April 28, 2020
On 23 April 2020, the Anna Lindh Foundation and the EU Delegation for the United Nations, co-organised the first in a series of Virtual Dialogues, on Youth, Peace and Security (UNSCR 2250 2419), in collaboration with the European Parliament’s Young Political Leaders (YPL) and the Foundation’s Young Mediterranean Voices (YMV) Programme. The Virtual Dialogue surfaced young leader’s views from 7 different countries on both sides of the Mediterranean. Their recommendations were integrated in the EU Statement to the Security Council on 27 April, 2020.
Young leaders highlighted their commitment to broadening their participation in the prevention and resolution of conflict, and underscored the necessity to incorporate their voices in bottom-up decision-making processes related to the Security Council’s youth peace and security agenda.
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 (€10 million) and the EU Member States (€6 million).
