Strengthening Euro-Mediterranean multicultural background. Insight from the Intercultural Trends Report by the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF)
23 September 2021, at 3.00 pm – 5 pm CEST
The promotion of the intercultural dialogue and cross-border cooperation within the Mediterranean region is at the heart of UNIMED, the Anna Lindh Foundation and the Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation daily work. One more time, recent events acted as a reminder for favouring and promoting mutual understanding. Dialogue is a permanent need for a better living together and this webinar, organized in collaboration with the Anna Lindh Foundation and the Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation modestly seeks to contribute to this common goal. It will be the occasion to learn some key findings of the new edition of the Anna Lindh Foundation Report on Intercultural Trends and Social changes, to get some hints for enhancing Euro-Mediterranean cooperation and understand how culture is a powerful tool for strengthening the dialogue.
