Maghreb Youth in Local Dialogue

The Anna Lindh Foundation has launched a call for participants for the training "Youth in Local Dialogue" aimed at increasing the capacities and participation of youth from the Maghreb countries.

The training, organised in the framework of Dawrak-Citizens for Dialogue Programme, will take place on 25 - 29 November 2013, in Marrakech, Morocco. It is addressed at youth between 20 and 35 years old from Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya as a response to the recent social, cultural, political changes in the Region.

"Youth in Local Dialogue" aims at contributing to the development of the know- how and the capacities of Youth and organisations working in the field of Youth participation in local development, through an exchange of good practices, and mechanisms of action.

This initiative arises from the need to include the youth in the development of their communities and in the decision making process in their local areas in the context of political and social transformations taking place in some of the Arab Mediterranean countries.

The deadline for application is Monday 7 October 2013. Filled application forms should be sent to [email protected]

DAWRAK-Citizens for Dialogue aims to build the capacities of CSOs and the most dynamic actors of change in the southern Mediterranean and provide them with tools and skills for dialogue, advocacy and networking, enabling them to contribute to developing a culture of citizenship and democratic participation.

The Anna Lindh Foundation for Inter-Cultural Dialogue promotes knowledge, mutual respect and inter-cultural dialogue between the people of the Euro-Mediterranean region, working through a network of more than 3,000 civil society organisations in 43 countries. Its budget is co-funded by the EU (€7 million) and the EU member states (€6 million).
