Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue launched to showcase initiatives and discuss future intercultural orientations
October 1, 2020
On 30 September, the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) officially launched the Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue in the EuroMed region – ALF Contribution to the 25th Anniversary of the Barcelona Process. It consists in a series of cultural activities, weekly webinars on main issues for the promotion of EuroMed cultural cooperation, virtual trainings, seminars, exhibitions, debates led by the ALF Networks and partners, and building on all the work the ALF had done in preparation of MedForum 2020.
At this historic moment for the EuroMed cooperation, the Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue aims to offer a platform to analyse the orientations for the future within the current context but also to make even more visible the work for dialogue done at the institutional and grass-root level and that is still little known to the broad public.
The Anna Lindh Foundation is an organisation shared and resourced by forty-three Euro-Mediterranean countries with the mandate to bring people together and promote intercultural dialogue. With its headquarters in Alexandria, the Anna Lindh Foundation runs a EuroMed network of over 4000 civil society organisations with the aim of facilitating their collaborations and common actions.
The programme of the Foundation is focused on activities in fields which are essential for human and social dialogue: Culture and Creativity; Education and Intercultural Learning; Urban Spaces and Citizenship; Media and Public Opinion.
