On 29th June 2015, Marco Boaria, Head of Resources and Development Unit, and Anna Ditta, Project Development Officer, together with the representatives of the City of Thiene, such as Andrea Zorzan, Councillor for Environment of City of Thiene, were present to the Press Launching Conference of project WE NET in Thiene, Italy.

The project WE NET – Working for Environmentally Educated Towns is financed by the European programme “Europe for Citizens”. The aim of this project is the environmental education focusing on the respect of citizens towards the environment and the adoption of an appropriate behaviour which would not only prevent the pollution and degradation of the cities but which would also stimulate the concrete actions towards sustainable development, according to the priorities of European Year of Development 2015. This two-year project was developed by the City of Thiene, lead partner of the project, in collaboration with ALDA. In this project are involved 12 partners from 8 European countries: France, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Serbia, Malta and Italy.

This project is an important step toward the implementation of better practices in the field of environment and sustainable development of cities. The Councillor for Environment of the City of Thiene, Andrea Zorzan, said: “In the times of lack of finances, every municipality requires the access to the European funds. We managed to work hard. Only 20 projects were admitted and we gained 8th place among projects financed by the programme “Europe for Citizens” which was opened for 39 nations, showing our capacity of creating a project in the international environment. It is a challenge for the City of Thiene and for its administration to be a leader of a twelve-partner project. I think that the City of Thiene deserve to be a leader of the project whose impact is going to influence the whole territory.”

The Secretary General of ALDA, Antonella Valmorbida, added: “The project WE NET represents an important challenge for ALDA – European Association for Local Democracy. WE NET is going to involve the administrations and civil societies of 12 cities from 8 countries from enlarged Europe to deal with the sustainable development topic with focus on recycling. The environmental protection is the crucial concern for the citizens and as such can be transformed into a tool to promote the active citizens participation. During the time of political alienation and the important challenge on the level of environment, WE NET tackles both issues at local and EU level.”
