Volunteering is key to citizens’ participation in Europe
On Sunday 6th April, during the event of Agorà della Solidarietà (Agora of Solidarity) in Vicenza (Italy), Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida, Director of ALDA – Association of Local Democracy Agencies – held an interesting speech on Volunteering.
“Volunteering is a fundamental element for citizens’ participation in Europe” said Mrs. Valmorbida. Indeed, volunteering is a way to be part of development, a simple as well as powerful sign of active participation, an important contribution to support ideas and values, sharing the same mission.
ALDA supports volunteering even through Volunteers 4 Democracy programme, which aims to the collaboration with people motivated in supporting democracy, developing their skills, practicing with languages and having many other opportunities to be part of ALDA mission.
