Challenge

There is currently an environmental dramatic situation in Albania. Trash disposal and medical waste in public spaces, around city centres, rural areas, along rivers and coastline are affecting the communities in every city in Albania. In addition the air pollution and deforestation are having a direct negative impact in public health, better living and economic growth in tourism sector.

Solution

Green City Hackathon will educate, train and empower the first generation of Green Leaders as Ambassadors of the Environment. In addition it will draft and develop the first Green City Strategy to include concrete actions and their implementation. It will foster partnership between young generations to address through new approach, innovative ideas and solutions about social inclusiveness and environmental education.

Long-Term Impact

Create and Empower 1000 Green Leaders to work with all stakeholders, communities and especially youngsters to shape the path towards raising awareness activities, advocacy and real actions. The project will serve as a Green Ideas Incubator, evolving through time as young generations grow, become more responsible and active, towards social impact and the idea of "Life Long Engagement" actors. This is a Step-by-Step project, resulting in a Long Term Strategy towards the Concept of Green Cities.
