ALDA, the European Association of Local Democracy


ALDA, the European Association of Local Democracy is a non-profit organisation based in Strasbourg, France, which deals with the promotion of good local governance, citizen participation and sustainable development. Our members are local authorities, associations of local authorities and networks of NGOs, which share our goals and have developed into a network of more than 200 members from 30 countries in wider Europe. We work on topics of concern in the European Union and its Eastern and Southern Neighbourhood.


ALDA’s role was envisaged as one of a networking and communication partner. We are able to disseminate the materials among our 5000 contacts and partners and make a solid promotion for this new approach. In particular we took part in the OBAMA related material translation and adaptation for a French audience. Indeed, all material on the website is in English and in French and can be summarised and translated on request.
