During October, within Erasmus + Days, a 1-day event was organized at the University of Tirana. Dr. Perseta Grabova and Dr. Elona Pojani, part of the academic staff managing the Jean Monnet Module project named “Promoting CCA and DRM in the framework of EU Integration” (DREUCC), held a presentation in order to inform participants about the objectives and expected results of the project.
Present at this activity were Prof. Dr. Artan Hoxha, Rector of the University of Tirana, Mrs. Ada Ramaj, Head of Erasmus + Office for Albania, Mrs. Anne-Elisabeth Gautier, Attaché for Cooperation from French Embassy, as well as members of the academic staff of the University of Tirana.
The project focuses on promoting education in the areas of “Disaster Risk Management” and “Adaptation to Climate Change”, addressed in the framework of European Integration.
Improving knowledge, more compelling evidence, and a greater focus on innovation are essential to a clearer understanding of climate change and disaster risk; to strengthen recovery capabilities and informed approaches to risk-making policy-making and to contribute to effective, sustainable and inclusive development. The EU agenda highlights these issues and some criteria to address Climate Change and Disasters as requirements for achieving integration into the EU community. Through the integration of the field of climate change and disaster risk management in the educational process, it is contributing to the fulfillment of these criteria, indirectly affecting the EU integration process.
In this activity, the academic staff managing the DREUCC project shared with other participants the experience of designing and promoting modules related to the field of European Integration. In addition, it was discussed among the academic staff on the future cooperation between faculties and in inter-disciplinary fields within the objectives of the Jean Monnet program, a program which finances and supports activities related to the development and promotion of courses related to the field of European Integration.
