The European membership project is the only viable path for a sustainable, social, prosperous and democratic Albania in the EU. As young people are the most pro-European generation, they need to be an integral part of this big project!
Albanian youth, which make half of the country’s population, are in particular the most pro-European segment of our society. Despite these positive sentiments, the young brain drain phenomenon has become a real concern for the future of the country. More than ever it is important to bring Europe closer to young people and help them understand that they are already a part of it. Youth should realize that Europe is at home.
Being the capital of Albania and having the largest number of young people, Tirana becomes a lighthouse city for the whole country, with a leading role in the empowerment of its youth towards strategy and policy making. That is why our program’s focus is in encouraging the sense of belonging to the EU family by implementing activities such as the ‘Model European Parliament’, exchange activities with peers from Europe and Western Balkans, cultural and artistic project that promote European values, and many more. The aim of these activities is to enhance the common European identity while promoting its democratic values and increasing awareness on the importance of working together for the future of the European family.
