About QM

Qendra Marrëdhënie (QM) is a nonprofit urban research and action group based in Tirana, Albania. QM supports institutions—from schools, to parent councils, to municipal agencies—with research and design expertise to improve neighborhood equity and the provision of well-being to people.

Currently, QM works with the Municipality of Tirana developing a School Streets program focused on the play and mobility needs of young children and their caregivers in neighborhoods. Supported by the Bernard van Leer Foundation’s Urban95 program, “Born Thriving” includes design guidelines, an evaluation and monitoring tool, and a program of pilot projects at schools across the city.

Neighborhood walkability projects are additionally supported by NACTO–GDCI’s “Streets for Kids”, the Creative Europe Western Balkan Fund, and GIZ Albania’s Sustainable Urban Transport Initiative.
