UNESCO Forum announces enhanced communication support for “Young Arab Voices” and “NET-MED Youth”

Tue, 27/10/2015 - 10:30 -- Press Office

27-10-2015. The 2015 UNESCO Youth Forum held today a plenary “partners” session during which the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) was invited to announce plans for a large-scale communication and advocacy initiative in support of young ambassadors for dialogue. The new initiative, to be launched region-wide this December in Jordan, will centre on enhanced communication training with youth leaders. It will be run in association with the ALF and British Council’s flag-ship debate programme “Young Arab Voices” and UNESCO’s “NET-MED Youth”.

On 20th July, the Anna Lindh Foundation and UNESCO launched a new phase of partnership through an exchange of letters which set out priority areas of cooperation for youth development in the Mediterranean. This included: (a) Closer programme alignment between UNESCO "NET-MED Youth" and Young Arab Voices in selected countries; (b) Building and supporting large scale communication and advocacy campaigns with youth alumni; (c) Creating a permanent line of youth policy engagement via joined up work on International dialogue events, including the UNESCO youth forum and the third edition of the Anna Lindh Mediterranean Forum.
