According to climate scientists globally we have less than 12 years to prevent catastrophic climate change impact, until we hit the 1.5 °C tipping point. Kosovo is a small country with around 2 million inhabitants, among which more than 50 % are young people between 18 and 30 years old. Their future and future of their children will depend on nowadays decision within development policies, mostly regarding energy, transport, agriculture, urbanization. Even though Kosovo has a small scale impact on the climate change compared to bigger countries, our actions affect our lives and lives of future generations.
