Aged 18-30? Your chance to take part in a Policy Dialogue with the EU High-Representative for Foreign Affairs
February 14, 2017
Young people from the Southern Mediterranean partner countries have until Sunday, 19 February to apply to take part in a two-day forum in Brussels, that includes a dialogue meeting with the EU High-Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini, and outreach activities with Brussels-based institutions, policy-makers and civil society networks. The initiative is being run in association with the ‘Young Mediterranean Voices’, the flagship regional debate programme of the Anna Lindh Foundation.
The forum will take place on 22-23 March, and the initial outcomes of the event will be presented on 24 March in Rome on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, as part of the debate on the future of the EU.
The invitation is open to young people between the ages of 18 and 30 from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The Anna Lindh Foundation described the opportunity as a “pioneering initiative that will be the basis for a new, long-term structured dialogue involving EU decision-makers, regional institutions and authentic youth voices from the south and north of the Mediterranean.”
The Anna Lindh Foundation for Inter-Cultural Dialogue promotes knowledge, mutual respect and inter-cultural dialogue between the people of the Euro-Mediterranean region, working through a network of more than 3,000 civil society organisations in 43 countries. Its budget is co-funded by the EU (EUR 10 million) and the EU Member States (EUR 6 million).
