On 28-29 October 2015, ALDA participated to the event YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE – Sustainable development 2.0, organised by the Civil Society Alliance EYD2015 in the framework of CONCORD, which took place in Milan.
***

This event was the second in the CONCORD EYD2015 project and involved NGOs, institutions and EU citizens, in order to discuss about the new global challenges that all countries have to face: how do we build societies that thrive and that look after the interests of current generations, as well as the interests of future generations, and of the planet? How do we build societies that are fair, prosperous and respectful of the planet we live on?

The event wanted to use the EYD2015 as the opportunity to outreach and work closely with the sectors that are also working for development, such as social sector, trade unions, environmental, gender, health, youth, etc, and it was a good occasion to foster the conversation with other networks in order to share best practices and challenges, identifying what can be done together to enhance the impact of Civil Society actions in Europe and globally and to explain the ‘Universality’ principle of the SGDs.

Furthermore, the key role of Civil Society at all levels in the achievement of the SDGs was highlighted, Local Authorities were invited to become more present in development actions, and of course the participation of citizens was fostered and visibility to initiatives led by citizens and CSOs in the EU and in partner countries promoting solutions to global issues had elevance.

The event was the occasion to clarify and explain key words such as, decentralised cooperation, development localisation and news SDGs, Eastern Partnership, MED policy of EU and local governance.

Marco Boaria, Head of Resources and Development Unit of ALDA, participated as member of the Steering Committee of the EYD2015 Civil Society Alliance, while Antonella Valmorbida, Secretary General of ALDA, moderated the workshop on the role of LAs in development on 29th October.
