In the framework of the 25th Celebration of the Barcelona Process and following the large mobilization made by the ALF community in preparation of MEDForum 2020, which had to be cancelled due to the outburst of COVID19, the ALF has adapted to the needs of the times: it brings together more than 3,000 civil society organizations, institutions, governments, local and regional decision-makers, entrepreneurs, young people, the media and academia in an unprecedented, large scale virtual event: the Anna Lindh Virtual Marathon for Dialogue.
It will take place during 42 days, from the 19th of May to the 29th of June 2021.
The aim of the Virtual Marathon is to highlight the importance of Intercultural Dialogue to build sustainable societies in the EuroMed Region. During the virtual Marathon, gender will be considered a cross-cutting issue to take into account.
The series of events represents a landmark gathering that aims to accelerate and scale up the impact of intercultural action, especially in view of the “Renewed Partnerships with the Southern Neighbourhood: a new agenda for the Mediterranean”; endorsed by the Council of the European Union.
