On 21-22 June 2022, Brussels hosted the European Development Days 2022 (EDD), Europe’s most important forum on international partnership organised by the European Commission.
Entitled “Global Gateway: building sustainable partnerships for a connected world” this year’s edition was dedicated not only to the European Strategy as such, but also on how to improve and foster it in terms of digital, energy and transport. The latter, especially, was the realm within which ALDA+ will provide its contribution!
Hence, ALDA+ joined this international event by actively participating with a stand addressing “Urban development, smart & interconnected cities. Together for fostering Good Governance at Local and Global Level”.
Concretely, based on the positive example of AUTREMENT project, currently implemented in the Tunisian cities of Kairouan and Mahdia by the ALDA office in Strasbourg, the stand showcased project’s good practices on sustainable urban mobility, which can be taken as an example for other cities.

Despite its paperless format, our stand engaged participants through digital tools and tricks: not only informative slides presenting ALDA and its spin off ALDA+, but also an interactive quiz on soft mobility and sustainability! Thus, a participation under the banner of sustainability and… discovery!
Last but not least, theEuropean Development Days aim to bring the “development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges”.
For this reason we are extremely glad and proud to take active part in such a dynamic and crucial event. More, the EDD2022 were the perfect spot to showcase, once more, ALDA’s flagship initiative the “European Support to Local Democracy”, since it provides a complete overview on ALDA’s expertises in all target regions and underlines the fundamental role of cooperation.
