The "Green Corridor" was inaugurated
As part of the "Manifesta" Biennial, the "Green Corridor" of Prishtina was inaugurated
The railway is often seen as a symbol of the exodus of 1999, when hundreds of thousands of citizens from Kosovo left the country to escape the war.
As part of "Manifesta 14" in Prishtina, a part of the railway track has been transformed into a pedestrian path that connects the former Brick Factory with the Palace of Youth and Sports.
Present at the inauguration of this project were the Minister of Infrastructure, Liburn Aliu, the Chief of Cabinet of the MCYS, Klodeta Krasniqi, the mayor of the municipality of Prishtina, Përparim Rama, the director of "Manifesta", Hedwig Fijen, representatives from the UN- Habitat Kosova and representatives from the Embassy of Sweden in Pristina.
It was emphasized that this intervention will not only make it easier to move between different parts of Prishtina, but will provide a new green space for the community within the urban environment.
MCYS chief of staff, Klodeta Krasniqi, said that Manifesta as a platform has made art very accessible and tangible for citizens, stressing that such platforms are important for cities.
The project "Manifesta 14" - "Green Corridor" - designed by Carlo Ratti Associati, has been implemented by UN-Habitat Kosovo and financed by the Government of Sweden.
Dozens of students from schools in Pristina also participated in this activity.
