THE KEY ROLE OF PARTNERSHIP IN INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE
THE ALF VIRTUAL MARATHON FOR DIALOGUE
The Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue in the EuroMed region will gather activities of ALF civil society Network and partner organizations to take place during 42 days from the 19th of May to the 29th of June. The aim of the VM is to highlight the importance of the Intercultural Dialogue to build sustainable societies in the EuroMed region, taking into consideration the challenges and opportunities brought about by the Covid19 pandemic. Towards this goal in addition to a rich program of civil society and partner-led activities, a series of Weekly Public Virtual Dialogues organized by the Anna Lindh Foundation will stimulate a broad conversation and reflection on major issues impacting mutual perceptions between people in the region and common action to jointly address social and cultural challenges affecting societies North, South, East and West of the Mediterranean.
Time: 3pm – 5pm CET
Duration: 2 hours
THE TOPIC OF THE PUBLIC DIALOGUE
The EU New Agenda for the Mediterranean reiterates that sustainable prosperity and resilience can only be built in strong partnership based on common values and dialogue across the Mediterranean. In this regard, the EU will seek to carry out cooperation through dialogues with all the stakeholders, including civil society actors, so that the diversity of interests and needs of all countries of the Southern Neighbourhood would be taken into account. The Agenda stresses the need for cooperation also at the sub-regional and the inter-regional level, and joint initiatives between partner countries. In this vein, evidence from the ALF Intercultural Trends Survey shows that respondents in SEM and European countries recognise the benefits of EuroMed cooperation at the human, scientific, environmental and economic level. Indeed, both country groups appear more assured of the support that NGOs and civil society organisations can obtain of this cooperation.
This public event will highlight that the implementation of the Agenda 2030, the European Green Deal and the Paris Agreement requires action at all levels to reach the sustainable development goals. Hence, a multi-level collaboration on global issues and dialogue engagement are crucial in the development of policy and actions on sustainable development.
