ALDA – The European Association for Local Democracy is an organisation dedicated to the promotion of good governance and citizen participation at the local level. ALDA was established in 1999 at the initiative of the Council of Europe to coordinate and support a network of Local Democracy Agencies promoting good governance and local self-government in the Neighbourhood areas.
ALDA has become a key stakeholder in the field of local democracy, good governance, active citizenship, and cooperation between local authorities and civil society. In the framework of promoting good governance and citizen participation at the local level, ALDA focuses on various themes, such as European integration, decentralisation, civic initiatives and volunteering, environment, human rights and sustainable economic development. ALDA is a membership-based organisation gathering more than 300 members (including local authorities, associations of local authorities and civil society organisations) coming from more than 40 countries.
ALDA as LIME associated is the coordinator of the communication actions and it particularly contributes to the project by facilitating awareness raising processes on the integration of migrants in the labour market and by disseminating and effectively transferring the project’s results amongst key stakeholders.
