Mr Aldo Xhani, coordinator of the Citizenship programme, represented ALDA at the plenary meeting of Civil Society Europe (CSE), held on 27th April in Brussels. The event gathered together European networks of associations and NGOs that share a common vision for Europe, and will work towards regenerating the European project around the shared values of equality, solidarity, inclusiveness and democracy.

As many as 34 European networks confirmed their participation in the newly established platform. The Brussels event was, in particular, an opportunity to further build the organizational structure of CSE and elect its Steering Committee’s representatives. Two main proposals of action were put forward for debates: the creation of a working group on civic space and fundamental rights and a joint initiative between CSE and the European Year for Development Alliance (EYD2015).

As one of the main stakeholders in the European Year of Citizens Alliance 2013, ALDA confirmed its strong support and commitment to the development of the platform by bringing in its 15 year expertise in the field of active citizenship and good governance at local level. ALDA being a member of the European Year for Development Alliance, it will also contribute to facilitate joint actions between the two initiatives.
