    Communication activities

    PLATFORMA engages in a dynamic social media strategy by communicating on thematic issues on which decentralised cooperation is active (climate, local governance, health, access to water and sanitation, education, gender equality, local services, local economic development, migration, etc.).
    Core campaigns include (i) the European Days of Local Solidarity (EDLS) - annual campaign, (ii) 2030 Agenda - Localisation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

    Twitter is used as the main social media (https://twitter.com/Platforma4Dev/), as well as Youtube for videos (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6WYm5PB0xn0SxSUGljXz0Q), and Linkedin (https://www.linkedin.com/company/platforma4dev/)

    Other activities

    INTERNAL GOVERNANCE

    PLATFORMA governance is organised with a Political Council and a Steering Committee. The Political Council is composed of local elected representatives of PLATFORMA partners. They hold a mandate of political representative of PLATFORMA. The Steering Committee is composed of executive representatives of PLATFORMA partners. They ensure the smooth running of PLATFORMA and support the adoption of strategic decisions of the Political Council. The Political Council meets once a year and the Steering Committee meets twice a year. During these meeting exchanges and debates with representatives of European or international institutions are organised.

    THEMATIC GROUPS

    Further to its policy implementation, public relations and communication activities, PLATFORMA coordinates four clustered thematic groups composed of its partners representatives. The clusters gather the feedback of PLATFORMA partners on the Secretariat’s policy work:
    • National Focal Points;
    • 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals;
    • EU Neighbourhood East;
    • EU Neighbourhood South;
    • Development Education and Awareness-Raising
