Seventy civil society actors, teachers, youth workers and educators from nine countries are gathered in the Finnish capital Helsinki to take part in the Anna Lindh Network Days for Intercultural Citizenship Education.

Participants come from Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Morocco, Poland, Sweden, Tunisia and Turkey.

The event started with a forum at the weekend where participants discussed the strategic results of the 2016 Anna Lindh MED FORUM which took place in Malta, including panel discussions on intersectional identities and education, and the role of civil society in fostering intercultural learning. In addition, interactive workshops were put in place to allow participants to share their ideas on fighting hate speech and extremism, encouraging language learning as a tool for intercultural dialogue and highlighting the power of arts in education.

From 28-31 August, a training is taking place dedicated to 22 actors from both the formal and non-formal education sectors in the Euro-Med region. It is carried out by trainers who are experts in the field of intercultural education. The training will rely on the capacity building methodology presented in the Anna Lindh Foundation Education Handbook on Intercultural Citizenship in the Euro-Med region.
