Five creative outputs for the CAP-PERI project!

One of the achievements of the CAP-PERI project consisted in the creation of five different, innovative and creative outputs. 

An important element to take into consideration concerned the variety of creative and artistic languages to involve, so that each local workshop could explore a different creative dimension and develop various potentialities, thus resulting in 5 outputs different from one another. Each workshop was divided into 8 or more sessions (of 2 or more hours each), plus a final session for the presentation of the creative output.

The co-creative workshop in Palermo was conducted by Nunzia Lo Presti. It involved 23 students of the class 3° D of the local Scientific High School “Einstein”, and the creative output was a CAPPERI PODCAST.

The workshop in Milan was undertaken by Isabella Bordoni, involving 19 students from the local High School “IIS Santa Caterina da Siena” and resulted in “MICRO-GIARDINI”: a module environment of biodiversity, cohabitation and sociality. A physical, real environment, arising from processes of an artistic-formative nature, experience, affectivity, expression, recovery and self-construction.


The CAP-PERI project resulted in the creation of five different and creative outputs!


Giancarlos Stellini conducted the co-creative workshop in Mesagne, involving 20 students from the local High School “IISS Epifanio Ferdinando”. This workshop led to the creation of the participatory video OCRA. The video is about the importance of respecting the earth and it presents different activities that were conducted, within the CAP-PERI project, on this topic. 

In Vicenza, Paola Rossi carried out the co-creative workshop engaging 21 students of class 4° BSC of the local High School “G.B. Quadri”, which resulted in SILENT CAPPERI. The aim of the workshop was to create a collective dramaturgical audio-narration, for a site-specific audio-itinerary, to be experienced with headphones while walking in the rural area of Carpaneda, which the students discovered during the experiential workshops with Valentina Anzoise, and which embodied a great number of important topics related to agriculture and sustainability

Finally, In Rome, the co-creative workshop was undertaken by Lorenzo Maragoni, engaging 48 students from two different classes of the local High School “IIS Leonardo Da Vinci”, and the creative output consisted in a Poetry Slam Live Performance. The students were introduced to the creation of poems related to the project and publicly presented the output in front of other students and school staff. 

Below you can read some of these amazing poems (in Italian)!

Tra trent’anni il mare sarà arrivato dove adesso mi trovo io? 

Quelli di Tolfa diranno ‘andiamo al mare a Maccarese?” 

Quelle di Fregene invece, ah no loro non ci saranno più 

E vedranno in lontananza il mare che sta quaggiù. 

Qui dove adesso è pieno di verde e di gente 

Ci sarà forse un nuovo ambiente?

Manifesti sulla plastica, raccolta differenziata

Ma questa è la via giusta o quella sbagliata? 

Non sprecare l’acqua, spegni la luce!

Queste sono le cose continuamente ripetute 

Ci avete asfissiato con la storia sull’ambiente,

Volete intervenire o parlare per sempre?

(Lucretia, Giovanni, Martina e Giuliana)

***

Quando mi fermo vedo tante avversità,

ma nonostante tutto voglio pensare che 

Tra le tecnologie e le scienze in evoluzione 

molti sogni si realizzeranno.

La società capirà sempre più 

quanto è prezioso il pianeta terra

E il concreto bisogno che ha di curarlo al meglio 

Delle nostre forze e conoscenze,

Affinché possa regalarci ancora per secoli

Preziosi doni come l’acqua, l’aria e il sole.

E soprattutto speriamo di abbassare di qualche grado le temperature

Attraverso l’ecologia rinnovabile.

Credo che tutti meritiamo un pianeta sano,

Con le risorse meravigliose che da sempre abbiamo ricevuto.

Noi tutti siamo parte del pianeta terra, 

per questo è il nostro preciso dovere 

curarlo al meglio delle nostre possibilità.

Così vedo il nostro futuro

(Ylenia)

Io so terreno

E sembra vero anche l’arcobaleno.

