On 2 December the Presence in Albania and the National Co-ordinator against Corruption launched a new public information campaign “Show the Face of Corruption”. As part of this campaign, the Presence is holding a series of interactive discussions on anti-corruption with students at around 30 high schools and universities across the country.
In addition, posters and banners are displayed in several cities as well as on some of the most visited Albanian online portals.
The discussions with students are led by well-known respected public figures and aim to engage students in critical thinking on topics such as the nature and causes of corruption; its social, political and economic consequences; and ways in which to fight it.
The Presence also launched an essay competition on “Young people say no to corruption”, designed to encourage students to reflect on the negative effects of corruption.
