Common actions for common goals. It is the summary of the first meeting between the Albanian associations of Emilia Romagna carried out in Forlì on 24 last April.
Established on the initiative of Juvenilja, the intent of the associations is to meet in the coming months to build together profitable and lasting forms of collaboration and representation at the regional level. After a series of bilateral meetings between Juvenilja and 9 associations in the region, the first meeting was reached with a platform to be discussed and shared together. 8 present associations: Juvenilja (Forlì), Scanderbeg (Parma), Tutti Insieme (Bologna), USAB (Bologna), Madre Teresa (Ravenna), Integriamoci Insieme (Cervia), Amicizia (Rimini) and Albanianews. In addition, the Agimi associations (Rimini Center section) and Illyria (Rimini) also participate in this journey, which could not come to the meeting. From Tutti Together founded in 1996 to Mother Teresa born two weeks ago, all the associative realities are aware that the time is ripe for a greater collaboration so far developed only on a bilateral level. Moreover, being part of the second foreign community by number of residents in Emilia Romagna, present in many areas such as entrepreneurship, free professions, institutions, social, art, with strong individuality but with a weak associative culture, increases the responsibility and the challenge of being able to gradually build an effective network that also becomes a catalyst for the birth of other associations. Five common objectives on which the associations have decided to develop their future collaboration: the promotion and cultivation of Albanian culture, the consolidation of Albanian associations at the local level and the support for the formation of others, the struggle of all forms of discrimination , support in all forms of the Albanian community and the strengthening of relations between the two countries. The first actions will concern a website, periodic meetings and the presentation of common projects. The site will give associations the opportunity to be on the net within a single virtual "home". A page for each one in which to put all the information about one's association, from its history to the scheduled activities. And then also a forum on organizational and tax issues. Instead the periodic meetings will serve to work on possible projects and the form that will be given in the future to the whole of the associations that from the first meeting came out without a name. Not for this reason the initiative is not to be taken seriously. In fact, in the coming days we will work together virtually for the draft of a memorandum of collaboration on the platform discussed and approved by all. The associations have met the 5 next June in Parma, on the occasion of EtnoGusti, an intercultural initiative organized for some years by the Scanderbeg Association in collaboration with other associations of Parma. Obviously, we would be there too. Albanianews will be media partner of this new reality and will follow in the future the activities of the associations that adhere to it.
