The Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue in the EuroMed region: 63 online events, 42 days

The Anna Lindh Foundation’s Media Company is promoting the “Virtual Marathon” for Dialogue in the EuroMed region, which takes place from the 19th of May to the 29th of June.

The Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue in the EuroMed region was designed to promote the Intercultural Dialogue as the way to build sustainable societies in the Euro-Mediterranean Region, in times when rethinking our development models became more urgent due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

The constructive approach at the base of the project materializes in a series of activities of the ALF civil society Network and partner organizations, associated with a series of Weekly Public Virtual Dialogues, all to be held till 29 June for a total of 42 days and 63 online events.

The Anna Lindh Foundation organized the initiatives to stimulate a broad  conversation and reflection on significant issues, to facilitate the exchange of perceptions and ideas, and to jointly address social and cultural challenges affecting societies of the Euro-Mediterranean region. The number of days, 42, is highly symbolic, being the length of a Marathon and the number of ALF members.

The first online event, “Generation #Insta: the new faces of positive social engagement in the Euro-Med,” targeted the modern pillars of ideas circulation: the new ways communication takes place in the third millennium and the forces behind positive social change, especially among youth actors. In recent years many have been examples of how web and social media helped to implement the positive influence by youth, both as individuals and through their involvement in institutions, organizations, movements, and non-formal groups.

The public event explored the new opportunities to open doors for young influencers in order to shape policy and media narratives and contribute to the Green Deal objectives towards the 2050 deal and digital transitions. Recommendations, suggestions, and action points were produced during the panels. The event was moderated by Aissam Benaissa (Connect NordAfrika).
