On Monday, April 26th, on the occasion of the World Democracy Forum (WDF), the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe has organised an online event. This ninth edition of the WDF foresees monthly debates on different topics, ending on November 2021 with the final event. Having that in mind, let’s see what the April edition was about! Focusing on the environment, the debate served as a moment of discussion and reflection on the actions taken at local level as far as green transition initiatives and citizens’ participation are concerned.
Promoting debate among institutions and representatives of the civil society is an essential factor
In light of her expertise on environmental issues, Ms Nataša Vučković, ALDA Governing Board member, was among the keynote speakers of the event. Representing the Center for Democracy Foundation, Ms Vučković shared key insights on the topic as well as good practices of green transition measures, with a specific focus on the Balkan Region. Furthermore, she has a proven track on rule of law, human rights and parliamentary procedures; being also a member of Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).
On behalf of ALDA as a whole, we take the occasion to thank and congratulate the Congress for the organisation of this event: we are deeply convinced that promoting debate among institutions and representatives of the civil society is an essential factor to raise awareness and stimulate concrete actions and cooperation among stakeholders.
