Anna Lindh Dialogue Forum in Stockholm

 

For the first time, Stockholm will host the Anna Lindh Foundation Nordic Baltic Dialogue Forum on 8 - 9 September, 2016.

Building on last year’s joint meeting in Tallinn of ALF members from Sweden, Finland and Estonia, this year the Swedish Network of the Anna Lindh Foundation will host in Stockholm a larger civil society forum bringing together ALF network members from Nordic and Baltic countries, namely Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Poland and Sweden in a unique opportunity to network, dialogue, exchange good practices, share project ideas and lessons learned.

This Forum will focus on three main themes: youth, gender and migration.

The first day of the Forum will be dedicated to strategic debate and dialogue between participants around relevant topics such as:
a) Migration and Integration: Key Role of Civil Society in Fostering Inclusive Citizenship
b) Challenging Perceptions through an Alternative Narrative on Gender
c) Empowering Youth: Active Engagement in Countering Violent Extremism

The second day of the Forum will welcome self-organised workshops by network members for sharing good practices and project ideas. In addition, there will be a special workshop on effective communication and visibility tools by a professional communication and social media expert from MENA region.

This forum is organised with the support of:
- European Representation in Stockholm (Europahuset)
- National Museums of World Culture in Sweden (Världskulturmuseerna)
- Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs
- Anna Lindh Foundation
- Foundation of the Finnish Institute in the Middle East

The Forum is an important step for the preparation of the Anna Lindh Foundation #MedForum2016 in Malta which will take place on 24 - 25 October 2016.
