Open call for Euro-Mediterranean youth to participate in Intercultural Competencies training
April 26, 2021
In the framework of the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) Virtual Marathon for Dialogue in the EuroMed region, ALF and UNESCO are organising a training on Intercultural Competencies for Youth in the Euro-Mediterranean region on 17 May 2021. The deadline for receiving applications is on 4 May.
The training is based on UNESCO’s Manual for Developing Intercultural Competencies, which presents the Story Circles training methodology that enables participants to acquire strong skills for tolerance, empathy, critical thinking and listening for understanding. These are considered essential skills for young people within a global context where the ongoing global pandemic has deepened disparities and exposed the vulnerability of refugees, migrants, minorities and indigenous peoples.
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.
