Join us on July 8th: the future of the Eastern Partnership beyond 2020

As part of ALDA’s 20th anniversary webinar series, on Wednesday July 8th, 2020 at 10:30 am CEST we will be focusing on the Eastern Partnership as one of the four main areas of ALDA activity.

While there was some scepticism when the programme was launched a decade ago, the Eastern Partnership has effectively filled a vacuum in terms of dialogue and of providing the eastern neighbours with a prospect of closer integration with the EU, and there is relative optimism from the EU’s side that the EaP is there to stay in one form or another.

Together with our high-level panelists, we will aim to explore what major changes shall be expected in the EU – EaP relations in the next decade; how EaP member countries should act to get most out of this Partnership; in what way ordinary citizens benefited of EaP framework in the past 10 years and how/if they will benefit in the future; and what local authorities shall do to be more involved in the implementation of the EaP agenda.

Alongside the introductory and conclusive speeches of ALDA President Ориано Оточан and ALDA Secretary General Антонелла Вальморбида, the webinar will be moderated by ALDA EaP & Central Asia coordinator Александру Койка and animated by the keynote speeches of

Vassilis Maragos, Head of Unit in DG NEAR (Armenia, Belarus, Azerbaijan & EaP) of the EC
;
Natalya Yerashevich, Director of Secretariat of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum
;
и Boris Navasardian, President of the Yerevan Press Club.

Questions will be encouraged; registration is required, but free and open to everybody. The event will take place in английский, with interpretation in русский.

Please find the complete agenda of the event HERE.

Looking forward to seeing you there and discussing together the future of the EaP!

The final publication of the PARFAIT Project is now online!

This publication is the achievement of several years of intensive work and commitment to women’s rights, carried out through the PARFAIT project.

It features the testimonies of many actors who have actively participated in the project, such as elected women who have followed coaching sessions delivered by the PARFAIT project, and reveals all the initiatives carried out by local Tunisian associations on gender equality.

This publication is intended to be a real motivational and inspiring tool for all those reading it, especially women and civil society actors, from Tunisia and elsewhere. It is also addressed to Tunisian ministries and donors through the recommendations drawn from the lessons learned during the 30 months of the project, in the hope of giving a further push towards the achievement of full gender equality in Tunisia, starting at the local level!

The PARFAIT project is co-funded by the European Union through the EuropeAid programme, led by ALDA in partnership with the Coalition for Women of Tunisia, Европейское партнерство за демократию Tunisia and the Агентство местной демократии Тунис, and was implemented in Tunisia (governorates of Tunis, Jendouba, Mahdia, Gafsa, Kairouan and Kébili) from October 2017 to April 2020.

Thank you for coming! A recap of our Thursday Strolls

From April 2nd to June 25th, in the context of the coronavirus lockdown, ALDA held a series of cultural webinars named “Thursday Strolls” with the slogan #stayathome, ALDA takes you around.

Starting on Zoom to then land on Facebook live streaming, the series constituted a wonderful journey – at times in Italian, at times in English – through a number of places, contexts, and issues, which regularly convened a varied audience on Thursdays at 6:30pm. Thanks to the inavaluable contributions of different experts, week by week the Thursday Strolls aimed to show one more piece of the world and convey a message in line with ALDA’s core values in 30 to 60-minute digital pills, while always also giving space to public participation through open questions.

Европейское Thursday Strolls in English, in particular, were honoured to host the following special guests:

  • Shadi Roushahbaz on the Persian New Year and its traditions
  • Sergio Meggiolan (La Piccionaia) presenting /e•mò•ti•con/ – an international call for artists
  • serial traveller Elisa Fourt on her world explorations for work, study and volunteering purposes
  • and senior strategic advisor to Libyan municipalities Benedetta Oddo on “her” Libya, its struggles and possibilities.

