The 15th edition of the literary contest “A Sea of Words” organised by the European Istitute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) in collaboration with the Anna Lindh Foundation Secretariat has been launched, calling EuroMed youths to write about overcoming gender-based discrimination.

The contest aims to create spaces for intercultural encounters between young people in order to promote exchanges of experiences and ideas between peers, identify shared values in the region and transcend those stereotypes that tear people apart. By doing so, it aims to equip young people with tools so they can play a relevant role in future societies and actively promote the values of diversity and co-existence in the Euro-Mediterranean area.

Participation is open to young people between 18 and 30 years of age. The deadline for participation is 10 July 2022.

The authors of the 10 best texts – selected by an international jury – will be invited to Barcelona on November 24th, 2022, in the framework of the Mediterranean Day, to participate for three days in the awards ceremony, creative workshops and cultural exchanges to create common spaces of encounter.
