Balkan kaleidoscope and WISE at the starting blocks

ALDA is delighted to announce that the projects While Innovating and Strengthening Europe (WISE) and Balkan kaleidoscope have been approved by the European Commission.


The project WISE, led by ALDA – The European Association for Local Democracy, and the project Balkan kaleidoscope, led by the Local Democracy Agency (LDA) Subotica and supported by ALDA, have the common mission to raise awareness of remembrance, common history and the European Union’s aim to promote peace.


WISE’s objective is simple yet ambitious – the project aims to encourage active citizenship at the local and Union level by developing citizen’s understanding of the European Union and its history, through a set of local activities focused on informing citizens on the EU. The project will launch and come to its end with two international events in Rome, Italy and Lisbon, Portugal, where the first and the last constituent treaty of the EU were signed, to track the path of the EU project throughout the years.


Likewise, Balkan kaleidoscope aims to offer an opportunity of remembrance of the Yugoslav Wars and promote peace and solidarity in the Balkans, through trainings for teachers and student research activities that encourage a multiperspectivity approach in teaching the history of the Yugoslav Wars. The project mainly involves former Yugoslav countries (Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia), as well as France, Italy and Germany. 


Both projects are supported by the programme Europe for Citizens of the European Commission.
