During the start of 2022, members of the Spanish Network organised different events funded by the Anna Lindh Foundation, all of which sought to achieve greater intercultural dialogue.
On March 2nd 2022, within the framework of International Women’s Day, Azahara held the Azahara Awards in Girona to recognise women with a migrant background who bring together the values of solidarity, commitment, social transformation, sustainability and resilience.
Between March and April, the Euroarab Foundation organised “N@s Llaman Calle”, a project targeting youth in Granada and conceiving the streets as a space of diversity and interculturality. Different initiatives were implemented to bring together three tools of artistic expression linked to the street: street photography, rap and graffiti.
Finally, the Forum “COCO: Conta el Odio Cotidiano” took place the 25 and 26th of March in Madrid, and was coordinated by Cazalla Intercultural, Al Fanar Foundation and Jovesólides. Youth, political representatives, scholars, awareness campaigns experts and of social entities representatives attended the forum and jointly designed a Decalogue of concrete measures for political advocacy to tackle everyday racism.
These activities capture the spirit of the new “Agenda for the Mediterranean” based on the conviction that, through joint work and cooperation, challenges can become opportunities.
