KWN Organizes Workshop: “Women Advocate Locally”

KWN organized a two-day workshop in Durres on 28-30 Mar., seeking better cooperation between women in municipal assemblies and KWN member organizations. Within KWN’s Strategic Plan, an important goal is that women participate actively in politics and decision-making at local and national levels. KWN sees that active participation will be possible only via cooperation and joint advocacy on issues that women consider important at the local and nation levels.

During the workshop, women in politics and women’s organizations collaborated to create a joint plan for shared issues on which they can advocate together, towards improving the position of women at the local level.

Fifty women from the following municipalities participated: Prizren, Gjilan, Novo Brdo, Obilic, Dragash, Ferizaj, Viti, Drenas, Lipjan and Vushtrri.
