The Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) is organising the first Intercultural Citizenship Education Virtual Exchange on 15 April from 11-12:30 CET. The event brings together a group of educators in the formal and non formal education sector who participated to the Regional Training for Trainers on Intercultural Citizenship Education organised by the ALF in November 2019 in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The Virtual Exchange is conceived to offer educators from different Euro-Mediterranean countries a space to encourage discussion and reflection on how the current pandemic has affected the work of educators and to share ideas on how the pandemic’s consequences on intercultural exchanges/dialogue can be minimized.

This meeting will build on the experience gathered by the ALF in developing and implementing technology-based virtual exchange activities for youth. This pilot will indicate the possibility of organising similar virtual meetings in the near future.

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.
