The Young Mediterranean Voices “Virtual” Euro-Med Debate and Policy Forum will take place from 30 September to 5 October, 2020. The event is organised by the Anna Lindh Foundation in partnership with the Center for Mediterranean Integration and the British Council, with the support of the European Union.
The Forum will bring together young leaders from across the two shores of the Mediterranean, trained in policy debate and active civil society players, for a unique programme of online intercultural debates, policy roundtables, networking sessions and virtual exchange. Policy recommendations will be captured and presented as the main output to decision-makers in a culminating High Level policy dialogue session on 5 October.
The occasion represents a central contribution from young people of the Euro-Mediterranean region to lead and drive the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development. The motions of the debates will be connected to key SDGs, in particular linked to education and digitalisation, climate action, economic growth and employment.
Young Mediterranean voices is the flagship debate and Dialogue programme connecting civil society, education and policy-makers across the southern Mediterranean and Europe. The programme provides a pioneering platform to open doors for young influencers to shape policy and media narratives. It is grounded on the positive experience of Young Arab Voices launched in 2011 by the Anna Lindh Foundation and British Council and it benefits from the support of the European Union.
