EYCA Working Groups’ meeting in Brussels and Italian National Alliance Steering Committee
The second EYCA Working Groups’ meeting will be held in Brussels on the 5th March. ALDA Director, Mrs Antonella Valmorbida, will co-chair with Diogo Pinto (EMI) the Working Group I on Participatory Citizenship and Civil Dialogue.
During the session participants will be involved in a creative laboratory to identify solutions to tackle the obstacles to participation and civil dialogue identified by the WG1 during its first meeting. The objective of WG1 is to identify and formulate shared recommendations aimed at strengthening the involvement of European citizens in EU policy-making and engage them on a comprehensive civil dialogue. The result of the WG’s work will be integrated into the general position that the European Alliance will submit to all EU Institutions by the end of the year.
ALDA, as one of the promoters of National Alliance in Italy, participated on the 1st of March to the Steering Committee in Rome. The Italian Alliance is one of the established National Coalitions, which will develop in the EU Member states the vision of active and participatory citizenship.
All the representatives of national Working Groups participated to the meeting reporting about WG organization and next steps. The Steering Committee discussed about the organization and participation to main national events along the year in line with principles of the EYCA.
