Description:
The “Just Dance” project’s main intention was to make a video clip which would show that the youth of Kosovo want to continue living in peace and harmony with other ethnicities. This project was implemented by a multi-ethnic youth team from Pristina and Gracanica. The video included many ethnicities living in Kosovo: Albanians, Serbians, Roma, Ashkali, Bosnians, and Turks. The voiceover in the video clip is speaking in three languages: Albanian, English, and Serbian, and the spot was produced in the same three languages. Produced by the well-known company “Entermedia”, the video was posted on the website “YouTube”- we expect to have lots of viewers!
In addition, the video will be transmitted through national TV channels RTK, KTV, TV21, and KLAN Kosova and on the local TV stations in Peja,  Gracanica, and Mitrovica.

Team Members:

Description:
This project had several implementation phases. The first was a 4 day-long training on “Concepts of Peace, Prevention, and Negotiation of Conflicts” led
by professional trainer Professor Fisnik Kumnova that included 15 young people of Albanian and Serbian heritage. The atmosphere at the training was friendly and cooperative. The second phase was a one day cultural tour around Kosovo to visit historic monuments, and the third involved recording a song named “Peace” in Serbian, Albanian, and English with youth from the rock school in Mitrovica. This school lent a lot of support for these young people in order to produce the song, which was an excellent example of the work that these young people did - and the work of all youth in Mitrovica. “Peace” was played on local radio stations such as Radio Mitrovica and Radio KFOR and also published on the YouTube and Facebook websites.

Lyrics of the song “Peace”:
We’re stuck in a cloudy day;
We’re looking for some freedom
To shine upon us like the sun.
We’re going to find a way,
Left or right,
We’re searching for that day.

Kemi ngecur në një kohë pa diell,
po kërkojmë liri.
Por ne do të gjejmë rrugën tonë,
në paqe dhe lumturi.

Заглављени смо у облачан дан;
и тражимо слободу
да сија над нама као сунце.
Ми ћемо да нађемо начин,
лево или десно,
у потрази смо за тај дан.

Team Members:

In the company of one another, they saw the cultural monuments and natural beauty of Mitrovica, Vushtrri, Pristina, Gjilan, Ferizaj, Peja, Decan, Gjakova, Prizren, and Brezovica. Kosovo’s vast diversity of ethnic heritage sites was represented among the many places visited by the group. As a result, these youth were able to see different cultures and break the boundaries that previously seemed unbreakable for some of them. Participants established strong social contacts, continuing to stay in touch through the social network “Facebook”. The photos that group members took during the 4 day excursion are now displayed on the walls of schools in Mitrovica as an example of social cooperation. Through these activities, the quote “Together It’s Possible” was brought to life.

“Educating and Raising the Awareness of Consumers in Kosovo”

Печати

Location:
Gjakova/Mitrovica/Peja/Pristina/Prizren
Purpose:
Using the occasion of the World Consumer Rights Day (March 15th) to raise awareness and to inform Kosovo citizens about their rights and duties as consumers
Team members:
Shkumbin Asllani, Agnesa Fejzullahu, Lum Hoxha.
Target Audience:
All citizens of Kosovo.
Description:
Members of this team from Pristina promoted the Law defending consumers’ rights and informed people of the importance of this field as a step towards Kosovo’s integration into Europe. The project educated consumers on:
1) the law on consumers’ rights in Kosovo;
2) European Union guidelines; and
3) where customers should go to have their problems addressed.
Youth team members worked with many high school students, as they believe that they can spread the information to others in order to improve the knowledge people have about the products they buy. In each of the 5 cities where the team implemented the project, the group visited at least one school (visiting 3 in Mitrovica) to inform students and teachers directly about the problems, challenges, and rights of each of us as costumers. Advancing this knowledge was achieved by distributing 7,500 flyers about the relevant Kosovo laws and the EU Directive on Consumer Rights. The team also interviewed 500 people on the street about their experience with faulty or expired products, knowledge of laws to protect consumers, and the processes available to them to notify  authorities of potentially hazardous products. Team members then presented the statistical findings of the surveys to their peers. In each city, team members were assisted by 15 volunteers to conduct interviews and hand out flyers.
