The project closing event

Lattanzio KIBS joined Un Women Albania at the closing event of the "Youth 4 Inclusion, Equality & Trust" initiative in Tirana. The meeting aimed to disseminate the main results of the research and implementable recommendations on gender equality and social cohesion.

Several stakeholders were invited to participate, starting with young people, who facilitated dialogue around the most significant issues, encouraging collaboration and knowledge sharing, and raising awareness on the importance of promoting gender equality and social cohesion.

Participants included the State Ministry of Youth and Children from Albania, the Gender Equality Agency from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Ministry of Human Rights, Minorities and Social Dialogue and the Ministry of Youth and Tourism from Serbia, the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports from Kosovo*, and the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy from North Macedonia.
