The Ideas Partnership is NGO founded in 2009 by Elizabeth Gowing, Robert Wilton and Ardian Arifaj.

Activities

Working with partner organisations and local institutions, The Ideas Partnership is supporting the people of Kosovo as they protect their unique cultural heritage, nurture their environment, and educate a new generation of citizens.

A lot of activities depends on overy splendid volunteers – people from Kosovo, or people just passing through who’ve found an excuse to stay for a while. A lot of the ideas are theirs, and a lot of the hard work.

  • campaigning against unnecessary plastic bags;
