In the meeting participated representatives from Orbis Center and Young Proffesional Network. Below you can find more information about the awarded small grants:
Qendra Orbis (Orbis Center) together with Fast News aims at “Advocating for better access of Albanian students towards e-services”. The main activities foreseen through this grant are an awareness raising campaign and a survey on the current e-services that are already available to this target group. Based on the survey findings they are going to create a list of recommendations and advocate in front of the National Agency of Information Society and the Municipality of Tirana for the creation of relevant e-services or improvement of the current ones.
Through the grant “Albanian Youth Fit for the digital age”, Young Professionals Network (YPN) in partnership with Politiko Center aims to mobilize young people to advocate for boosting the digital competencies thorough the future youth policies/strategies, as well as to develop at least four policy recommendations for the Albanian Youth Strategy 2022 – 2029.
