First Round Closed - Call for Expression of Interest - Virtual Marathon Network Activities

The ALF Virtual Marathon for Dialogue is running!

From the 4th of May to the 15th of June, the ALF networks of the 42 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean organise 63 national and cross-network activities all around the Mediterranean basin to emphasise that intercultural dialogue is the only way towards sustainable societies in the EuroMed region, in line with the Declaration of Barcelona, in the wider framework of the “agenda 2030” and in the new context of the outbreak of Covid-19. During these 42 days, the ALF also organises 5 big webinars to address the important issues and challenges the EuroMed is facing nowadays.

To capitalise on the Network Members’ knowledge and experience in addressing challenges related to intercultural dialogue at regional and sub-regional level especially during the times of the pandemic, the ALF is launching a Call for Expression of interest to mobilise its Network to implement the Virtual Marathon’s activities through a service contract, with the support of a regional media campaign which will make visible and meaningful all the activities undertaken, as well as its their outcomes.

The ALF is also looking for a huge mobilisation of all stakeholders who can make the difference, from the very members of the civil society to academia, media and private sectors, to help thinking globally and act locally - and vice versa - and, very especially, to the decision makers, from national to EU levels, to help implementing the changes. We need more than ever to engage of all the actors of the Region to work towards our common future and the future of our children, from the cooperation and development of a common new vision to the transformation of this vision into public policies. The Head of National Networks and the members of ALF will be the keystone to pave the way of such a big movement.

Deadline for Submission: 24 March 2021 at 23:59 Egypt time (GMT +2)
