Thirty young civil society leaders will carry out the “10 Days for the Mediterranean” campaign, comprising of thirty initiatives taking place conjointly between 1-30 June 2020 in the Southern Mediterranean to raise awareness on ecological issues. This action is developed and supported by the EU-funded “Med Dialogue” for Rights and Equality Programme, in 10 South Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, and Syria.
These young leaders took part in first Med Dialogue Fellows Bootcamp on the topic of “Addressing the ecological challenges in the Mediterranean” in January 2020. They will carry out local awareness raising campaigns, trainings and advocacy actions to help promote sustainable practices and environmental protection measures around four main themes: Climate change, Agroecology and forests, plastic waste, and marine pollution.
Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality is a 3-year (2019 – 2022) EU-funded Technical Assistance regional Programme with the overall objective to strengthen the role of CSOs active at the regional scale, in building sustainable development, regional cohesion and social resilience, as well as in influencing policy-making in the Southern Neighborhood and the Euro-Mediterranean Space.
