Project title: Enhancing environmental debate and awareness in the Albanian society
Duration: November 2009 – ongoing
Objectives: The project aims at encouraging debate in the Albanian society on environmental issues by raising awareness and creating a public online space for interested parties to discuss environmental problems in Albania and cooperate in helping to solve them. For that purpose, the IEP has opened an environmental forum (Forumi mjedisor i IPM), the first online space for discussions specifically on environmental topics among Albanian-speaking people. The forum is in Albanian, with a small section for English-speakers as well. The forum aims at becoming the main medium where Albanian environmentalists and everyone interested can discuss and voice their opinion on environmental issues. Also, it serves as a tool of networking and cooperation between Albanian environmentalists. The forum is available at www.iep-al.org/forum
Also, the project aims to raise awareness in the Albanian society about various environmental problems in Albania, such as noise pollution, garbage, climate change, environmental protection etc.
Activities: Creation of an Albanian language environmental forum and publishing a series of articles on environmental problems in Albania and possible solutions to these