Piano piano tutto sta finendo

E noi non ce ne stiamo accorgendo

Perché diciamo sticazzi 

se una pianta o un animale sta morendo.

Non abbiamo più tempo per salvare la terra

E frantumare l’effetto serra.

La speranza è la nostra ultima salvezza

Quindi fate attenzione quando comprate la monnezza.

Mi raccomando prudenza

Se non vuoi avere un futuro basato sulla sopravvivenza

In cui tuo figlio potrebbe non farcela

O morire di morte precoce,

quindi alziamo la voce

perché questo mondo non può fare questa fine atroce.

(Yuri, Nicolò)

Nomades

The Festival Théâtres Nomades to stress the importance of climate and environment

On August 19 and 20, 2022 in Brussels at Bois de la Cambre, ALDA took part in the Festival Théâtres Nomades and it was a big success

Mainly dedicated to street arts and theater, the Festival “Théâtres Nomades”  was also an eclectic moment open to NGOs and associations to share their work and projects in an interactive way. Invited by Compagnie des Nouveaux Disparus, Head of the Belgium Branch of the Fondacija Anna Lindh., ALDA had a stand to promote its values and initiatives such as as the project: Climate of Change. 

The participation in the festival was a great opportunity to exchange with a broad range of audiences, including youngsters and climate activists in a festive atmosphere. It gave us the chance to present the commitment of ALDA to safeguarding the environment and to raising awareness about climate change.



. Climate of Change project underlines the link between climate change and migration, advocating for a more specific protection scheme for climate migrants.​ It also fosters the importance of involvement and participation of young people in policy making since they will face the worst effects of the climate crisis. If you haven’t done it yet we invite you to sign the petition which aims to put the topic on the political agenda and ask for actions from EU institutions.

Thanks to ALDA’s interactive questionnaire on European processes and values, colleagues from the Brussels office stimulated the public’s curiosity and engaged an interesting debate about climate change and the European Union. The approval and support of the people was clear and evident since many signatures were finally collected

The festival was a great chance to show the engagement of ALDA for the environmental cause underlining the solutions it is trying to promote with its projects. Furthermore, it was also an important moment of interaction with people and supporters of ALDA’s work and mission.

Democracy needs you: join the citizens’ jury of the “European Capital of Democracy”

On 19-20 August 2022, Vienna, the capital of Austria, welcomed for the second time the Experts’ Jury of the  “European Capital of Democracy” (ECoD). The latter is an initiative willing to build a network of  cities working for the increment of citizens’ participation. Recently inaugurated, the ECoD champions, every year, a city in Europe representative of democracy, and democratic local innovation.

From a general standpoint, democracy sets the basis to grow, for example, a more equal and just society, to foster freedoms, while safeguarding the planet not only in Europe but all over the world. Therefore, it should never be taken for granted; on the contrary, it should constantly be nourished.

Specifically for this very first edition, already 22 cities from 11 different countries joined, and the Experts’ Jury will now have the hard task to start scrutinizing the candidates. 

Yet, citizens can also have their say! If you are passionate about Europe, democracy, and you want to take part in the initiative, do not miss the opportunity to be among the citizens’ jury.



If “peace”, “equity” or “fair pay and prices” are causes you embrace, apply to be a member of the citizens’ jury, and be the protagonist together with other people. Selected among the 3-5 shortlisted candidate cities, previously chosen by the Expert’s one, the citizens will pick the first European Capital of Democracy, which will be announced in September 2023!

ALDA, together with its generalni sekretar i Chairwoman of the ECoD Experts’ Jury – Ms. Valmorbida – is very much glad to further support democracy through this initiative.

