European youth card

European youth card

Although the war in Europe, caused by Putin's aggression and the tragedy of the Ukrainian martyred and heroic people have put everything developmental on our continent in the background, our capital, in these first 90 days of being the European youth capital, seems to is deserving of this setting. In the first place, for the youth of the whole country, not only of Tirana. Thanks to the Student Card that the municipality of Tirana distributes to students everywhere in Albania and agreements with businesses, young people benefit from services at reduced prices to 2 thousand enterprises. Starting from canteens, electronic devices, school equipment, etc., Albanian students today receive goods and services with 5, 10, 15 or 20 percent discount. 75 percent of Tirana students have this card. With the European Youth Charter that the municipality of Tirana has started to distribute from yesterday, the youth activity, services and benefits are going beyond the borders of Albania. This card is a tool that empowers young people, offering discounts in 36 European countries, in the sectors of culture, accommodation, travel, entertainment, training and studies, health sector, banking sector, in tourism, telecommunications and internet, sports and shopping. In total, there are about 7 million new cardholders and over 60,000 businesses offering discounts in Europe. While in Tirana, thanks to the young people who work in the municipality of the capital and with it, two thousand Student Card services are offering discounts for holders of the European Youth Card, during 2022. The second function of the European Youth Card is to obtain free information, via its unique code (a password and a unique username). This information applies to young people for scholarships in Europe, for student movements, training programs, exchanges, workshops, international competitions, volunteer work and many other activities anywhere on the continent. Mayor Veliaj, during the issuance of the Youth Charter in the capital, stressed yesterday that the distribution of the European Charter for young people will continue in other cities of Albania. With it, the young Albanian will really feel like a citizen of Europe. The Municipality of Tirana has enabled this flow of updated information thanks to the memberships it has made for the European Youth Charter that it distributes, in structures such as the European Youth Information and Conculting Agency in Luxembourg, as the European Youth Card Association in Brussels and as the European Solidarity Corps Program. Representatives of the European Youth Charter today recognize the partnership with Tirana as extremely challenging and say that 'This miracle that the municipality and the youth in Tirana did in such a short time, collecting so many services, we will have to take it to another level' . Tirana, after the first 90 days of being the European Capital of Youth, comes with over 300 activities developed in schools, gymnasiums, universities, groups and youth centers, etc. On February 28, 2022, on the occasion of the election of Tirana as the European Capital of Youth for this year, the Regional Minister of Economy of Puglia came to Tirana, assistant Aleksandër Deli Noçi and signed an agreement with the mayor of Tirana for the opening of youth business incubators in Tirana. But not only that. The agreement will be the first brick on a long and fruitful wall of cooperation. From April to June 2022, comes a program with a space dedicated to artistic craftsmanship, with the installation of artistic lights in Tirana, Skanderbeg Square and "Italy" Square, squares that will become the scenarios of animation and street entertainment. In June, space will be set up for contemporary dance, with Flight Lessons by internationally renowned Italian master Elisa Barruchieri, which will hold a high-level training seminar aimed at young Albanian dancers. Part of the initiatives promoted by the program "Puglia-Albania, Together for the Future ”will be organized as part of the Italian Week in the World, organized by the Italian Embassy from 1 to 7 June 2022 in Tirana. Music will be the protagonist with the launch of the project "FAME", funded by the Interreg Program Italy-Albania-Montenegro, which has among the partners the Municipality of Tirana and the Public Theater Puljez. The project aims to increase the skills of young Albanian musicians, with the involvement of international artists and the use of digital languages ??and technologies. There will be performances by musical groups and an urban concert with the electronic troupe Puglia Inude, as producer and dj GO DUGONG, with the Albanian group "Rruga Tirana", as well as the Albanian rapper Killua. On the calendar is a meeting dedicated to the publication and contemporary youth literature, through the creation of an anthology and the creation of events involving young Albanian writers, translated into Italian, and young Albanian writers writing directly in Italian. Despite the extraordinary difficulties of the war in Europe and the worldwide problems with the tsunami of prices of basic products such as food, fuel and electricity, Tirana has returned convincingly with its services and activities for young people in the European Youth Capital 2022.
