Minister Bora Muzhaqi launches consultation tour on revision of the “Youth” law

The Minister of State for Youth and Children, Bora Muzhaqi, has started the consultation tour for the revision of the Law “On Youth” and the Law “On Volunteering”.

The first meeting was held in Kurbin with the Mayor Majlinda Cara and a group of young people from Kurbin and the surrounding area, and then in Shkodra with the Deputy Mayor and a group of young people willing to make suggestions.

During these meetings, the young people had the opportunity to present their recommendations and suggestions for the improvement of legislation concerning youth and volunteering.

In their discussions, the young people emphasised the need for the inclusion of student government representatives in the National Youth Council, stressing that a fair representation of the youth community requires specific quotas for young people in conditions of marginalization and criteria for gender equality.

Regarding the law on volunteering, young people were quite positive about volunteering programmes of different durations, preferring those of one to three months. They emphasised the need to cover personal expenses for volunteers and to recognize the period of volunteering as seniority and for applications for studies.

During the meeting, young people filled in surveys expressing their opinions on the funding of voluntary projects and the best ways to get information about voluntary projects and initiatives. The “Youth Change Laws” tour aims to ensure that young people’s voices are heard and included in the process of revising laws that directly affect them, as Minister Muzhaqi has done in drafting the National Youth Strategy.
