The Balkan Network for Local Democracy is a regional network founded by the European Association for Local Democracy (ALDA) and the seven Local Democracy Agencies (LDAs) from Western Balkans, working for the promotion of active citizen participation, democratic governance principles, local development and co-operation between civil society organizations and local public authorities in the Western Balkan Region. The actions of the BNLD are based on the principle of partnership and multilateral decentralized cooperation.

This event is organized in the framework of the project Regional Youth Compact for Europe, a cooperation initiative launched by 14 CSOs from the EU, Western Balkans and Turkey with the aim to enhance the effective participation of civil society and youth organisations in the EU integration and accession negotiation process through capacity building, awareness raising and advocacy actions organised at local, national and regional level. The project is funded by the European Union.
