Anna Lindh Foundation launches call for the EuroMed Capital for Dialogue Award
July 12, 2021
Cities are on the frontline for promoting diversity, inclusiveness, social cohesion, and sustainable development and the coronavirus pandemic has even deepened some of the existing social challenges. Thus within its Intercultural Cities and Learning Programme, the Anna Lindh Foundation(ALF) launched the EuroMed Capital for Dialogue Award.
The Award aims to shed light on innovative and interdisciplinary practices that involve different actors ranging from local authorities to civil society to educators, journalists, academics, civil society and private bodies for the promotion of cross-cultural education and artistic production, social cohesion and intercultural interaction, combating stereotyping and intolerance.
It also aims to acknowledge multicultural cities and cities which have a vision, which implement intercultural policies and support intercultural initiatives and EuroMed social and cultural collaborations.
In the framework of the programme and to encourage a systemic approach for dialogue at the local level, to give visibility to good practices and exchange knowledge across the EuroMed region, between July and October, the ALF will also organise a series of Local Dialogue Platforms bringing together local authority representatives, civil society, educators and academics.
