In Albania there is an urgent need for passionate, educated youth who are willing to work for environmental conservation. The project “Outdoor Ambassadors” aimed to create a safe and positive experience for Albanian youth, and instill in them an appreciation of nature and a sense of responsibility for protecting it. Through this project, 11 Outdoor Ambassador clubs were established in 11 cities, respectively Fier, Laç, Kavaja, Divjaka, Pogradec, Fushe Arrez, Elbasan, Librazhd, Lezhe, Erseke and Gjirokaster. The youth clubs, with memberships between 150-200 youths, aged 10-18, met twice weekly to discuss Albania’s environment, ecology, biodiversity, waterways, and wildlife. Club members were engaged in classroom activities and in-the field observation and exploration. They were challenged to identify the most pressing ecological concerns in their communities and plan, develop, and implement conservation projects that address these issues. Indeed, one of the great features of this project is its long term sustainability impact, and that it had a much wider effect in the community than expected. The monthly Outdoor Ambassador activities generated a great amount of local volunteering from local community members and resulted in about 27 public environmental initiatives spread around the country. In summer, 48 dedicated club members, selected from clubs around the country, participated in a five day camp in Erseke. The camp provided them with advanced training in environmental science and conservation as well as leadership and teamwork skills. The Vodafone Albania Foundation’s partner in implementing this project was the Peace Corps in Albania.
