Next year, in the framework of the Berlin Process –  a diplomatic initiative linked to the EU enlargement and boosting regional cooperation among the Western Balkans –  to be co-chaired by Bulgaria and North Macedonia, main emphasis will be placed on the environment, i.e. funding programs and financial aid to help countries in the region tackle environmental problems.

The announcement came from Ambassador Samuel Zbogar, the Head of EU Delegation to North Macedonia, who met on Wednesday with Minister of Environment and spatial Planning, Naser Nuredini.

The two discussed about air pollution and shared other countries’ experience in solving these problems.

Minister Nuredini praised the EU’s support in terms of environmental protection, and expressed hope that the country will invest maximum efforts for successful utilization of EU funds and realization of the ongoing and future projects related to protection of the environment.

Ambassador Zbogar emphasized the need to raise awareness of the citizens of North Macedonia, in particular the young population, about environmental issues. Raising public awareness involves creating a specific messaging campaign about eco-activism, initiated by the European Union’ Delegation to North Macedonia.

EU Delegation’s new campaign entitled “Let’s keep it clean like in our home” is an important part of awareness-raising, with a main emphasis placed on the individual responsibility of each and every citizen in protecting the environment.
