In the framework of the celebration of World Environment Day – June 5, 2016 we traveled from MedAlb Institut office in Tirana, to the Morning Stone in Shishtavec, Kukes, at the height of 2000 m above sea level. MedAlb Institut joined a group of environmental associations of Albania that organized a joint activity in Shishtavec, Kukes.

This year’s slogan for the celebration of this day was “To Join All for a Better Environment”. This activity brought together civilians, environmentalists and civil society representatives from both Albania and Kosovo.

Kukes area in general and that of Shishtavec in particular, is remarkable for a very beautiful natural landscape and for a rich biodiversity. Here is also the habitat where we can find the royal plant of our mountains, Gentiana Lutea, the plant which also represents the logo of MedAlb Institut.
