Ta' Xbiex Local Council and Rocca di Santo Stefano Town Twinning

A town twinning project has been developed between Ta' Xbiex Local Council and Comune di Rocca Santo Stefano (Rome), to support cooperation between two countries for a cross-section of citizens at local and Union level. This was reached by getting together 47 participants from Italy and 30 participants from Malta, to work together on a set of priorities outlined through BEACONS.

Participants have debated:

  • (1) Issues of governance at a local level and EU level
  • (2) Social migration and integration
  • (3) New methods to promote civic participation targeting Youths
  • (4) Policy development processes focusing on societal engagement and volunteering at local and union level especially, through a number of focused workshops dealing with specific themes, setup on a duration of 4 days.
The official signing of twinning was held on Sunday 19th July in Ta' Xbiex Malta and on Saturday 9th August in Rocca Santo Stefano, in the Province of Rome.
