraju prva faza šeme sub-grantiranja namenjene mladima i malim organizacijama civilnog društva. Pre nego što uđemo u detalje, nekoliko informacija o samom projektu.

. Food Wave – sufinansiran od strane EU u okviru Programa za razvojno obrazovanje i podizanje svesti (DEAR) i promovisan od strane opštine Milan zajedno sa “ActionAid Italia”, “ACRA”, “Mani Tese” i 25 projektnih partnera u 17 zemalja, uključujući ALDA-u – ima za cilj na stvaranju svesti o održivim obrascima potrošnje i proizvodnje hrane za ublažavanje klimatskih promena, aktiviranje mladih ljudi i omogućavanje im da utiču na institucionalne odluke.

Pod koordinacijom Evropske asocijacije za lokalnu demokratiju – ALDA, uspostavljena je šema sub-grantiranja sa ciljem da se podrže inicijative na lokalnom nivou i ulične akcije u oblasti ponašanja pri potrošnji hrane koje su povoljne za klimu. Grantovi su se fokusirali na ulične akcije koje mogu proizvesti specifične rezultate i koji će biti primeri i inspiracija za građane, nevladine organizacije i lokalne vlasti, na temu kako da generišu konstruktivne aktivnosti usmerene na rezultate.


Šema sub-grantiranja je uspostavljena sa ciljem da se podrže inicijative na lokalnom nivou i ulične akcije u oblasti ponašanja u pogledu potrošnje hrane prihvatljive za klimu


Konkretnije, grantovi su bili usmereni na konkretne akcije kao što su upoznavanje lokalnih proizvođača i lokalnih tržišta; pridržavanje održive dijete za smanjenje uticaja na planetu i zaštitu ljudskih prava; stvaranje alternativnih lokalnih sistema ishrane. I opet, borba protiv rasipanja hrane; održivije obrazovanje o hrani i širenje znanja u borbi protiv klimatskih promena; pravičan pristup zdravoj i održivijoj i pravednijoj hrani.

Korisnici ovog prvog kruga podgrant šeme Food Wave-a bile su 21 omladinska organizacija iz 13 različitih zemalja, čije inicijative su uključivale 25 teritorija i više od 6.000 mladih ljudi. Svi sub-grantisti su bili svedoci pozitivnog balansa projekata i aktivnog lokalnog i teritorijalnog uključivanja, posebno mladih i njihovih porodica, kakvo nisu iskusili do sada!

Međutim, ovo nije kraj projekta, ali je označio početak šeme sub-grantiranja talasa hrane: drugi poziv za podnošenje predloga treba da bude objavljen 2022. godine i uključiće lokalne vlasti. Budite u toku!

Zima pozdrav i Sretna Nova Godina čestitke iz ALDE

winter

Zimska čestitke i Sretna Nova godina od predsjednika ALDA, Gospodin Oriano Ototan , glavni tajnik Alda gospođe Valmorbida i cijeli tim ALDA!
Kao i svaki prosinac, vrijeme je da se zaustavi na trenutak i osvrnemo se na ono što je učinjeno u posljednjih 12 mjeseci. Godina puna inicijativa, sastanaka i događaja koji daju ogromnu energiju za nadolazeću 2022.

 

“Dear Members, Partners and Friends of ALDA, behalf of the whole team of ALDA, its Governing Board and all the LDAs, let me wish you all the best Winter Holidays that 2021 can offer to all of us!” – stated our President Mr Oriano Otočan  at the beginning to its letter.

“The year about to end has been a unique one – continued Mr. Otočan –  with the COVID-19 pandemic crisis still challenging deeply the implementation of our activities and everyday work all around Europe and beyond. Many of you have faced difficulties in the management of the crisis, from the economic to the social and cultural point of view. It is the reason why our support towards local communities has been more important than ever.

Ove godine više nego ikada, cilj nam je bio da povežemo našu mrežu lokalnih zajednica i aktera iz Evrope i šire, duboko uvereni da ćemo samo zajedno, deleći ideje i zajedničkim radom, prevazići složene izazove našeg vremena. S tim u vezi, pokrenuli smo i niz novih mogućnosti za naše članove, među kojima i radne grupe, dajući priliku da dele, sarađuju i zajedno oblikuju budućnost našeg Udruženja, ali i Evrope .

