The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) hosted the Regional Conference “Shared Views on key issues in the Mediterranean” on 22-23 May in Barcelona. More than 100 representatives of the civil society and youth organisations were brought together to discuss how to best address environmental, educational, societal and economic challenges faced by the Euro-Mediterranean region and propose recommendations to foster more aligned cooperation amongst the region’s countries.

The discussions held during the Regional Dialogue and the recommendations and project proposals drawn from the exchanges will feed the UfM Strategy for Youth and will also be presented as suggestions and project proposals to contribute to the Marseille Summit of the Two Shores (24 June 2019) by putting forward the views of youth and civil society of all UfM countries on key priorities for the region.

Exchanges over the course of the two-day forum served to establish the following action areas: Environment, Water, Energy and Sustainable development; Youth Employment and Social economy and inclusion of youth and women; Rethinking Education.
