“Active citizens are made, not born”. Hence the urge to engage and understand mechanisms and gears regulating the European internal system.
To this end, on July 25th and 26th, 2018 a 2-day training event was held in Mèrida, Spain, titled “How decisions are taken in the European Union”. The conference was organized within the framework of the project CivAct, in collaboration with “Europe with Citizens” and AEXCID – “Agency of Extremadura for International Cooperation and Development”, as well as other partners such as the Youth Institute of Extremadura and the European and the Ibero-American Academic Foundation of Yuste.
CivAct is a project aiming at engaging citizens of different nationalities living in the European Union to come together and start a constructive discussion upon themes like diversity, acceptance and respect.

ALDA was proudly part of this important event through the voice of our project manager, Mr. Marco Boaria, who repeatedly took the stage during the second day of the meeting. His lecture, titled “How to take part to European decisions-making system”, underlined the importance of citizens’ participation at the local level. Moreover, citizens’ participation is strictly bound to knowledge, which is the basis of both change and exchange.

«European citizens must know how the European Union affects their lives, they have to feel part of the European project”, stated Marco Boaria.
