Abstract

The Drin River is the longest river in Albania and is a bountiful natural resource to the five countries it traverses. The river experiences problems such as pollution from a variety of sources, disrupted water flow from dams and gravel excavation, and endangerment to the aquatic ecosystem. Our project aimed to raise awareness of the Drin River’s importance and to encourage a societal change in the river’s management in collaboration with the Water Supply and Sewerage Association of Albania (SHUKALB). To accomplish this, we produced a documentary showcasing the Drin River and its issues that will be circulated through social media directed towards our targeted audience. It is our hope that this documentary will play a part in leading to major progress in cleaning and protecting the river.
