Women at the forefront of emergency: our contribution to EURegionsWeek on 13 October

The Italy-Albania-Montenegro Programme at EU Regions week 2021! An annual four-day event (11-14 October) during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, and implement European Union cohesion policy.

On 13 October, from 9:30 to 11:00, we will be among the protagonists of the virtual workshop “Women at the forefront of the emergency: resilience stories”. 

Join us and listen to the stories of women directly involved in civil protection and resilience activities, who will speak about their experience in emergency management. Watch videos from projects fostering cooperation among civil protection organisations, and resilience and recovery situations in which women are also the protagonists.  Give your personal contribution to the debate!

It’s a joint event, organized by Puglia Region, in partnership with Interreg IPA CBC Italy-Albania-Montenegro, Interreg V-A Greece-Italy, ENI CBC MED, the Municipality of Tirana, and the Regional Council of Lezha.

The main target groups are young people and civil society, as the final aim is to contribute to a change in mentality and raise awareness of women's value and potential to create a better world.

Among the testimonies, that of our project  FILA which  in the face of the pandemic quickly adapted and used its 3D printer to produce protective equipment for essential medical and economic staff, and that of our project 3 WATCH-OUT,  engaged in civil protection and risk prevention actions.
