Grassroots democracy discussed between Ukrainian young local leaders and representatives of Strasbourg Eurometropole and Alsace region

The Congress is organising a study visit with the aim to empower young local leaders to foster grassroots democracy in Ukraine, in Strasbourg, from 16 to 21 November 2015. This study visit aims to provide participants with insight on inter-municipal and transfrontier cooperation and enable them to identify best practices of local and regional democracy. In particular, they will get acquainted with different modalities and structures of co-operation and discover the opportunities and challenges regarding policy-making, through interactive exchanges with local elected representatives. In this regard, the participants will meet representatives from the Eurometropole (Strasbourg), Alsace Region (France), Eurodistrict, the Agency for Economic Development of the Lower-Rhine (ADIRA), as well as to take part in the fourth World Forum for Democracy (Strasbourg, 18 - 20 November 2015).
