Mrs. Imislawa GORSKA

International School of Bydgoszcz, (PL), Principal, (Vice President, bureau member - Coordinator Eastern Partnership Working Group)

  • How and why you got in contact with ALDA's work?

    We were invited as representatives of the Municipality of Bydgoszcz by Mr. Dobrica Milovanović, who was at that time the President of the Kragujevac City Council. Kragujevac is our partner city so we decided to strengthen our cooperation through networking in ALDA.

  • What motivated you to be a candidate for the Governing Board?

    I am very active and can find time to involve myself, I have many connections on the local and national level which can be useful to develop the network, and therefore I have also a plan to involve more Polish actors. I brought my Region (Kuyavian-Pomeranian Region) to be member of ALDA and found support for LDA Georgia.

  • Why fighting for local democracy and citizen participation – how does that contribute to a better world?

    Many countries in Europe, including mine (Poland), went through the transition period and sacrificed a lot to establish democracy. If we do not fight for local democracy and citizen participation, the sacrifice we have done so far will be lost and without it, Europe will not be stable and sustainable.

  • What is the biggest achievement of ALDA so far?

    I would say that the biggest achievements are getting successful projects like LADDER, opening an LDA in Ukraine, and having a new composition in the Governing Board.

  • And what is your dream for ALDA – how will it look like at the end of your mandate?

    To have Torun with us and more cities or regions like Pomeranian Region. To open the second LDA in Ukraine. To find partners for LDAs, which enable to support their financial basis.

  • What will your motto be, during the next four years in ALDA's Governing Board?

    Enthusiasm. The sustaining power of all great actions.
