What is mobility for you? How could the movement and flows of people help moving towards a shared citizenship?

If you are between 18 and 30, and from the Euro-Mediterranean region, contribute to the reflection by writing a short story. Take part in “A Sea of Words” literary contest and send your submission before 25 June.

The authors of the 10 best texts will be invited to Barcelona on 30 November in the framework of the Mediterranean Day, to participate for 3 days in the awards ceremony, creative workshops and cultural exchanges. Their works will also be published in a book.

A Sea of Words contest was launched in 2008 by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) in collaboration with the Anna Lindh Foundation. This initiative gathers the voices of young people, essential agents of change, about social, cultural, economic or political dialogue topics that prompts the 1995 Barcelona Declaration.