ALDA nastavlja da pokazuje svoju solidarnost i posvećenost Ukrajini

Sredinom jula 2022. godine, Vinica je doživjela ogroman raketni napad u kojem je poginula 21 osoba, uključujući troje djece. Ovo je još jedan brutalni napad na naciju koja nemilosrdno pati od februara 2022. Podrazumeva se da je ALDA izrazila solidarnost sa svima koji žive u Ukrajini. U tvitu, Antonella Valmorbida, generalni sekretar ALDA-e, ponovo je iznijela stav ALDA-e prema ratu protiv Ukrajine, naglašavajući stalnu podršku ALDA-e ukrajinskom stanovništvu i ponavljajući spremnost za osnivanje nove Agencije lokalne demokratije u Vinici.


Od početka krize, ALDA neprestano radi na pružanju konkretne pomoći Ukrajini i njenom narodu


Od početka krize, ALDA neprestano radi na pružanju konkretne pomoći Ukrajini, djelujući zajedno sa ukrajinskim agencijama lokalne demokratije u Dnjepru i Mariupolju. U svojoj posvećenosti jačanju agencija lokalne demokratije, ALDA je u junu 2022. godine pozvala zajednicu lokalnih vlasti i organizacija civilnog društva na konferenciju pod nazivom „ “Podrška agencijama lokalne demokratije u Ukrajini“,, koja je održana u Briselu. Konferencija je imala za cilj da pruži pouzdane informacije o situaciji na terenu u Ukrajini, kao I o aktivnostima koje je ALDA sprovodila i da pruži podršku civilima i ljudima u nevolji. Konferencija je imala veliki uspeh i istakla je volju za budućim inicijativama, saradnjom i potencijalnim otvaranjem agencija lokalne demokratije u Odesi i Vinici.

Od početka rata, ALDA je uvijek pokazivala snažnu vezu sa Ukrajinom. Kao što je navedeno u njenoj “Izjavi o isključenju Rusije iz Vijeća Evrope” ” i u njenoj ““Izjavi o Ukrajini-Rusiji” ” ALDA odlučno osuđuje rat protiv Ukrajine i nikada neće prestati podržavati zemlju i njen narod, te tražiti od Evropske Unija da imat još angažiraniju ulogu u okončanju vojne invazije i pokretanju mirovnog procesa.

ALDA za učešće građana: sve veći angažman

Nagrađena Operativnim grantom Operativnim grantom Evropske unije Programa građana, jednakosti, prava i vrijednosti (CERV), ALDA promovira učešće građana i lokalnih zajednica u vrijednostima Unije. U skladu sa prioritetima i ciljevima Programa, mnogi ALDA-ini projekti i inicijative inspirisani su sa četiri stuba CERV-a, a provode se u saradnji sa velikom mrežom članova i partnera širom Evrope i njenog susedstva. Tačnije, četiri stuba su:

  1. Jednakost, prava i rodna ravnopravnost 
  2. Angažman i učešće građana 
  3. Boriti se protiv svih vrsta nasilja
  4. Štiti i promovirati vrijednosti Unije

Konkretnije, u okviru stuba „Angažman i učešće građana“, ALDA se pridružila ceremoniji dodjele nagrada „Postanimo građani Evrope“ Evropskog pokreta federalista (EFM), cìkoja je održana 30. juna 2022. u Veroni, Italija.

Takmičenje, koje je promovirao EFM, uključilo je niz studenata iz regije Veneto i imalo je za cilj promoviranje bližeg pristupa mladih politikama i pitanjima Evropske unije. Kroz inicijative poput ove, ALDA se može pozabaviti ovim problemima pristupom odozdo prema gore, oslanjajući se na podršku sponzora i partnera koji dijele iste vrijednosti.

Koristeći 20-godišnje iskustvo kada je u pitanju angažman i mobilizacija građana, ALDA snažno vjeruje i podržava aktivno učešće mladih u evropskim procesima, te na taj način podiže svijest o prednostima evropskog građanstva od najranije dobi. 