Европейское Thursday Strolls in Italian, in turn, were lucky to see the interventions of:

  • то Refugees Welcome team of the city of Vicenza, Italy
  • Antonio Nicoletti and Jacopo Bassetto presenting the book “Ci pensiamo noi”: proposals for a new Italy that gives room to youth with Association Tortuga
  • writer and director Francesco Zarzana, member of the ALDA Governing Board and president of Association Progettarte, with his short film “Conciliare stanca” against violence on women
  • Elisa Virgili (ActionAid Italia), Giovanna Vingelli (Centro Interdipartimentale Women’s Studies “Milly Villa” dell’Università della Calabria) and Antonello Massenti (CIES Albania) on women, work and empowerment
  • Sofia Corsi (ALDA) and Tommaso Franchin (exvUoto teatro) on the participatory process of Gruppo Scintilla and a very special theatre workshop focused on “narrating places”
  • and globetrotter Dario Virgis on his extensive solo journeys and on personal well-being.

And the exchange of views keeps being encouraged: the sessions are in fact now available on the ALDA Youtube channel in a dedicated playlist, where everybody is very much invited to comment and continue the conversation, expressing personal perspectives, experiences, and food for thought on the different topics. It’s good to connect!

Improving caregivers’ skills: a Mind inclusion online training

From 10th to 19th of June, the Mind Inclusion partners held an interesting online training. For a total of 7 days, international participants discovered new things, shared experiences and just generally had a lot of fun!

The participants had access to a full training by mixing the attendance to theoretical sessions with practical, hands-on activities. The goals of this training were mainly to increase knowledge about the methodology and tools developed in the Mind Inclusion project; increase facilitation skills related to innovative educational methods; and increase knowledge about the complex concept of inclusion.

It was a great opportunity to gather the project partners as well as educators and caregivers working with people with intellectual disabilities. Together, the consortium spent a great time online. A big thank you to all the participants!

Started in November 2018, the Включение разума 2.0 project , funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, aims to find sustainable and inclusive solutions that help caregivers improve their skills, on one hand, and allow disabled individuals to participate in social life on the other hand – with to help people with disabilities with overcoming obstacles when accessing public places through technology. The project consortium gathers lead partner Маргарита: Società Cooperativa Onlus (Италия) вместе с Научно-исследовательский институт Polibienestar, Фонд ИНТРАС (Испания), Social IT Software & Consulting Srl (Италия), Lietuvos sutrikusio intelekto zmoniu globos bendrija «Viltis» (Lithuania) and ALDA.

EPIC focus groups: successful conclusions and upcoming plans

From June 17th to 19th, 2020, the EPIC project hosted three online “focus groups” together with its whole partner consortium, led by Dr Giovanna Astolfo of the Bartlett DPU and by ALDA project manager Dolinda Cavallo as part of the Research and Data collection phase of the project.

Said focus groups aimed to collectively discuss existing practices of migrant integration with partners in each of the involved case cities, sharing challenges, lessons learned and local needs, with the end goal of reaching a common understanding of trends and obstacles and of creating the ground for the capacity-building and matchmaking phases of the project by identifying the priorities that will be the core of the next actions.

Each of the three sessions showcased the individual presentations of small groups of partners on their ongoing work and its adaptation to the Covid-19 outbreak and its consequences. The discussion was then further developed on matters of integration perception; integration practices and their challenges; specific city needs; unrecognized integration practices; and the effectiveness of municipalities, NGOs and the government in supporting this type of work. The impact of the pandemic was deeply discussed and analysed, too, in the attempt to find common issues and trends across the different territories.

More specifically, the first day saw the participation of representatives from Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, то Municipality of Ioannina, то Municipality of Oberhausen, and the Metropolitan Area of Gdansk. On the second day, the focus group hosted representatives of JRS Хорватия, то Municipality of Lisbon, то Municipality of Brescia, ADL-Z, and Symbiosis; while the last day concluded the works with the Sardinia Region, Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, KITEV, то City of Sisak и JRS Portugal.

All EPIC partners actively took part in the exchange, bringing to the table similar yet different experiences and sharing new and creative ideas that made the conversation stimulating and meaningful! What next? As the surveys carried out by each EPIC partner draw to a close, the consortium is getting ready to meet in Spain in October 2020 to identify the resulting priorities!

In the meantime, the EPIC newsletter will be launched soon! To keep up to date with all news, sign up and receive all information about the project surveys, interviews and focus groups on migrant integration

Les groupes de réflexion EPIC : conclusions réussies et prochains projets 

Du 17 au 19 juin 2020, le projet EPIC a accueilli trois « groupes de réflexion » en ligne, avec l’ensemble de son consortium partenaire, mené par le Dr Giovanna Astolfo du Bartlett DPU et par la responsable de projets de l’ALDA Dolinda Cavallo, dans le cadre de la phase de recherche et de collecte de données du projet.

