30 representatives of the WTD Working Together for Development project, partners, coming from more than 10 different countries attended a training session organised by ALDA in the framework of the project.
The training session was held in Brussels on 15 and 18 October.

The training aimed at providing to European local authorities associations and civil society networks new knowledge and capacities to play an important role as decentralised cooperation agents, promoting also their capacities to make their members more effective participants in the development issues.
Using an experiential learning concept methodology, the training session contributed to reinforce the understanding of decentralised cooperation of the participants and to develop a dissemination instrument to promote decentralised cooperation among participants’ partners and members organisations.
With the help of key experts, participants had the possibility of getting a general overview of the international and European framework regarding decentralised cooperation as well as of key case studies on the topic.
Last but not least, participants had the possibility to attend in the framework of the training the European Development Days 2012 to networking and strengthen contacts with more experienced organisation working on the topic.
