ACTIVITIES

Preparation Phase
A preparation phase lasting two months is foreseen at the beginning of the project.
This phase mainly aims at:

  • defining a common visibility and communication strategy
  • defining project activities in details (e.g. locations and venues of the events, detailed programmes and agendas, etc.)
  • elaborating the set of indicators for monitoring and evaluation activities

The preparation phase will employ ICT tools to favor an efficient communication and cooperation among partners.

 
Steering Committee Meetings
The coordination of the programme will be followed by a steering committee.
The steering committee will have the responsibilities to manage the whole process and will be the way through which the co-decision and the cooperation among partners in the different steps of the project will be granted.
The steering committee will be composed of 14 members, including the staff of the leading and coordinating organization.

Launching Seminar
The launching seminar is one of the milestones of the present proposal. Considering the wide coverage and "dimension" of the project (involving 11 partners in 7 different EU Member States), the initial seminar represent the best "tool" to present the aims of the project, as well as its activities and expected results, to a large number of European stakeholders.
The launching seminar will be promoted, organized and implemented by the Association of Local Democracy Agencies, in strict cooperation with all the project partners and with other relevant NSAs and LAs.
The seminar is manly addressed to LAs and NSAs; representatives of each partner and associate will participate in the seminar. European Institutions' representatives will also be invited to attend the launching event. Expected number of participants: 80/100.

 
Thematic Workshops
The European Commission encourages the most wide-ranging participation of all segments of society to ensure ownership of the development strategies and, in this perspective, the role of LAs and NSAs is recognised as a fundamental principle. In order to achieve this objective, it is fundamental to improve LAs and NSAs understanding, skills and capacities to play a relevant role in the field of development. The thematic workshops aim at providing to a large number of European stakeholders the opportunity to acquire new knowledge, as well as to profit of the exchange, on four specific and vivid topics in the field of development.

Trainings “Understanding of Opportunities for Decentralised Cooperation"
This training proposal aims 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 capacity for dialogue to make their members more effective participants in the development issues.
In particular, the trainings aim at strengthening the institutional capacities of such agents and their capacity for action and at developing human and technical resources.

Study Visit in Brussels
One of the objectives of the present proposal is to increase the number of multi-actor partnerships and to consolidate exchanges between different types of Non-State Actors and Local Authorities networks, within their organization and also with Community Institutions. In order to achieve this important objective, the present proposal includes a 3-days study visit in Brussels. Considering the latest guidelines in terms of development cooperation, which highlight the need to encourage a greater involvement of local councils and non-governmental organizations, a direct interaction between Community Institutions, NSA and LA represent a necessary step towards this direction.

The publication represents an important outcome of the project and will be the main "tool" through which the promotion of the project, the dissemination of its results and the respective follow-up are favored and granted The publication, realised at the European level by all the partners and with the direct involvement of the most relevant stakeholders, will mainly aim at:

  • increasing the visibility of the action;
  • raising awareness about the role of LAs and NSAs networks in the field of development:;
  • disseminating information about EU development policies;
  • promoting the method of "decentralized cooperation" as a tool to foster the role of LAs and NSAs in the field of development;
  • presenting experiences and best practices.

Website
The present proposal will consider the web as an important tool to promote the project and to disseminate its results.
The Web site of the project, probably hosted in the domain of the Association of Local Democracy Agencies, will serve both as an internal and external communication "tool" and as a mean to collect feedbacks from the different stakeholders involved in the project.
Final publication and all the other outcomes of the projects will be published in the website (multiplying its effects).