Uprkos poteškoćama u postepenom ukidanju ove globalne pandemije, koja je duboko uticala na život svih nas, spremni smo da damo svoj deo kako bismo zaštitili najugroženije i da sa obnovljenom energijom pristupimo 2022. godini kako bismo se konačno vratili na oblik „normalnosti“, obogaćen svim mislima i izazovima sa kojima smo se svi zajedno suočili u protekle 2 godine.

Takođe, želim da iskoristim priliku da se setim naših dragih prijatelja i kolega Saše Marinkova, delegata Agencije lokalne demokratije Centralna-Južna Srbija, i Viktora Kotrute, koordinatora projekta Istočno partnerstvo, koji su nas napustili ove godine. Prijatelji koje ćemo istinski sa divljenjem pamtiti.

"Dozvolite mi da vam poželim sve najbolje povodom zimskih praznika koje 2021!" - Oriano Otočan - ALDA predsjednik

Na kraju, ali ne i najmanje važno, svima želim sve najbolje! Želim vam bolju, mirniju, sigurniju i srećniju 2022. godinu!

Last but not least, – concluded Mr. Otočan –  I wish everyone all the best!  I wish you a better, calmer, safer and happier 2022!”

 

Slično tome, Gospođa Antonella Valmorbida, glavni tajnik ALDA-e, poželjela je mreže i prijatelje udruge toplih zimskih čestitki i sretne nove godine i poželjela se uskoro vidjeti 2022.godine.

Online fake news and local democracy: The final international event of the DIGITAL project

From 17 to 19 November 2021, the 5th and final event of the DIGITAL project – Supporting Democratic Union and Active Citizenship in Digital Era  – took place in Madrid, Spain. The event entitled “Fake news: How to counter the fake news and disinformation that spread online?” was held both online and offline and offered the possibility to debate and share opinions on topics such as the impact of digitalization, the future of the European Union, and the place of citizens in this digital transformation. For ALDA it was attended by Elisabetta Uroni, Head of the Communication Department.

. DIGITAL project is led by the Federation of Municipalities of Madrid (FMM) and financed by the Europe for Citizens Programme. Its aim was to assemble policymakers and citizens from 15 European countries to enhance democratic and civic participation across Europe.

The first day of the event focused on the proliferation of fake news in the digital age and included interventions by José Antonio Sánchez Serrano, the Deputy Minister of Local Administration and Digitization of the Community of Madrid, and Cristina Moreno Moreno, the General Manager of FMM. In addition, conclusions were drawn from the previous international events, including through interactive sessions.


The event focused on the proliferation of fake news in the digital age; the effects on on local democracy  and on digital transition


The second day focused on issues such as the effects of fake news on local democracy with speakers José Manuel Hoyo, the Mayor of Brunete and Vice President of the Information Society Commission, Alfredo García-Plata, the Mayor of Torrelodones and Member of the Information Society Commission, Jorge Alberto Campos, the Mayor of Paracuellos del Jarama and Member of the Governing Board FMM, and Asensio Martínez Agraz, the Mayor of Sevilla la Nueva and Member of the Governing Board of the FMM. Furthermore, strategies, methods, and techniques in the fight against fake news were discussed together with Francisco Serrato iz The Objective, Vincenzo Tiani, Advisory expert in Digital Policies and professor at the IULM University (Milan), Andrés Jiménez, the MALDITO BULO Coordinator, and an expert from NEWTRAL. The day closed with an interactive session on good local practices with regard to fake news.

The third day started with a round table discussion on best practices that make a significant contribution to the “digital transition” at EU level, presented by Cristina Moreno Moreno and featuring Myrian Redondo from VerificaRTVE. This was followed by a presentation of the conclusions of the teamwork of day 2 and the closing session.

The event provided an important forum for analyzing and discussing the issue of fake news and its impact on local democracy from a variety of perspectives. It brought together a number of experts and stakeholders but also allowed citizens to actively participate.

Povratak u budućnost! “PART-Y” projekat korača u 2022

2022

2022. će doneti sjajne nove korake i aktivnosti za “PART-Y” projekat! Hajde da ih pogledamo zajedno.

