On date May 12th, 2023, the Institute of Romani Culture in Albania (IRCA) organized an advocation activity at the “Bajram Curri” school in Tirana. This activity is part of the international project “Enhancing Albanian and Italian Youth to Support Disadvantaged Communities to become Climate Change Resilient through Art and Culture” (REACT), which is financed by ALLIANZ FOUNDATION, Germany, and is implemented by Institute of Romani Culture in Albania (IRCA) in Albania and Associazione di Promozione Sociale Giallo Sassi in Italy. This activity is the first of a series of 10 lectures at schools and universities in Albania and in Italy.
During this activity was discussed the effects of the climate change in the communities in Albania and in the world.
The main goal of the raising awareness activities at schools is to empower and equip youth with the knowledge and skills necessary to assist vulnerable communities, such as the Roma minority in Albania and Miglionico in Italy, in mitigating the adverse impacts of climate change.