Ces groupes de réflexion en question visaient à discuter collectivement des pratiques existantes sur l’intégration des migrants avec des partenaires de chacune des villes concernées, partager les défis rencontrés, les leçons apprises et les besoins locaux. Ceci dans l’objectif final d’atteindre une compréhension commune des tendances et des obstacles tout en aménageant un terrain pour le renforcement des capacités et la mise en relation des différentes phases du projet en identifiant les priorités qui seront au cœur des prochaines actions.

Chacune des trois sessions a mis en avant les présentations individuelles de petits groupes de partenaires sur leur travail en cours et son adaptation face à la pandémie de Covid-19 et ses conséquences. La discussion a ensuite été développée sur les questions de perception de l’intégration, les pratiques d’intégration et ses défis, les besoins spécifiques de chaque ville, les pratiques d’intégration méconnues et l’efficacité des municipalités, ONG et gouvernements pour soutenir ce type d’action. En outre, les conséquences de la pandémie ont été discutées et analysées en profondeur dans une tentative de trouver des tendances et des solutions communes à travers les différents territoires.

En détail, le premier jour a été consacré à la participation des représentants de Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, de la municipalité d’Ioannina, de la municipalité d’Oberhausen et de la région métropolitaine de Gdansk. Durant le deuxième jour, le groupe de réflexion a accueilli des représentants de JRS Хорватия, de la municipalité de Lisbonne, de la municipalité de Brescia, d’ADL-Z et de Symbiosis. Le dernier jour a clôt les travaux avec des intervenants de la région de Sardaigne, de Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, de KITEV, de la ville de Sisak et de JRS Portugal.

Tous les partenaires EPIC ont activement pris part aux échanges, réunissant autour de la table de expériences similaires bien que différentes et partageant de nouvelles idées créatives qui ont rendu la conversation stimulante et constructive ! Que se passera-t-il ensuite ? Alors que les enquêtes menées par chaque partenaire EPIC touchaient à leur fin, le consortium se tient prêt à se retrouver en Espagne en octobre 2020 pour identifier les priorités qui en résultent!

Pendant ce temps, la newsletter EPIC sera bientôt publiée! Pour rester à jour avec toutes les actualités, inscrivez-vous et recevez toutes les informations à propos des enquêtes du projet ; des entretiens et des groupes de réflexion sur l’intégration des migrants ; des activités de renforcement des capacités pour les collectivités territoriales et les ONG ; des 8 projets pilotes ; des recommandations politiques ; des campagnes de communications locales et des évènements locaux et internationaux.

Lo scopo era di discutere insieme ai partner di tutte le città coinvolte le pratiche esistenti di integrazione dei migranti, condividendo sfide, lezioni imparate e bisogni locali, con l’idea di ottenere un quadro di insieme dei trend e degli ostacoli nei vari Paesi, di fatto definendo le priorità chiave e preparando il terreno per la successiva fase di capacity-building e matchmaking.

In ognuna delle sessioni sono state fatte presentazioni individuali in piccoli gruppi di partner, che hanno mostrato come hanno adattato il loro lavoro allo scoppio della pandemia mondiale. La discussione è poi proseguita verso tematiche di percezione dell’integrazione, pratiche di integrazione e relative sfide, bisogni specifici delle città, pratiche di integrazione non riconosciute ed efficienza di municipalità, NGOs e governi nel supportare questo tipo di iniziative. L’impatto della pandemia è stato ampiamento discusso e analizzato, cercando di identificare problematiche e trend comuni ai diversi territori.

Più precisamente, il primo giorno ha visto la partecipazione di rappresentanti di Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, del Comune di Ioannina, del Comune di Oberhausen, e della Area Metropolitana di Danzica. Il focus group del secondo giorno ha ospitato relatori di JRS Croazia, del Comune di Lisbona, del Comune di Brescia, di ADL-Z, e di Symbiosis; infine, l’ultimo giorno si è concluso con gli interventi della Regione Sardegna, di Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, di KITEV, della Città di Sisak e di JRS Portogallo.

