Albanians Study How to Promote Tolerance in Children

Albania-2016-10-22-Albanians Study How to Promote Tolerance in Children

Vlora, Albania—Encouraging young people to be more tolerant and understanding was the focus of a seminar held by UPF of Albania.

Organized in collaboration with the Tirana Peace Council and the “Elite” private school, the October 22, 2016, seminar was titled “Educating Children and the Young Generation with the Feeling of Tolerance and Understanding.”

The program combined speeches with artistic performances prepared by the staff and the students of the “Elite” school.

Dr. No Hi Pak, a special advisor to UPF-Albania, gave a welcoming message.

The main speakers were Mr. Gaqo Apostoli, UPF-Albania chair; Mr. Qemajl Cejku, the vice chair of the Tirana Peace Council; Mrs. Eva Cipi, the chair of the Vlora Peace Council; and the pedagogical staff of the “Elite” school.

The activity lasted about two hours, with different presentations related to the topic, combined with artistic performances.

It was a very beautiful and colorful audience in which one could see public figures of the city and other VIPs, including Ambassadors for Peace. There were also high school pupils, university students and members of the Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP), an affiliated organization.

In total there were about 70 participants, many of whom expressed the desire that such events would be organized more often.

The program concluded with the appointment of three new Ambassadors for Peace. They remarked how much they appreciated the award and how grateful they felt for having been given the chance to join the family of Ambassadors for Peace. They expressed their determination to support the vision of UPF and attend future activities to contribute to creating a better world.
