The European Union, via various Community institutions, is making significant efforts to promote the participation of local authorities in the European construct. The constant increase of responsibilities has led to citizens being more and more affected by the policies developed, consequently impacting on the local community.
In such a context, the Almería Provincial Council becomes a suitable vehicle for the specialised dissemination of information from the EU; information which may be of interest to the province’s town councils and citizens. We are confident that exposing local communities to the dynamic generated by the institutions and European programmes promotes our social and economic development.
The European Initiatives Unit from the Department for Development organises European training activities, , news bulletins and projectswhich are of interest to the province; all of this is developed within the Principle of Subsidiarity framework established in the European methodological dynamics.
The Europe Direct Network and Andalusian Network of European Information, to which the Almería Provincial Council belongs, support the objectives of the European Initiatives Unit by means of developing work in conjunction with engineers and organisations responsible for promoting an active European citizenship. They also promote joint actions encouraging the involvement of the local community in the European construct.
