It is a great pleasure and an honour to present this first
Newsletter during my Presidency. It is our ambition to inform members
of our National Associations about the activities of our European
association and about the hot items on European level.
We invite everybody to subscribe this Newsletter. At least three
times a year we want to send you this bulletin with the idea of
increasing its frequency to six a year or even more.
It is UDITE’s ambition to organise several initiatives where
knowledge and experience can be shared about local government:
management, leadership, digitalisation, HR, risk management, good
governance, service delivery, relationship management – politics, and
much more. Are there other items that you would like to explore and discuss?
UDITE wants to deliver this this in close cooperation with all our
national association and partners. One of our strategic partners,
Primo Europe, a sister organisation to UDITE, was created to focus on
the topic of risk management as a part of good governance.
VEOLIA, our principle business partner has significant experience in
the field of circular economy, resilience, air quality, waste
management, and smart cities etc. They have built up experience with
projects all over Europe which can be of an inspiration for local managers.
Our partnership at Green Week 2019 is an important one where the
theme this year is the good implementation of EU environment
legislation on which local government plays a vital role in
implementation and ensuring compliance. The point we are making on our
UDITE VEOLIA stand this year, where we are one of only 15 exclusive
displays this year (from 13th to 17th May in Brussels), that we can
only do this effectively with the right capacity, skills and resources
that need to accompany policy implementation. (Read more - https://www.eugreenweek.eu ).
This newsletter is also a call for cooperation and commitment. Thanks
to the input of the associations and their individual members, the
aims and objectives of sharing experience and knowledge can be realised.
Take a look at the 2019 event calendar.
