Before the General Assembly
Before the General Assembly, the Albanian Youth Delegates go through a series of preparatory meetings and trainings with UNA Albania and/or seminars and webinars organized by volunteers from European UNAs, incumbent youth delegates, public institutions, etc. Moreover, they will follow an internship program at the Albanian Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs (“MEFA”) for a period of 2 months. The youth delegates, in partnership with UNA Albania’s staff will conduct meetings in at least 5 major Albanian cities with as many young people as possible where they will gather opinions on the most pressing issues and possible solutions of the youth in that city/region, while also advocating for UN values and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They may conduct online surveys, online meetings and other forms of cost-effective research. Hence, the youth delegates’ priority areas will be constituted by the feedback of the youth meetings and Albania’s foreign policy priorities. Moreover, the youth delegates will create and submit for approval a Strategy and Action Plan with goals, priorities and events during their mandate and help manage the official website of the UNYD Albania and the relevant social network pages.
