The ACM will take part in the second edition of the Anna Lindh Forum
Marseilles, 4 – 7 April 2013
The Anna Lindh Mediterranean Forum is a unique gathering that brings together youth leaders and civil society organisations, in addition to influential policy-makers and intercultural experts from across the Euro-Mediterranean region. Convoked every three years by the Anna Lindh Foundation, our goal is to provide an innovative and participative space for debate, networking and good practice exchange on intercultural dialogue initiatives. We welcome unique perspectives, and the participation of people from diverse origins, cultures and beliefs who can turn new ideas into action following the Forum.
The second edition of the Anna Lindh Forum will take place from 4th to 7th April in the French city of Marseille, European capital of culture for 2013. In the new Mediterranean context, following historic Arab Awakening and the social impact of the economic crisis in Europe, the 2013 Forum will be a landmark event for re-launching dialogue at the regional level. More specifically, the Forum will be an opportunity to address the major Trends, Tensions and Transitions facing the Euro-Mediterranean societies, and for adapting intercultural dialogue as a tool for civic participation.
As with previous editions, the Forum 2013 agenda has been built from the ground through a series of preparation meetings involving Anna Lindh National Networks and civil society groups, on the themes of: ‘Youth’ (Istanbul); ‘Women’ (Casablanca); ‘Migration’ (Algeria); and ‘Media’ (Barcelona). The main formats of the Forum programme centre on: the AGORA (strategic debate and advocacy); the MEDINA (good practice and project ideas); and the INTERCULTURAL FAIR (networking and exchange).
