“Driven by Optimism – Engines of Change in the Balkans“


Bojan Boskovic: “We had a clear vision of removing the dictatorship in 2000. This is how we started”…”My greatest achievement was the “ability to be over-productive over the course of 15 years, to create a lot of projects, meet crazy people, employ friends and be an inspiration; To improve things; Change things; To make a revolution; To make a movement.”

Erion Veliaj: “We deem that free elections are the core and basis of any healthy democracy in the world. They represent accountability through the power of the vote and a hope and promise of effective and honest governance, given that ultimately it is – and it must be – the people that decide who represents their wishes, expectations and dreams.”
