Mediterranean Capitals of Culture and Dialogue


The 43 Member States of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) launched the “Mediterranean Capitals of Culture & Dialogue” initiative during their 7th Regional Forum in November 2022.

Based on the call of Ministers of Culture of the Euro-Mediterranean region on 17 June 2022 in Naples, as well as the recommendation of more than 200 young representatives from the civil society of over 20 countries at the Forum des Mondes Méditerranéens on 7 February 2022 in Marseille, this initiative was shaped to further promote the diversity and shared identity of the Euro-Mediterranean region and contribute to a better mutual understanding of its peoples.

The Mediterranean Capitals of Culture & Dialogue is an initiative jointly coordinated by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF).
