Improving cities through citizens’ participation – ALDA in Spain

ALDA participated in the event "Participación ciudadana - Una nueva forma de gestionar la ciudad" (Citizens’ participation: new ways to manage the city), which took place in Torrent, Spain, on 13th February. 

The event was organized by the Municipality of Torrent, in collaboration with ALDA, represented by Marco Boaria, Head of Resources and development department, Sofia Corsi, Fundraising and external relations manager, and ALDA’s Ambassador for Spain, Dorothee Fischer. They presented ALDA in all its complexity and held a master class about European active citizenship. 
The event was dynamically characterized also by other experts’ speeches and by a panel discussion, in which both citizens and local authorities took part. 
The main topic of the event concerned good practices of citizens’ participation in Spain, as well as in the rest of Europe, stressing on its importance to promote a good working local governance and to contain political extremism, which is the core of ALDA’s mission.