Tutti i partner di EPIC sono stati parte attiva dello scambio online, portando esperienze simili ma con prospettive diverse e condividendo idee innovative e creative che hanno reso la conversazione stimolante e significativa. E adesso? Con la chiusura dei sondaggi, il consorzio di EPIC si prepara ad incontrarsi dal vivo in Spagna a Ottobre 2020 per identificare le priorità che sono emerse dai risultati.

Nel frattempo, la newsletter di EPIC è prossima al lancio! Per restare aggiornati sulle novità, iscrivetevi e riceverete tutte le informazioni sui sondaggi, le interviste e i focus group sull’integrazione dei migranti, le attività di acquisizione competenze per autorità locali e associazioni non governative, gli 8 progetti principali, policy recommendations, campagne di comunicazione locali ed eventi.

Фокус-группы EPIC: успешные выводы и планы на будущее

В период с 17 по 19 июня 2020 года в рамках проекта EPIC были организованы три онлайн ”фокус-группы” вместе со всем партнерским консорциумом, возглавляемым доктором Джованна Астольфо из DPU в Бартлетте и руководителем проекта ALDA Долиндой Кавалло в рамках этапа исследований и сбора данных проекта.

Упомянутые фокус-группы были нацелены на коллективное обсуждение существующих практик интеграции мигрантов с партнерами в каждом из участвующих тематических городов, обмен опытом, извлеченными уроками и местными потребностями с конечной целью достижения общего понимания тенденций и препятствий и создания основы для развития потенциала и согласования проекта путем определения приоритетов, которые станут основой последующих действий.

На каждой из трех сессий демонстрировались отдельные презентации небольших групп партнеров об их текущей работе и ее адаптации к вспышке Covid-19 и ее последствиям. Затем была продолжена дискуссия по вопросам интеграционного восприятия; интеграционные практики и их проблемы; конкретные потребности города; непризнанные методы интеграции; и эффективность муниципалитетов, НПО и правительства в поддержке этого вида работы. Влияние пандемии также обсуждалось и анализировалось в попытке найти общие проблемы и тенденции на разных территориях.

В частности, в первый день приняли участие представители Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, муниципалитета Янина, муниципалитета Оберхаузена и столичного района Гданьска. Во второй день в фокус-группу были приглашены представители JRS Хорватия, муниципалитета Лиссабона, муниципалитета Брешии, ADL-Z и Симбиоза; в то время как последний день завершил работу с регионом Сардиния, Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, KITEV, городом Сисак и JRS Portugal.

Все партнеры EPIC принимали активное участие в обмене, привнося схожий, но разный опыт и делясь новыми и креативными идеями, которые делали разговор стимулирующим и значимым! Что дальше? По мере того как опросы, проводимые каждым партнером EPIC, подходят к концу, консорциум готовится встретиться в Испании в октябре 2020 года, чтобы определить итоговые приоритеты!

Тем временем, информационный бюллетень EPIC будет запущен в ближайшее время! Чтобы быть в курсе всех новостей, зарегистрируйтесь и получите всю информацию об опросах проекта, интервью и фокус-группах по интеграции мигрантов; деятельность по наращиванию потенциала местных органов власти и НПО; его 8 пилотных проектов; политические рекомендации; местные коммуникационные кампании; и международные и местные события.

Fokus grupe projekta “EPIC”: uspešni zaklјučci i predstojeći planovi

Od 17. do 19. juna 2020, projekat “Epic” bio je domaćin tri online “fokus grupe” zajedno sa celim svojim partnerskim konzorcijumom, na čelu sa dr Giovanna Astolfo iz “Bartlett DPU” i ALDA-inom projektnom menadžerkom Dolindom Cavallo kao deo istraživačkog tima projekta.

Navedene fokus grupe imale su cilј da zajednički razgovaraju na temu postojećih praksi integracije migranata sa partnerima u svakom od gradova ukljčenih u projekat, da razmenjuju iskustva, izazove, naučene lekcije i lokalne potrebe, sa krajnjim cilјem postizanja zajedničkog razumevanja trendova i prepreka i stvaranja osnova za fazu izgradnje kapaciteta i povezivanja projekta identifikovanjem prioriteta koji će biti srž budućih akcija.

