SEEU Celebrates Europe Day

In a tribute to Europe Day, the EU Info Point and the SEEU Faculty of Law organized a panel discussion on the topic ‘Women in the Protection of the Environment,’ featuring the panelists Merita Maksuti, from Movement EcoGuerilla, and Elmedina Abdullai from the Movement Mother and Child.

The Dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof. Dr. Emine Zendeli, delivered the opening remarks, in which she spoke about the role that the European Union has played in creating peace and progress in Europe as well as in Macedonia.

The discussion brought together scholars, activists, university students and high schools students, and created the opportunity to discuss methods about how citizens can protect the environment and, in particular, the importance of women in raising public awareness about this issue.

At the same event, the EU Info Point Director, Prof. Dr. Besa Arifi, awarded prizes for the best literary essay contest at 1) SEEU level and 2) Tetovo high school level. Then the audience had the opportunity to hear the visions for a European Macedonia of the two winners of those contests, Meirem Miftari (SEEU) and Fitore Shafi (High School Nikolla Shtejn).
