On the 25th July, ALDA Secretary General, Antonella Valmorbida, was interviewed on project WE NET – Working for Environmentally Educated Towns during the radio broadcast “L’altra Europa” (The Other Europe) on Radio 24, the official radio of the Italian economic newspaper “Il sole 24 ore”.

The aim of the project, which is funded by Europe for Citizens Programme, is to educate and raise people’s awareness on environmental protection and on the adoption of appropriate behaviours, which would not only prevent pollution and degradation of cities, but also stimulate concrete economic and business actions towards sustainable development, in line with the priorities of European Year of Development 2015. The project, led by the Municipality of Thiene together with ALDA, will include both international events and territorial initiatives, which will actively engage citizens and schools through knock-on activities.

The interview also represented the occasion to present the work and framework in which ALDA works. “Our aim is to develop an attitude towards active participation, because active local participation creates a sense of responsibility. […] Our focus is on local activism, meaning that all the citizens should have the possibility to work for their own communities”, affirmed our Secretary General, Antonella Valmorbida.
