Reinventing Europe

THROUGH INCLUSIVE LOCAL INITIATIVE

This website was created to support the initiatives, and build a virtual network, of practitioners, NGOs, grassroots organisations and local authorities working with vulnerable local communities in Europe and neighboring regions.

The goal is to share local experience and practical know-how, based on existing local initiatives. This is done by presenting examples of successful projects and guidelines that focus on developing or improving processes and replicable models of social and economic inclusion through community-led local development.

These projects cover areas such as social economic development, inclusive education, improved access to services, income opportunities, housing and cultural activities. All are to create the necessary conditions for local communities to make their home cities, towns or villages places where all inhabitants have equal rights and equal access to services and opportunities.

This website also responds to the need to support networking for inclusive development, which is still lacking at both EU and local level, especially in the new EU Member States, pre-accession and neighboring countries.

The website, and the related virtual network, have been developed and are maintained by AEIDL, the European Association for Information on Local Development. AEIDL has a longstanding experience in, and commitment to, supporting local initiative and cultural diversity in Europe.

AEIDL considers this diversity and local inventiveness as a strength and an essential ingredient in building an inclusive and forward-looking Europe.
