The Governing Board Member of ALDA, M. Lucio Gregoretti from Monfalcone, and the Secretary General, Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida, took part in a preparatory meeting for the establishment of the LDA Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine.

The meeting, held in Akmeme (Lithuania) and funded within the programme Working Together for Development (WTD), gave the possibilities to the partners from Europe and Ukraine to exchange views on possibilities of cooperation and to identify new partnership.

Volodymyr Peregudov, Deputy Chairman of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Council, called for the setting up of the Agency: “This initiative is necessary more than ever and we need to open a dialogue between citizens and authorities. Risks of further difficulties could emerge if we do not open and clarify the dialogue”. Mrs Tatyana Kudina from UNDP Ukraine also gave the opportunity to the partners to understand the possibilities of cooperation with their on going Community Development programme.

The programme UNDP Art – with the presence of Mr Francesco Bicciato, connected from Brussels – was also introduced as a key partner for this initiative, moving its first steps in Ukraine.
The meeting was hosted by the city of Akmene and its Mayor, Vitalijus Mitrofanovas, gave a brilliant introduction to the debate and understanding of how the cooperation with Ukraine could be meaningful for them, having gone through such a difficult transition in the last years.
The LDA Ukraine includes the support and partnership of the Lower Silesia (Poland). The action plan identified a possible development of the Agency in Autumn 2014.
