The Guardian: Tirana, one of the most friendly cities for children in World

 The transformation that Tirana is undergoing today has also attracted the attention of Britain's largest newspaper, The Guardian, who has devoted a special article to the innovative approach that the Albanian capital is taking to being friendly to children.

After the "The Economist", or other magazines as Vanity Fair, Vogue, L'Espresso, etc., The Guardian classifies Tirana as one of the most friendly children's cities along with Rotterdam, Bogotá, Lexington and Vancouver.

In its article, Laura Laker, writes that despite the voice of a minority protesting to build of a playground at the Artificial Lake, the majority won, while pointing out that throughout the city were built 31 new playgrounds, which were once spaces occupied by informal constructions.

The article also pays attention to Skanderbeg Square and Tirana Municipality's initiatives for days withoutcars, which have led to a decrease of the pollution by 15%. Also, she writes that unlike many other states in the world that erect walls, Tirana is building a tree wall surrounding the city for more oxygen.

"The Guardian" adds that Tirana boasts of "city council for children," where new representatives meet with the mayor, debating, while quoting Veliaj as calling them "the best advocates to persuade their parents to recycle, to walk and go biking in school."
