Applications are now open for the Funded Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Forum 2020. The Forum will bring together participants to exchange practices. Further, to promote partnerships and to advocate for policy. Also, operational measures for a new horizon of people-to-people cooperation around the Mediterranean. Based on a set of common values and putting intercultural dialogue as the central tool for this cooperation and as a response to the main regional socio-cultural challenges.
The topics of discussion for the participants will be more cross-cultural understanding. Further, building a Mediterranean community with shared values. Also, based on mutual knowledge; more gender empowerment, underlining the central role of women as actors for dialogue. Identifying ways to make this role more visible and sustainable; a more sustainable future with increased opportunities. Further, for young people in terms of social participation and entrepreneurship and identifying shared approaches. Which is for regional environmental challenges; more interaction and exchanges across the Euro- Mediterranean, taking into consideration social dynamics of integration, acceptance of cultural diversity within the societies of the region, exchanges of experiences and know-how.
Forum 2020 also provides a strategic opportunity to reaffirm the Foundation’s intercultural dialogue mandate in the Balkans, with the Croatian EU Presidency offering a bridge between Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, and North Africa.
