Municipalité de Berat ALBANIE -


The municipality of Berat is the local public institution in the city of Berat. the city of Berat has a population of 98.000 inhabitants and it is located in southern Albania. Environment, youth and cultural heritage are three priorities of the municipality. The city of Berat is a World heritage historic city since 2008. The historic landscape blends in with the natural landscape forming an impressive city. In this project there are three departments engaged, the Urban Planning department dealing with the environment, the cultural heritage department and youth department. The municipality of Berat runs a Youth center where youth in the city engage in different fields, such as environment, intercultural competences, foreign language learning etc. A youth group has been set up in the youth center which deals mostly with environmental issues. The name of the group is Outdoor Ambassadors. Youth meet once or twice per week and plan and organize activities such as city cleanups, awareness raising activities showing movies and pictures of our local environment as well as creating art and playing outdoors in order to engage more the community. The activities focus mostly in the historic center and on the river which are the two most representative assets of the city. In addition, the municipality runs a community center for development in the historic center where different activities are also organized with youth such intercultural exchange, community activism, technology classes etc. The municipality also supports youth to develop their intercultural competences through the support it provides for the French Alliance Berat where children learn French language and culture. Very often students from the French alliance collaborate with students from the youth center in projects tackling different areas such as environment and heritage. Every year students organize and collaborate to implement a cultural heritage restoration camp. The camp runs for two weeks with the participation of young people from France who are members of different scout groups. All youngsters meet, exchange and work on site to improve the environment and the historic fabric of the city.
