The deadline for registering is the 22nd ofAugust. More info on the text below.
After a careful analysis of needs and constraints facing Youth and governments following protests and uprisings currently expressed in different forms, it has become obvious that the citizen participation in political life in general, and democratic processes in particular, has to be increased in each country of the South and Eastern Mediterranean. Aware of this need, ALDA’s partner in this project, the J.I.D association proposed to increase and reinforce the participation of youth of civil societies in the decision-making process in the Mediterranean countries. This project will enable Youth to exchange their experience and discuss effective ways in order to increase social inclusion and promote inter-institutional dialogue.
The project would gather Youth from Tunisia, Lebanon, Egypt, France and Italy. Each group involved is expected to produce proposals and final returns, which would help to establish a detailed plan for youth cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean area. Participants will work during workshops, seminars and roundtables and a final conference will be devoted for the presentation of the outcome of the workshops and the final statements.
The project will last 5 days – three days of work and two day in travel from the 1st to 5th September – and the schedule will be as follow:
1st day: arrival and welcoming of guests/ welcoming dinner
2nd day: breakfast/presentation of the different associations/lunch/workshops/Dinner/food and drinks party (we will be asked to bring some of your traditional food and cloths)
