In its 20 years of activity, ALDA – the European Association of Local Democracy has strenuously supported good governance and empowered local communities all over Europe and in neighbouring countries by sharing best practices in order to encourage a resilient approach to new challenges. In these unprecedented times, dismayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all aware that local authorities are confronted by significant defies. For this reason and in line with its mission, ALDA wants to offer everything that is in its power to support and assist particularly affected municipalities, and to share new tools to overcome these challenges as well as respond effectively to the needs of their communities.

 CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: in order to support Local Authorities heavily affected by the Covid-19 crisis, ALDA is selecting a group of 30 municipalities, that are not yet members, which are creating impact in severely affected communities and providing services to people that have been adversely touched.

ALDA will offer the selected candidates a one-year free membership that will give the municipalities access to a number of services in order to assist the new members in the recovery process with ad-hoc information on specific funding programmes, free training and capacity-building opportunities, invitations to events and networking occasions.

ALDA’S BENEFITS FOR MEMBERS: being a member of ALDA already normally offers a scope of opportunities such as information exchange, participation in international events, opportunities to join EU consortia and transnational projects, assistance in finding the proper funding opportunities (we regularly monitor 400 public and private funding programmes), searches for international partners, and visibility and promotion of the member’s activities within our network.

In addition to that, ALDA has launched a few new activities that are member-specific to celebrate its 20th Anniversary:

  1. The ALDATalks, monthly webinars on a specific topic of interest involving the Association’s members as speakers, with a chance for them to showcase their projects;
  2. Two free trainings per year, including a presentation of the main funding opportunities for the new programming period (2021-2027) and new tools to face the consequences of the covid-19;
  3. Weekly visibility on our social media to one of our members;
  4. Coming soon: a new dedicated section for members within our website.

Interested in joining us for free and receiving the support from our big network?
