From January 2015 we are in partnership with Association of Local Democracy Agencies (ALDA) in a project entitled LADDER.
Funded by EuropeAid, LADDER has 1 global objective and 4 specific ones. For the next 36 months, it will seek to enhance and increase the action of Local Authorities in EU DEAR policies, with special reference to the EU Neighboring area. To do so, the following specific objectives have been identified:
- strengthen the capacity of associations of local authorities (LAs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) to act in a sustainable way as drivers for development, fostering their role of multipliers within their countries, communities and network
- inform, raise awareness and engage citizens in global issues, global interdependency and development education
- develop & reinforce the cooperation between LAs and CSOs, to lead to winning synergies
- improve DEAR methods in non-formal education system, through the development of new and innovative methods and tools addressed to a wide range of stakeholders (including educators, civil servants, NGOs, youth leaders etc).
