The Bootcamp “Addressing the Ecological Challenges in the Mediterranean” hosted 30 young civil society leaders, who are committed to tackling specific Mediterranean policy challenges beyond their national borders, and who were selected through an Open Call for Interest from 10 Arab countries. The Med Dialogue fellows Bootcamp focused on enhancing young leaders’ capacities to strategize, cooperate together and advocate for rights and equality in the region.
