As part of the “Tirana European Youth Capital 2022” program, Scidev is pleased to launch the “Tirana Digital Rights Festival” project with the financial support of the National Youth Congress in collaboration with the Municipality of Tirana. This project aims to strengthen the capacities of 25 young Albanians in the recognition and promotion of digital rights in the country and region. The young people selected to be part of the program will participate in several online mentoring sessions on digital rights, which will be finalized with a 2-day-length hackathon where the project participants will set up an online platform that will serve as an information channel on digital rights for young people in the Balkans. During this project, the participants will:

  1. Be trained on digital rights.
  2. Engage in an online campaign promoting the importance of security in the digital world.
  3. Participate in three Digital Right Talks with Albanian Youth from the diaspora.
  4. Create an online platform incorporated within the Scidev website, in Albanian and English, to inform young people about digital rights

This project is organized within the Tirana European Youth Capital 2022 program with the financial support of the National Youth Congress in cooperation with the Municipality of Tirana.
