  • Young people address candidates for local elections for #Clean Air! 

    The Albanian local elections of 2023 will take place on 14 May 2023 in the entire country including 61 municipalities. Diverse platforms and priorities are being introduced by different candidates running for mayor or municipal council. Nonetheless, air quality, climate change and the environment are at the cornerstone of healthy and liveable cities and these issues should be the priority of each candidate. This is particularly critical for adolescents and children, which represent a vulnerable group against pollution[i]. Children and adolescents cannot protect themselves from air pollution, or vote for or influence relevant policies; only adults can do it for them, and it is urgent[ii].  In the margins of local elections, youngsters of the #Youth4CleanAir network in Albania address all candidates running for Mayor or municipal council and urge for actionable political programs, plans and accurate decision-making to ensure #CleanAir and tackle climate consequences affecting youth and children's health!  For this purpose, #Youth4CleanAir youngsters convey key messages and demands from their #YouthManifesto4AirQuality&ClimateChange[iii] document to the candidates, emphasizing the urgent need for air quality in our lives and addressing certain key proposals in their political programs for the local sustainable development and democracy   Young people demand from local candidates to prioritize air quality in their municipalities by integrating and undertaking concrete measures and actions to ensure: Stronger and bold policies to ensure easy-accessed green public transport, within the city and intercity, frequent and financially      affordable to all. Thus, reducing the use of personal cars;  Education, information and awareness-raising campaigns for the sustainable management and conservation of natural resources, as the sole means to improve air quality and resilience against climate change. Empowering citizens and all relevant stakeholders to undertake proactive actions in support of air quality and climate resilience;  Increasing forest areas with native plants and extending forest and green areas within cities urban;  Building and enhancing the network of bike lanes within cities  As underscored in the recent policy brief of the UN Secretary-General on youth's role in decision-making, youth are key to identifying new solutions that will secure the breakthroughs that our world urgently needs. Likewise, the #Youth4CleanAir network firmly believes that young people should be empowered and entrusted as equal stakeholders and partners in the decision-making and implementation of initiatives intended to mitigate air pollution and combat climate change.  [i] Children are particularly vulnerable to air pollution, from when they are in the womb to when they reach adulthood.  [ii] https://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/air-pollution-and-childrens-health [iii] The Youth Manifesto is an advocacy document produced by youth from the municipalities of Tirana, Pogradec, Shkoder, Elbasan and Berat during the first implementation please of the project #Youth4AirQuality which included 254 youth in capacity building, awareness and advocacy events during last year. This document has been presented by youth to the Deputy Minister of Tourism and Environment in February 2023 and youth will continue to build their actions on this strategic document to raise their voice for issues related to air quality in Albania.

Me anë të këtyre paneleve me fuqi 28kWp është tashmë e mundur reduktimi me 60% i faturës së energjisë elektrike për Bashkinë dhe deri në 90% për Qendrën Shëndetësore duke bërë një hap para drejt mbrojtjes së mjedisit dhe përdorimit në mënyrë eficente të burimeve energjetike. Përveç kësaj, ndriçimi rrugor është më efiçent pasi është realizuar zëvendësimi i ndriçuesve të zakonshëm me 230 ndriçues LED 90W. Ndriçimi rrugor është përmirësuar ndjeshëm dhe përveç jetëgjatësisë së ndriçuesve, Bashkia do të shpenzojë më pak. Kjo është vërtetuar gjatë procesit të monitorimit, pasi Bashkia ka kursyer deri në 37% të buxhetit të dedikuar për ndriçimin rrugor. Në takimin që u zhvillua, Kryetari i Bashkisë Z. Liman Morina u shpreh “Projekte dhe investime të tilla i shtojnë vlerë dhe zhvillojnë qytetin e Hasit, duke kursyer më shumë e duke gjetur mënyra efektive drejt ekonomisë së gjelbër” Z Ilmi Lisha, Përgjegjës sektori të monitorimit të kompetencave vendore dhe funksioneve të deleguara, prefektura Qarku Kukës u shpreh se “Investime kaq të rëndësishme për zonën mundëson zhvillimin dhe rrit vëmendjen që duhet të marrin trojet tona”.Znj. Ermelinda Mahmutaj, Drejtore e qendrës Mjedisore EDEN theksoi rëndësinë e bashkëpunimit me institucione vendore dhe angazhimit të vazhdueshëm pë të qenë më afër standardeve europiane të zhvillimit.Në takim u diskutua gjithashtu për vlerën e këtij projekti, për zonën dhe për investime të tjera që do të hapin rrugë drejt zhvillimit dhe mbrojtjes së mjedisit. Në fund takimi u përmbyll me ceremoninë e prerjes së shiritit të investimit nga Kryetari i Bashkisë dhe nga Drejtoresha e Qendrës Mjedisore EDEN. Me një dëshirë të madhe për ta kthyer politikbërjen në një mjet për të mbrojtur mjedisin, dhe biodiversitetin, Bashkia Has u angazhua për ta realizuar me sukses këtë projekt 3 vjeçar, duke dhënë kështu një shembull mjaft pozitiv për iniciativat që duhen ndërmarrë për ta integruar konceptin e ekonomisë e gjelbër me buxhetin.Arritja e bashkëpunimit dhe nxitja për më shumë veprime dhe ndërhyrje proaktive duhet të përkrahet nga më shumë bashki, për të shkuar drejt zhvillimit bashkarisht dhe për të sjell inovacionin në shërbim të natyrës dhe trojeve tona.Ceremonia e inagurimit, u zhvillua në kuadër të projektit ndërkufitar të financuar nga Bashkimi Evropian - IPA II "KAPËRCIM I GJELBËR– Drejt ekonomisë së gjelbër vendore përmes investimeve inteligjente".
