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.

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
In February 2021 the European Commission and the High Representative today adopted a joint communication proposing an ambitious and innovative new Agenda for the Mediterranean aiming at relaunching and strengthen the strategic partnership between the European Union and its Southern Neighbourhood partners. The Agenda aims to join forces in fighting climate change and speeding up the green and digital transitions, to renew the commitment to shared values, to jointly address forced displacement and migration, and to strengthen the unity of the EU, its Member States and the Southern Mediterranean countries in promoting peace and security in the Mediterranean region.
Against this backdrop, the Anna Lindh Foundation – the first institution created by the governments of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership with the mandate to bring together civil society and citizens across the Mediterranean to build trust and improve mutual respect and understanding between cultures – will continue to play a crucial role in promoting intercultural dialogue and moving forward towards more inclusive and sustainable societies in the EuroMed region.