“Kallipolis”, vodeći partner, će razvijati drugi intelektualni rezultat projekta, odnosno Metodologiju učenja o kreiranju mesta putem dizajnerskog razmišljanja, koja ima za cilj da preoblikuje dizajn razmišljanja primenom na kreiranje mesta u urbanim prostorima, sa ciljem da se garantuje jednak pristup i korist za devojčice i dečake.

Slično tome, partneri će takođe nastaviti sa obukama kako bi saznali više o metodi i tehnici „promišljanja dizajna“. U međuvremenu, neki nacionalni i međunarodni događaji će omogućiti partnerima da upoznaju javnost sa rezultatima i ishodima projekta.

Ali šta je do sada urađeno? Uprkos pandemiji COVID-19, 2021. je bila godina ispunjena aktivnostima za projekat “PART-Y”.


2022. će doneti sjajne nove korake i aktivnosti za “PART-Y” projekat


Nakon početnog onlajn sastanka u martu, osam partnera se sastalo tri puta radi upravljanja i obuka na kojima su kroz studijske posete naučili više o kreiranju mesta i gradova koji su rodno ravnopravni. Zbog zdravstvene krize, sastanci se održavaju onlajn. Ipak, partneri su mogli da se sretnu licem u lice po prvi put u Madridu u oktobru 2021.

Pored toga, organizovane su aktivnosti u omladinskim centrima u vlasništvu opština Trst i Kopar. Ove radionice će se koristiti za implementaciju i testiranje metodologija proučavanih tokom obuka; omogućavajući partnerima da prikupe mišljenja mladih o njihovim mogućnostima da dobiju svoje mesto i ulogu u projektima.

ALDA je kreirala intelektualni rezultat prvog projekta: Priručnik za izgradnju komunikacijske kampanje za mlade i inkluzivnog kreiranja mesta namenjene mladima i opštinama koje žele da budu uključene u akcije stvaranja mesta. Rezultati su distribuirani tokom jednomesečnog PART-Y Festivala ulične umetnosti čiji je domaćin bio Trst, Italija.

Na kraju, ali ne i najmanje važno, u oktobru su partneri takođe imali odličnu priliku da predstave prve rezultate projekta i Priručnik tokom Nedelje regiona i gradova Evropske unije 2021. (pogledajte naš prethodni članak).

Na osnovu ovih sjajnih inicijativa, 2022. će biti još bolja, a “PART-Y” partneri su spremni da sa velikom energijom započnu novu godinu!

Nova akreditacija za ALDA donosi ELoGE na Kosovo

After the first steps of the programme in Croatia and North Macedonia, ALDA was awarded with the accreditation to implement the merila za evropsku oznaku izvrsnosti upravljanja (ELoGE). u Kosovo*.

In the next 2 years, ALDA will implement the ELoGE assessment of around 15-20 municipalities in Kosovo* and work with them to be able to understand and apply good democratic practices. They will also facilitate and monitor the process of the implementation of the 12 principles of good democratic governance as outlined by ELoGE and spread awareness among authority figures.

This project will last for a 2-year period, starting the activities in January 2022 and ending-up in November 2023.


From January 2022, ALDA will contribute delivering better local governance for citizens of Kosovo*


Previously, ALDA received the accreditation to be able to implement ELoGE in Croatia and North Macedonia, which was a precursor for the work in Kosovo* and another step in the greater ambition for the Western Balkans. Along with that, recently on September 28th, the Secretary General of ALDA, Antonella Valmorbida, visited Kosovo* in order to create a proposal for the support of local governance, encourage and facilitate capacity building, and grow regional cooperation in the Country and the rest of the Balkans. Important factors are the promotion of good management of EU funds and the promotion of EU programi.

Strong of this further accreditation, ALDA is excited and committed to supporting local government and EU integration ambitions in Kosovo*.  Through the implementation of the principles of the ELoGE programme, ALDA will contribute to deliver better local governance for citizens.

Why the ELoGE? The ELoGE evaluation allows local authorities to understand their strengths and their weaknesses when providing public services to the local community and exercising public authority. To improve the quality of local governance, local authorities can use various tools developed by the Centre of Expertise and take inspiration from their colleagues’ best practices.