Svaka od tri sesije prikazala je pojedinačne prezentacije malih grupa partnera o njihovom tekućem radu i prilagođavanju situaciji u vezi sa epidemijom virusa Covid-19 i njegovim posledicama. Diskusija je zatim dodatno razvijena o pitanjima percepcije integracije; integracione prakse i njihovi izazovi; specifične potrebe grada; neprepoznata praksa integracije; i efikasnost opština, nevladinih organizacija i vlada u podržavanju ove vrste rada. Uticaj pandemije takođe je detaljno debatovan i analiziran u pokušaju da se pronađu zajednička pitanja i trendovi na različitim teritorijama.

Prvog dana učestvovali su predstavnici iz Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, Opštine Ioannina, Opštine Oberhausen i Gdanjske metropolitske oblasti. Drugog dana, fokus grupa je ugostila predstavnike JRS Hrvatska, Opštine Lisabon, Opštine Brescia, ADL-Z i Symbiosis; dok je poslednji dan zaklјučen radovima sa Regiona Sardinija, Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, KITEV, Grad Sisak i JRS Portugal.

Svi “EPIC” partneri aktivno su učestvovali u razmeni, donoseći za sto slična, ali različita iskustva i razmenjujući nove i kreativne ideje zbog kojih je razgovor bio podsticajan i smislen! Šta dalјe? Kako se ankete svakog “EPIC” partnera privode kraju, konzorcijum se priprema za sastanak u Španiji u oktobru 2020. godine kako bi identifikovao prioritete proistekle iz rezultata!

U međuvremenu, “Epic newsletter” će biti pokrenut uskoro! Da biste bili u toku sa svim vestima, prijavite se da dobijate sve informacije o projektnim anketama, intervjuima i fokus grupama o integraciji migranata; aktivnostima na izgradnji kapaciteta lokalnih vlasti i nevladinih organizacija; 8 pilot projekata ; preporuka politika ; lokalnih komunikacionih kampanja; međunarodnih i lokalnih događaja.

يحصي مشروع المنبر الأوروبي لدمج المدن  بتمويل من برنامج الاتحاد الأوروبي للجوء والهجرة والاندماج و هذا البرنامج منسق مع آلدا و يهدف إلى إنشاء شبكة من السلطات المحلية والمنظمات غير الحكومية لتبادل المعرفة وأفضل الممارسات لإدماج مواطني البلدان الثالثة.

From June 17th to 19th, 2020, the EPIC project hosted three online “focus groups” together with its whole partner consortium, led by Dr Giovanna Astolfo of the Bartlett DPU and by ALDA project manager Dolinda Cavallo as part of the Research and Data collection phase of the project.

Said focus groups aimed to collectively discuss existing practices of migrant integration with partners in each of the involved case cities, sharing challenges, lessons learned and local needs, with the end goal of reaching a common understanding of trends and obstacles and of creating the ground for the capacity-building and matchmaking phases of the project by identifying the priorities that will be the core of the next actions.

Each of the three sessions showcased the individual presentations of small groups of partners on their ongoing work and its adaptation to the Covid-19 outbreak and its consequences. The discussion was then further developed on matters of integration perception; integration practices and their challenges; specific city needs; unrecognized integration practices; and the effectiveness of municipalities, NGOs and the government in supporting this type of work. The impact of the pandemic was deeply discussed and analysed, too, in the attempt to find common issues and trends across the different territories.

More specifically, the first day saw the participation of representatives from Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, то Municipality of Ioannina, то Municipality of Oberhausen, and the Metropolitan Area of Gdansk. On the second day, the focus group hosted representatives of JRS Хорватия, то Municipality of Lisbon, то Municipality of Brescia, ADL-Z, and Symbiosis; while the last day concluded the works with the Sardinia Region, Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, KITEV, то City of Sisak и JRS Portugal.

All EPIC partners actively took part in the exchange, bringing to the table similar yet different experiences and sharing new and creative ideas that made the conversation stimulating and meaningful! What next? As the surveys carried out by each EPIC partner draw to a close, the consortium is getting ready to meet in Spain in October 2020 to identify the resulting priorities!

In the meantime, the EPIC newsletter will be launched soon! To keep up to date with all news, sign up and receive all information about the project surveys, interviews and focus groups on migrant integration
; its capacity-building activities for local authorities and NGOs
; its 8 pilot projects

Les groupes de réflexion EPIC : conclusions réussies et prochains projets 

Du 17 au 19 juin 2020, le projet EPIC a accueilli trois « groupes de réflexion » en ligne, avec l’ensemble de son consortium partenaire, mené par le Dr Giovanna Astolfo du Bartlett DPU et par la responsable de projets de l’ALDA Dolinda Cavallo, dans le cadre de la phase de recherche et de collecte de données du projet.