ALDA snažno vjeruje i podržava aktivno učešće mladih u evropskim procesima


Projekt DESIRE na primjer, ima za cilj poticanje kritičkog razmišljanja mladih i podizanje svijesti o EU i njenim osnovnim vrijednostima i prednostima. Ovo je posebno uvjerljivo u istorijskom trenutku u kojem se Unija bori protiv euroskepticizma i unutrašnjih podjela. Počevši od mlađih generacija u cilju postizanja višeg cilja, ALDA može stimulisati rast i razvoj demokratske realnosti u kojoj građani žive uz direktno učešće civilnog društva, kako bi podstakla aktivno učešće u evropskom procesu.

Ovo su samo dva od mnogih projekata u koje je ALDA uključena: aktivnosti koje podržava program Operativnog granta su raznolike i uključuju različite partnere. 

Sve u svemu, ALDA-ine akcije za promociju demokratije i učešća građana u Evropi su efikasne i doprinose kako u postizanju ciljeva održivog razvoja i Agende 2030, tako i u proaktivnoj podršci postizanju ciljeva i principa CERV programa.

Participativna deliberativna demokratija u srži obuke u Tunisu

participative

Ranije ovog ljeta, krajem jula, generalna sekretarka ALDA – Antonella Valmorbida – održala je drugi modul obuke o „participativnoj deliberativnoj demokratiji“ u Soussu za učesnike iz gradova Kairouan i Mahdia u Tunisu. Nakon prethodnog modula održanog u oktobru 2021. godine, u ovoj posljednjoj obuci učestvovali su izabrani zvaničnici općinskih vijeća Kairouana i Mahdia, tehničko osoblje obje opštine i lokalni akteri civilnog društva .

Osmišljen u okviru projekta AUTREMENT, koji ima za cilj podršku izgradnji kapaciteta kroz pružanje obuke opštinama tuniskih gradova u lokalnoj upravi; program se fokusirao na pružanje alata za organizovanje građanskih događaja uzimajući kao studije slučaja i strazburški "Marché de Noel" i "Festival Biblico" iz Vićence.


Podsticanje učešća građana kroz participativnu deliberativnu demokratiju


Nadalje, gospođa Valmorbida je ilustrovala različite opcije o tome kako poticati sigurno okruženje za dijalog i razmjenu između lokalnih aktera civilnog društva i izabranih zvaničnika. Kroz vježbe, sesije pitanja i odgovora i debate, lokalni akteri civilnog društva iznijeli su niz prijedloga i izazova sa kojima se inače susreću u svom aktivizmu dok sarađuju sa lokalnim vlastima. Slično, izabrani zvaničnici su uspjeli odgovoriti na upite i dati više uvida u procedure koje regulišu njihovo postupanje.

Dakle, na osnovu konkretnog i lokalnog primjera, obuka je završena mapom puta o koracima koje bi trebalo poduzeti u budućnosti za razvoj događaja kao što je "The Mouled Festival" . Festival se obično održava za vrijeme praznika, a posvećen je proslavi proroka islama Muhameda. Stoga je ovaj festival u Kairouanu prilika za male poduzetnike i kreativce da prikažu kulturnu baštinu grada i promoviraju ekonomski razvoj regije.

Sveukupno, modul se bavio mnogim neriješenim pitanjima vezanim za “The Mouled Festival” uz naglašavanje pozitivnih uticaja projekta AUTREMENT do sada. Stoga, kao što je ilustrovano tokom obuke, ključni i važni akteri treba da podstaknu trenutke dijeljenja i razmjene za najbolje iz lokalnih zajednica u Tunisu.

Projekat AUTREMENT bavi se izazovima održive urbane mobilnosti i planiranja u tuniskim gradovima Kairouan i Mahdia. Da bi se to postiglo, projekat se takođe fokusira na promociju dva grada kroz izgradnju kapaciteta opština i aktera civilnog društva u pogledu organizacije događaja i dijaloga sa građanima.
