Europe is Here 2.0: EU Delegation to Albania launches new campaign

Albania

The Delegation of the European Union to Albania launched a new communication campaign on EU support to Albania. Building on last year’s Europe Is Here campaign, this new wave will inform citizens about the EU’s financial assistance to Albania, especially in key sectors such as education, health, innovation, agriculture and culture.   

 

Dedicated to the EU’s contribution to the education sector in Albania, the launch event of the Europe Is Here 2.0 campaign took place at the Polytechnic University of Tirana, UPT, in the presence of EU Ambassador Luigi Soreca.

 

In his remarks, Ambassador Soreca said: “Investing in young people is key to taking Albania forward on its EU path. This year we chose to start our ‘Europe Is Here’ awareness-raising campaign with education because of the importance the EU attaches to this key sector and the substantial funding it provides to Albania through programmes for education and youth. “’Europe Is Here’ because we want to continue our conversations with you on how the EU is helping Albania to get closer to the European Union, improving the life of Albanians every day while providing wide opportunities to Albanian youth: to be engaged, to be connected, to be empowered.” 

 

In addition to the well-knownErasmus+ exchange programme, the European Union has invested over €100 million in education in Albania over the last ten years, mostly in vocational education and training and inclusive education as well as the renovation and reconstruction of educational facilities.
