It is official: ALDA General Assembly is coming soon and with it a whole week of special events under the banner of the Conference on the Future of Europe.

***

ALDA is extremely proud to announce that its General Assembly 2021 is going to happen on Friday, June 25th, at the end of an eventful week starting on Saturday, June 19th.

Taking place completely online for the second time in its history (and hopefully the last!), ALDA General Assembly 2021 and its related events will follow a common theme, being ALDA as key stakeholder in stimulating productive dialogue and participation in the Conference on the Future of Europe.

Participation, Involvement, Dialogue, Citizens, Union, Shared Solutions, Democracy: those words are not only ALDA’s main values, but also the pillars of the CoFoE, whose main objective is to encourage citizens to share ideas on the Europe we want to live in and thus shaping our future together.

Within this framework, the General Assembly and the related events will match with the set of topics identified by the CoFoE (i.e. Climate change and environment, digital transformation, migration, European Democracy,…) and will serve to stimulate reflection and discussion on key issues for our future.

As we approach the General Assembly, on Thursday June 24th ALDA Governing Board members will gather online, accompanying our members and networks in a crescendo up until the General Assembly and the Final Conference on Friday, June 25th

Among the twenty or so events scheduled, the ALDA General Assembly will kick off right during the launch of the BUK Festival – the Festival of Small and Medium-sized Publishing, in Modena (Italy), organised by the cultural association Progettarte, member of ALDA and whose President Mr. Francesco Zarzana is also vice-president of the Governing Board.

Discussing “the role of culture in the European Union”, the event fits with the CoFoE’s Education, Culture, European Values topic. Antonella Valmorbida, ALDA Secretary General will be among the keynote speakers with a speech tackling the importance of culture, as a fundamental value for the individual and the community and as a driving force for the construction of a more inclusive and united Europe.

The next events, mainly online, will then bring the attention on one side on migration management and migrants’ inclusion in the labor market, with the contribution of the project LIME – Labor Integration for Migrants Employment. On the other, the theme of digital transformation will be addressed through the project DIGITAL – Supporting Democratic Union and Active Citizenship in Digital Era

Particularly relevant, the General Assembly week will mark the first meeting of ALDA Advisory Board and will see the launch of ALDA Working Groups, with dedicated sessions on June 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd.

As we approach the General Assembly, on Thursday June 24th ALDA Governing Board members will gather online, accompanying our members and networks in a crescendo up until the General Assembly and the Final Conference on Friday, June 25th.

Take a look at the Agenda!

Stay tuned and.. save the dates!
