The Young Mediterranean Voices programme is organising a month-long, region-wide initiative of debate competitions and national dialogue forums in October-November in 8 Southern Mediterranean countries. More than 800 young people will be involved in the NDFs taking place across Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia.

The National Debate Forums (NDFs) are youth-led debate tournaments enhanced to include debate motions directly linked to national and regional policy agendas, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In Morocco, the NDF took place on 24-26 October at Center of Trainings & National Meetings in Rabat, bringing together young debaters from across the country.

These 3-day Forums are the culmination of the ‘Young Mediterranean Voices’ programme, funded by the European Commission and co-funded by the Government of Finland, World Bank Group and the British Council.

The NDFs represent a central contribution of Mediterranean youth to lead and drive the 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development. An affiliated region-wide campaign under the title of: #YoungMedVoices2030, has been launched to empower Mediterranean youth in accelerating the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
