IVLP Impact Award Project: Assessing the Planetary Boundaries of Kosovo

This project assessed the planetary boundaries of Kosovo, focusing on both the social foundation and ecological ceiling. By conducting a comprehensive evaluation, the project identified the current status of Kosovo in relation to these boundaries. Through her two workshops, Antigona successfully raised awareness about environmental and social sustainability for 37 businesses, NGOs, and government entities, providing a holistic approach to understanding ecological boundaries and social needs in Kosovo. Her workshops allowed participants to establish strategic partnerships with key organizations like the Kosovo CSR Network and BCC, fostering a collaborative approach to sustainability. Antigona is certain that these training courses, which addressed 14 sustainable development goals, inspired a shift towards more responsible and conscious business practices in Kosovo, benefiting the community and the environment.

“Collaborating on this project has been a significant step forward in our efforts to promote CSR in Kosovo. The level of engagement and enthusiasm we saw from businesses was remarkable and speaks volumes about the project's impact." - Project Participants
