OAA: Climate marches in Tirana demanding “Climate Action Now”

The Organic Agriculture Association (OAA), SEENET network member from Albania, is promoting and co-organizing protests in Albania in the context of the climate strikes movement, demanding “Climate Action Now” from the Albanian government and world leaders.

Within the framework of the last Global climate strike week, the first climate march in Tirana took place on 20th September 2019, co-organized by OAA with three other Albanian organizations, including EDEN Environmental Center which is also a SEENET network member. In this march to Skanderbeg square more than 300 people participated. Further marches were announced for the comming Fridays.

Here you can watch a video from the march and see some OAA photos.

Before the march itself, OAA did a short campaign, including social media, talks on TV and articles published mainly on OAA's web-portal and its related Facebook page.

The first climate march was followed by the promotion of the activity in social media and engagement in raising its visibility as well as population's awareness. The activity even got international attention with Greta Thunberg posting Tirana march's video on her facebook page.

The next Climate march in Tirana will happen this friday 4th October - preparations and arragements are already on-going. Here is the Facebook event.

OAA asks SEENET network to support this Climate march - both financialy through one of the subgrants offered, and through solidarity with the march, including support photos and messages from the network members that will be published in our social media.
