The increasing awareness on Climate Change, has put science and policymakers in front of new
challenges. The EU promotes strong climate action, sustainable development and protection of the
environment. EU law contains provisions addressing climate change and energy efficiency. Major
initiatives directly related to Climate Change have been developed within the EU, aiming to mitigate this
problem by offering a number of different approaches and solutions.
This web page has been designed to accommodate Jean Monnet Modules offered at the University of Tirana, Faculty of Economics, which deal with issues related to climate, energy, disasters, and financial market response to these challenges. These modules are developed to emphasize the EU agenda in these matters, and the way the education system is including this agenda in the curricula and teaching and learning process.
More specifically, the different pages within this space will offer information on the development of the following Jean Monnet Modules:
