The third Young Med Voices Regional Leadership Seminar will take place online on 25-29 January 2021. The event will bring together over 25 emerging leaders from across the Euro-Mediterranean region, selected from an expanding resource pool of many hundreds of young debaters engaged in the Young Mediterranean Voices programme.

Over the course of five days, trainees will have unique access to experienced global leaders, EU policy-makers, media mentoring, and influential peer networks from politics, business and civil society, with the overall aim to expand their capacity for positively shaping policy and media narratives.

The Seminar will provide a space for cross-cultural interaction and dialogue among young leaders, as well as transferring the experience of current and former leaders through a constructive safe digital space. It will tackle three main Sustainable Development Goals (SGDGs), paving the way for participants to reflect on them, inspired by their personal experiences within their home countries and societies.

The general public will be able to attend two public sessions on 28 and 29 January. These workshops will be livestreamed on the programme’s Facebook channel @YoungMediterraneanVoices.

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.
