On Monday 21 May 2018, the Republic of Chameria president Festim Lato attended the launch of the EU Green week in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The event was opened by the Mayor of Utrecht, Mr. Jan van Zanen and the European Commissioner for the Environment, Karmenu Vella, who explained the importance of a clean environment for the health and prosperity of the people in Europe.
A major topic of the start of the EU Green week was the way that cities can take the lead in making our world greener and cleaner. This is especially relevant considering that three-quarters of the European population lives in cities. A panel discussion with the Mayor of Utrecht and the Mayor of Tirana, Mr. Erion Veliaj, provided many examples of good governance.
At the event the Chamerian president had a long discussion with the Mayor of Tirana, Mr. Erion Veliaj, about the situation of the Cham community and informed him about the upcoming conference in Tirana on 27 May 2018.
