5th UfM Regional Forum: Civil Society Segment
The contribution of civil society has been recognised by the signatories of the 1995 Barcelona Declaration as fundamental in the process of development of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership and as an essential factor for greater understanding and closeness between the people. 25 years later, civil society actors are still working hard on the ground, pushing boundaries and innovating to address the major challenges faced in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Barcelona Process/5th UfM Regional Forum, the Union for the Mediterranean has decided to give a special focus to people-to-people cooperation. A virtual civil society conference will be held on the 25 of November with a view to showcasing successful initiatives and projects from relevant actors that promote on a daily basis Euro-Mediterranean cooperation on the ground.
The Civil Society Segment takes places in the framework of the 5th UfM Regional Forum, bringing together the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the UfM Member States on 27 November 2020 to reaffirm their commitment to the principles of the Barcelona Process.
