European Centre, in collaboration with Centre for European Development and Integration, with the financial support of Canada Fund for Local Initiatives, is implementing the project “It’s on us! – Empowering women in the social, economic and political life through innovation”.
This project is being implemented in 6 municipalities: Shkodër, Malësi e Madhe, Lushnjë, Elbasan, Pogradec dhe Korçë.
Within this framework, during this week the Centers have organized and delivered trainings with staff of Municipalities, Regional Labor Offices and other local institutions in Pogradec and Korça. In addition, the training of Elbasan was delivered online due to health reasons caused by Covid-19. During the trainings, topics such as fundamental constitutional rights, participation in the decision-making process, national and international legal and political framework regarding gender equality and access of women and girls in the labor market, have been discussed.
Fruitful discussions took place during the trainings, regarding the concrete work of local institutions, within the framework of empowering women and girls of the community, as well as possible politics for the further amelioration of the situation.
