Tirana / Albania
Albanian Young Greens organized a series of activities on 14th November with the following theme: “Climate is changing, our future is being destroyed”.
“For us as young people, the problem of climate change must be resolved as soon as possible as it seriously threatens our lives and the future. This is our task, our challenge, for which time is calling us. Although we are living in an unusual situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can think ahead to tackle the climate crisis, making the right choices to move on the right path towards progress and green policy development.
The AYG Assembly was held in the spirit of a greater commitment of young people to the challenge of climate change. During the Assembly a variety of sessions took place, filled with constructive debates about environmental, social, green policies, schooling and youth employment.
The involvement of young people in politics was stressed out, the leadership of the organization and the space they should have in the leading and decision-making structures of the Green Party.
The presence of young people from all branches of the Youth Forum, local councilors, as well as representatives of the Albanian Greens, created a vivid space for fruitful debate by sharing experiences with young people and exchanging ideas for strengthening and development of the green youth movement in Albania.
The General Assembly adopted a number of important political documents and resolutions.
“Let us all act together now to protect the environment and the climate”: this resolution calls for the massive action of the climate movement as a necessity to raise awareness of decision-makers to act quickly.
The General Assembly also elected new leadership. The two co-chair persons are Mrs. Ambra Durro and Mr. Brahim Demi.
Mr. Brahim Demi is our councilor in the local parliament. He also represents the green voice in the municipal council of the city of Lezha.
The green weekend was finalised with the Climate protest organized by members of the AYG.
The message of this protest was as following: The movement known as “Fridays for Future” must be spread across the country as a call for urgent action against climate change”.