Ces groupes de réflexion en question visaient à discuter collectivement des pratiques existantes sur l’intégration des migrants avec des partenaires de chacune des villes concernées, partager les défis rencontrés, les leçons apprises et les besoins locaux. Ceci dans l’objectif final d’atteindre une compréhension commune des tendances et des obstacles tout en aménageant un terrain pour le renforcement des capacités et la mise en relation des différentes phases du projet en identifiant les priorités qui seront au cœur des prochaines actions.

Chacune des trois sessions a mis en avant les présentations individuelles de petits groupes de partenaires sur leur travail en cours et son adaptation face à la pandémie de Covid-19 et ses conséquences. La discussion a ensuite été développée sur les questions de perception de l’intégration, les pratiques d’intégration et ses défis, les besoins spécifiques de chaque ville, les pratiques d’intégration méconnues et l’efficacité des municipalités, ONG et gouvernements pour soutenir ce type d’action. En outre, les conséquences de la pandémie ont été discutées et analysées en profondeur dans une tentative de trouver des tendances et des solutions communes à travers les différents territoires.

En détail, le premier jour a été consacré à la participation des représentants de Solidaridad Sin Fronteras, de la municipalité d’Ioannina, de la municipalité d’Oberhausen et de la région métropolitaine de Gdansk. Durant le deuxième jour, le groupe de réflexion a accueilli des représentants de JRS Хорватия, de la municipalité de Lisbonne, de la municipalité de Brescia, d’ADL-Z et de Symbiosis. Le dernier jour a clôt les travaux avec des intervenants de la région de Sardaigne, de Cooperativa Studio e Progetto 2, de KITEV, de la ville de Sisak et de JRS Portugal.

Tous les partenaires EPIC ont activement pris part aux échanges, réunissant autour de la table de expériences similaires bien que différentes et partageant de nouvelles idées créatives qui ont rendu la conversation stimulante et constructive ! Que se passera-t-il ensuite ? Alors que les enquêtes menées par chaque partenaire EPIC touchaient à leur fin, le consortium se tient prêt à se retrouver en Espagne en octobre 2020 pour identifier les priorités qui en résultent!

Pendant ce temps, la newsletter EPIC sera bientôt publiée! Pour rester à jour avec toutes les actualités, inscrivez-vous et recevez toutes les informations à propos des enquêtes du projet ; des entretiens et des groupes de réflexion sur l’intégration des migrants ; des activités de renforcement des capacités pour les collectivités territoriales et les ONG ; des 8 projets pilotes ; des recommandations politiques ; des campagnes de communications locales et des évènements locaux et internationaux.

A grant by the Western Balkans Fund for the BNLD CulTours project!

In May 2020, the Balkan Network for Local Democracy (BNLD) was proudly awarded a grant by the prestigious Западно-Балканский фонд (WBF) for the implementation of the CulTours: Western Balkan Cultural Tours project, starting from the month of June.

CulTours is a 12-month project that involves 5 countries from the Western Balkans (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia and North Macedonia) with the aim to promote regional cooperation in the field of culture and sustainable growth. It is a follow-up of the Monumental 9 project, currently implemented by the same project partners, and proposes touristic routes of 9 cultural heritage sites from World War 2 in the Western Balkans.

Its activities will include research and work with local stakeholders; the development of a tool for the promotion of cultural heritage; a series of webinars for the exchange of ideas on tourism and local economic development; and one of its planned outcomes is the creation of a phone app that showcases touristic routes linking 9 cultural heritage sites in the Western Balkans.

The Western Balkan countries have common cultural heritage from World War 2 and the post-war period that is highly interesting from architectural, cultural and ideological points of view“, stated Ivana Petrovska, Director of the Balkan Network for Local Democracy. “Making a link between these sites and providing a shared touristic offer is going to be crucially beneficial for the local communities in all involved countries».

The award of a grant by the WBF is of great encouragement to the CulTours project, as well as a great honour. The BNLD will work hard to achieve the maximum benefit for all its target communities!
