ALDA has strengthened its ties with Northern Ireland last week, where a training course has been delivered in the city of Derry to over 30 participants. People involved in the sessions were predominantly representatives of associations, NGOs, and community groups, locally active in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland.

The topic of the training was about project management, especially focused on conflict resolution and citizens’ engagement, a thematic which found all participants truly interested and committed to contribute to the development of their communities by increasing their sense of belonging at the local level through developing and implementing, with a bottom-up approach, different kinds of activities in various sectors, such as youth unemployment, culture, social issues youth education, peace building and conflict resolution.
Marco Boaria, ALDA’s project manager, delivered the training and punctually provided participants with the methodology to develop and implement successful projects, sharing the experience of ALDA.

A session on fundraising and EU funds was also proposed, followed by workshops aimed in identifying common goals and projects which may foster cooperation among different organizations in Northern Ireland as well as other partners in Europe (and beyond).

Following up on the positive outcome of the experience, a second training is foreseen in Belfast at the end of November, where other organizations will benefit from ALDA’s knowledge and experience, which will surely be a great opportunity to identify other common paths of cooperation.
