Anna Lindh Foundation seeks youth activists for its 2013 Forum meeting on youth

The Anna Lindh Foundation has launched a call for participation for members of its national networks in the build-up to the "Anna Lindh Forum 2013” for a preparatory meeting focused on Youth.
The meeting will be organised in Istanbul, Turkey, from 28 June to 1 July 2012 with the aim of contributing to the formulation, development and implementation of the Programme of the ALF Forum 2013 by articulating a Youth Perspective on broad social, cultural, economic and political challenges in the Euro-Mediterranean context in the wake of the major changes experienced by the region.
In the framework of the Foundation’s ‘4D’ strategy (Development, Dialogue, Diversity and Democracy), the meeting will seek to identify thematic priorities for action through the Intercultural Dialogue approach in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
The Pre-Forum Youth Preparatory Meeting will gather around 45 participants from the Euro-Mediterranean region with experience in the fields of Development, Dialogue, Diversity and Democracy. Around ten of them will come from Turkey as host country of the meeting. Participants will not necessarily be experts on the thematic axis of the meeting, but youth activists with grass-root experience working in the field of youth, preferably in relation to some of the thematic axis. The working languages will be English and French.
The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday 23 of May 2012.
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).
