YEAs and US Youth Council Albania prepare initiative banning plastic bags

On 16 March, the second open discussion between the EU and US Ambassadors to Albania and the Young European Ambassadors and US Youth Council took place in Tirana. The parties discussed their cooperation since the first meeting held in June 2021, and possible future collaboration between the two youth networks.


The focus of the meeting was the EU Green Agenda for the Western Balkans and how young people can get involved in shaping the Green Agenda in a practical sense. In line with the ambitions of European Green Deal, the Green Agenda paves the way for a transformation towards climate-neutral and resilient, green and circular economies in the region.


Overall, the two Ambassadors encouraged them to engage, exchange ideas and participate in building a better and more secure future for their country, remembering also their place in the world and the difference they can make.


It was agreed that the YEAs and the US Youth Council would prepare a draft for a joint initiative on banning plastic bags in Albania. The next meeting between the networks will be to share the results.
