The project of membership in the European Union (EU) is the only successful way for solid sustainable and democratic development in Albania.
Albanian youth, which makes up half of the country's population, is the most pro-European segment of our society. However, despite pro-European sentiments, the phenomenon of young people leaving the country and 'brain drain' has become a real concern for the country's future.
More than ever it is important to bring Europe to young people and help them understand that they are already part of it. Albanian youth should be made aware that Europe is at home.
Tirana, being the capital of Albania and the city with the largest number of young people nationally, is a driving force for the whole country and as such has a key role in empowering its youth towards better strategies and policymaking.
These are the reasons why the focus of our programme is to encourage a sense of belonging in the EU family by implementing diverse project ideas and activities such as the 'European Parliament Model', exchange activities with colleagues and peers from Europe and the Western Balkans, as well as cultural and artistic projects promoting the European values.
The purpose of these activities is to raise awareness of the common European identity by promoting democratic values and the importance of working together for the future of the European family.
