Project LADDER on the starting blocks - 26 partners, 20 associates, one major challenge for the EU and its Neighborhood!



The project "LADDER - Local Authorities as Drivers for Development Education and Raising awareness" is about to start. The preview event of the 3-year project, led by ALDA together with other 25 partners and 20 associates from the European Union and its Neighborhood, will take place on 21-22 February in Modena, Italy, in the framework of the festival BUK.

Funded by EuropeAid, LADDER aims at raising awareness and strengthening the capacity of associations of local authorities and civil society organizations to act in a sustainable way as drivers for development, fostering their role of multipliers within their countries, communities and networks, to develop a multi-level active engagement in global challenges.

The European Year of Development 2015 is the right time to address these ambitious goals. ALDA together with all the project partners and associates will start this journey with passion and commitment, aware of the relevance of development cooperation and of its future for citizens, local authorities, and organized civil society in the enlarged Europe.

LADDER is the natural follow up of the project Working Together for Development, which focused on information, training, and networking for local authorities associations and networks of civil society organizations in the field of development cooperation. The will of the great majority of WTD partners in continuing the challenge together by setting higher goals cannot but be considered a key result of the project itself.

Projet LADDER sur blocs de départ - 26 partenaires, 20 associés, un grand défi pour l'Europe et ses Pays du Voisinage !

Le projet " LADDER - Local Authorities as Drivers for Development Education and Raising awareness" (Autorités Locales comme Catalyseurs d'Education au Développement et Sensibilisation) va être lancé. La présentation du projet trisannuel, coordonné par l’ALDA et qui réunit 25 autres partenaires et 20 associés provenant de l'Union Européenne et des pays du Voisinage, se tiendra à Modène (Italie) le 21 et 22 février, dans le contexte du festival BUK.

 

Financé par EuropeAid, LADDER a l’objectif de sensibiliser et renforcer la capacité des collectivités locales et des organisations de la société civile d'agir de manière durable comme catalyseurs du développement, en favorisant ainsi leur rôle de multiplicateurs à l'intérieur des pays, communautés et réseaux respectifs, pour s'engager activement sur plusieurs niveaux dans les défis globaux.

L'année Européenne pour le développement 2015 sera la bonne occasion pour présenter les objectifs ambitieux du projet. L’ALDA, avec, ses partenaires et associés, commencera cette nouvelle aventure avec passion et dévouement, consciente de l'importance de la coopération au développement et des futurs résultats pour les citoyens, les collectivités locales et la société civile organisée dans l'Europe élargie.

LADDER représente la continuation naturelle du projet Working Together for Development (Travailler Ensemble pour le Développement) dont le focus était sur l’information, la formation, et le développement des réseaux d'organisation de la société civile, dans le domaine de la coopération au développement. La volonté de la majorité des partenaires et associés du WTD de continuer le défi ensemble, en fixant des objectifs encore plus ambitieux, est parmi les résultats, les plus concrets atteints par le projet lui-même.

Progetto LADDER sui blocchi di partenza – 26 partner, 20 associati, una grande sfida per l’Europa e i paesi del Vicinato!

Il progetto "LADDER - Local Authorities as Drivers for Development Education and Raising awareness" (Autorità Locali come Catalizzatori di Educazione allo Sviluppo e Sensibilizzazione) sta per essere lanciato. L’anteprima del progetto triennale, coordinato da ALDA e che riunisce altri 25 partnere e 20 associati provenienti dall’Unione Europea e dai paesi del Vicinato, si terrà a Modena, il 21 e 22 febbraio, nel contesto del festival BUK.

Finanziato da EuropeAid, l’obbiettivo di LADDER é quello di sensibilizzare e rafforzare la capacità degli enti locali e delle organizzazioni della società civile ad agire in maniera sostenibile come catalizzatori dello sviluppo, favorendo così il loro ruolo di moltiplicatori all’interno dei rispettivi paesi, comunità e network, per poi impegnarsi attivamente su più livelli nelle sfide globali.

