After three years, the Young Mediterranean Voices programme has come to an end. Despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, the programme has continued to demonstrate the determination and potential of the Euro-Med youth, showing great debating and intercultural dialogue skills.
From 2018 till 2021 over 9,400 debaters participated across the eight MENA countries and the programme reached more than 13,000 beneficiaries.
“Young Mediterranean Voices” is the flagship intercultural dialogue EU-funded programme pioneered across the Southern Mediterranean region and Europe. It is built on a pioneering theory of change that transforms youth-led debate to policy action for inclusive societies.
The programme provides young women and men with a unique opportunity to:
• develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking and cultural intelligence through debate training and leadership;
• facilitate constructive online engagement and participate in intercultural debate groups through virtual exchanges;
• access a far-reaching network of experienced leaders, mentors and partner institutions working across the globe.
