Within its Vision Med 2030 consultation process, Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality EU-Programme gathered around 50 regional civil society representatives from both shores of the Mediterranean from 15 to 17 November, 2021, in Brussels at the “North-South” Workshop.

This event aimed at envisioning the future of the Mediterranean region for the years to come, and at promoting a pilot advocacy campaign on the Mediterranean as our common destiny. It developed a coherent, shared set of conceptualizations, values, and operational recommendations on how to build an integrated, common space in the region.

It was the occasion for the participants to find out about good practices of cross-border action by regional organisations and “Our Mediterranean” advocacy campaign (a variety of activities including written and audiovisual stories, research, expertise exchanges and multi-stakeholder debate) on our collective heritage and the common issues of these current times. Furthermore, they had the opportunity to network with European CSOs working on rights and social change, as well as with decision-makers from the European parliament and other regional institutions.

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.
