Representing Albania in activities that promote values and integration in the EU is one of the four pillars of AMAD’s program areas in contributing to the democracy, transparency, the rule of law, solidarity, etc. In addition to many promotional and lobbying activities, with a dedicated stand to the event and equipped with promotional materials, implemented under the title “Europatag 2022” (German: Europe Day 2022), AMAD also managed to hold a meeting at the Albanian Embassy in Vienna, together with the partner organisation Vienna goes Europe.
