“The project on consolidating local democracy in Armenia and strengthening local councillors’ leadership, implemented under the Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia, has made a critical impact in this country’s local communities,” stressed Congress Vice-President Liisa Ansala at the project’s final conference in Yerevan on 5 December. She welcomed the workshops and seminars that reached almost 400 councillors and young local leaders over the past three years, as well as step-by-step action to engage local residents in decision making and community building in the municipalities of Akhtala, Artik, Urtsadzor and Vardenik. “The space of ‘learning by doing’ created by this project, the good practices of community meetings and peer-to-peer exchanges will live on, spread and repeated in other communities, thus advancing further participatory democracy,” she said.
