During the inauguration our staff presented the 2014-2020 EU Programming Period, with special emphasis on Europe for Citizens and Erasmus + programmes, in which ALDA is particularly active. The Director of ALDA Antonella Valmorbida stated: “ 2013 is the European Year of Citizens, therefore it is crucial to reflect on the rights linked to European citizenship. To encourage active citizenship we should stimulate civic participation and provide all the necessary tools, and ALDA has always been working in this direction”.
