Environmental Campaign in Albania

Featured: Tirana, "Loesje slogans for climate change in Albania" campaign.

Environmental Center Eden, supported by The Embassy of the Netherlands in Albania invited Loesje International to travel to Tirana to lead creative writing workshops with the focus on European Environmental issues. Loesje team booked the tickets and we were really looking forward to discover Albania, and then COVID-19 pandemic started. Nevertheless, we decided to make it happen online!

The 1st online workshop was greeted by the Ambassador of Netherlands in Albania, Ms. Guusje Korthals Altes, who quoted several Loesje slogans and expressed her enthusiasm about the collaboration between Loesje International and Environmental center EDEN - dedicated to the task of creating a number of powerful messages designed to raise people's awareness on the Climate Change problem. Following, a welcoming presentation was given by the Executive Director of EDEN Center, Ms. Ermelinda Mahmutaj, who emphasized the importance of exchanging experiences among European countries on how to address urgent topics like climate change.

Loesje International gave five online workshops for Albania and many texts made it into Loesje posters. You can see the all the posters for the campaign here.

Although the workshops were held online due to COVID-19 situation, diverse key stakeholders became part of the workshops, including - Albanian climate and environmental experts, representatives of national and local environmental NGOs in Albania, representatives of public administration, academics, nature guides, etc.

The participants joined the workshops from different cities of Albania, such as Tirana, Kurbin, Belsh, Shkodër, Fier, Berat, etc. The participants believed the workshop experience turned out to be unique and very interesting as they felt quite involved in it and enjoyed the process of creating slogans following their own fantasy and inspiration. By the end of each workshop, everyone expressed great curiosity in what would become of their collective efforts to produce moving slogans out of their own imagination.

The posters created during the workshops were used for a campaign "Loesje slogans for climate change in Albania" to make people in Albania more aware of the dangers of climate change. Please find below some inspiring pictures from the campaign.

On the move for the climate!