L’anno Europeo per lo Sviluppo 2015 rappresenta l’occasione giusta per presentare gli ambiziosi obbiettivi del progetto. ALDA, insieme ai suoi partner e associati, inizierà questo nuova avventura con passione e dedizione, cosciente dell’importanza della cooperazione allo sviluppo e dei suoi esiti futuri per i cittadini, gli enti locali e la società civile organizzata nell’Europa allargata.

LADDER rappresenta il naturale prosieguo del progetto Working Together for Development (Lavorare Assieme per lo Sviluppo) il cui focus era sull’informazione, la formazione e lo sviluppo di reti di organizzazioni della società civile, nell’ambito della cooperazione allo sviluppo. La volontà di gran parte dei partner e associati di WTD di continuare la sfida insieme, fissando obbiettivi ancora più ambiziosi, è tra i risultati più concreti raggiungi dal progetto stesso.

Проект LADDER выходит на старт – 26 партнеров, 20 участвующих организаций, серьезная задача для Европы и Стран соседства!

Проект "LADDERLocalAuthoritiesasDriversforDevelopmentEducationandRaisingawareness " (Местные власти в качестве катализатора в образовании для развития и повышения уровня информированности) – должен быть запущен в ближайшее время. Это первая ласточка трехлетнего проекта, координируемого ALDA , который объединяет 25 партнеров и 20 участвующих организаций из Европейского Союза и Стран соседства, и который пройдет в Модене 21 и 22 февраля в рамках фестиваля BUK.

Целью LADDER, финансируемого EuropeAid, является сенсибилизация и укрепление способностей местных организаций и организаций гражданского общества действовать устойчивым образом в качестве катализаторов развития, поддерживая, таким образом, свою роль усиления воздействия в соответствующих странах, сообществах и сетях, чтобы активно участвовать в решении проблем глобального характера на разных уровнях.

Европейский год развития 2015 является подходящим поводом, чтобы представить амбициозные цели проекта. ALDA, вместе со своими партнерами и членами, начнет это новое мероприятие с увлечением и преданностью, с осознанием важности сотрудничества для развития и его будущих результатов для граждан, местных организаций и организованного гражданского общества в расширенной Европе.

LADDER представляет собой естественное продолжение проекта WorkingTogetherforDevelopment (Работать вместе для развития), чье внимание было сосредоточено на информировании, образовании и развитии сетей организаций гражданского общества в рамках сотрудничества для развития. Желание большой части партнеров и членов WTD продолжать работать вместе над этими задачами, устанавливая еще более амбициозные цели, стало одним из самых конкретных результатов, достигнутых самим проектом.

Počinje projekat LADDER - 26 partnera, 20 pridruženih partnera, jedan veliki izazov za EU i okolinu!

Projekat " LADDER - Lokalne vlasti kao pokretači razvoja, edukacije i podizanja svesti " uskoro započinje sa realizacijom. Predstavljanje ovog trogodišnjeg projekta, koji predvodi ALDA zajedno sa 25 partnera i 20 saradnika iz Evropske unije i okoline, održaće se od 21-22 februara u Modeni, Italija, u okviru festivala BUK.

Finansiran od strane EuropeAid, LADDER ima za cilj podizanje svesti i jačanje kapaciteta asocijacija lokalnih vlasti i organizacija civilnog društva u smislu njihovog održivog delovanja kao pokretača razvoja, podsticanje njihove uloge multiplikatora u okviru svojih zemalja, zajednica i mreža, kroz razvijanje višestepenog aktivnog angažovanja u globalnim izazovima.

Evropska godina razvoja 2015. je pravo vreme da se pozabavimo ovim ambicioznim ciljevima. ALDA će zajedno sa svim partnerima i saradnicima na projektu započecti ovo putovanje sa velikom motivacijom i posvećenošću, svesni važnosti razvojne saradnje i njene budućnosti za građane, lokalne vlasti i organizacije civilnog društva u proširenoj Evropi.

LADDER je prirodni nastavak projekta Zajedno za razvoj, koji je bio fokusiran na informacije, obuke i umrežavanje za udruženja lokalnih vlasti i mreže organizacija civilnog društva u oblasti razvojne saradnje. Volja velike većine WTD partnera za nastavak zajedničkog izazova, postavljanjem viših ciljeva, se takođe treba smatrati ključnim rezultatom samog projekta.
