Open call for A SEA OF WORDS 2023 - "Artificial Intelligence and Youth: Ethical Commitment and Critical Thinking"


Open call for A SEA OF WORDS 2023: "Artificial Intelligence and Youths: Ethical Commitment and Critical Thinking"

To reflect on the impact of artificial intelligence on society, looking into the ethical dilemmas it can raise, the fight against manipulation and the exploration of emerging creativity and new talents. That is the challenge about which the European Institute of the Mediterranean and the Anna Lindh Foundation invite you to write at the 16th edition of the literary contest "A Sea of Words” aimed at young people from 43 Euro-Mediterranean countries.

In this new edition of a Sea of Words, we invite young European and Mediterranean authors to write a story about the impact of artificial intelligence on their societies, placing special emphasis on the dilemmas in terms of values and ethical criteria that their use and how to promote talent and creativity in the face of instrumentalization and manipulation.

The authors of the 10 best stories – selected by an international jury – will be invited to Barcelona on 9 November 2023 to participate for three days in the awards ceremony, creative workshop activities, and cultural exchanges. This year, the winners will participate in a workshop designed to identify and formulate proposals for the next edition
