EU-funded project announces winners of best environmental journalism in Kosovo


On 7 July the Europeanisation of Kosovo’s Environmental Agenda project, funded by the EU, organised an awards ceremony to recognise the three best journalistic stories dealing with environmental issues in Kosovo over the previous year.


The first prize, of €1,000 euros, was awarded to Valjeta Kosumi and Visar Krasniqi, two journalists from Radio Television of Kosovo who produced a five-part documentary series titled Our Home, which addresses issues like global warming, air pollution, river pollution, deforestation and waste management. The second prize, of €800, was awarded to Besnik Boletini and Qëndrim Bunjaku from the Çohu NGO for their in-depth investigation into air pollution, titled Air – A Mortal Threat. The third prize, of €500 euros, was awarded to Sanie Jusufi from KOHA for her three-part story, Abuse of Water, which examines Kosovo’s water capacity, highlighting the lack of clean water and the severe problems with river pollution.


The awards were presented by the European Union Special Representative for Kosovo, Mr. Tomáš Szunyog.  The award ceremony was organised as part of the Green Energy Days 2021 initiative.
