PEN and Science for Change Movement have continued to measure the air quality. This morning, activists of PEN and the Movement for Change Science organized the first action as part of the campaign “Protect Your Children From the Invisible Killer” at the entrance of the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning in Prishtina.
The action organized before the Ministry aimed at breaking the silence of this institution regarding the issue of air pollution in Prishtina and to seek more transparency and accountability from this institution.
Our activists were present at Mother Teresa Square all day, measuring the air pollution in real time and informing citizens. In Kosovo, politicians often use the phrase “children and youth are the future of this country …” – an expression that has already lost its meaning. Because it is precisely children and young people (of course, along with other groups) that are poisoned by air in Prishtina; and are suffering the consequences of the negligence of the institutions.
