ALDA’s commitment to good governance and citizens’ participation at the local level: EuSave and ACHIEVE as new European challenges!
In ALDA, we are always looking for innovative ways of fostering and promoting the local good governance and citizens’ participation at the local level in Europe, as well as in its neighbouring countries.
Over the next years, we will be working in this direction, also thanks to EuSave and ACHIEVE, two new European projects aiming at strengthening the link between civil society and communities across the continent.
The first project, EuSave, will involve eight countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Spain) and it will aim at creating a network of European rural villages through the promotion of their material and immaterial cultural and natural heritage for a sustainable and inclusive social and economic development. Six international events will be organised in different countries, and ALDA will and host a 3-days workshop in Brussels, on the topic “The new European ruralities: Innovative local development strategies and historic villages 2”, in December 2020.
ACHIEVE will involve twelve partners from eleven countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia) and it will strengthen the European identity which links Eastern countries through their historic, religious and artistic heritage, in order to challenge Euroscepticism. In this case, ALDA will oversee the implementation of the project’s actions, through coordination and dissemination activities, and it will attend four international events and two international seminars on EU values as a tool for recognising common European roots and on how to involve citizens in local political life.
ALDA is ready for these two pan-European efforts to strengthen citizens’ participation in common politics and to foster democracy, in all its dimensions, in the Enlarged Europe.
