The Anna Lindh Foundation has published a Handbook on Intercultural Citizenship Education in the Euro-Mediterranean region, described as “a unique resource for educators, schools, civil society, governments, youth, and citizens at large for strengthening awareness around the common values among the people of the region”.

The Handbook has been developed by a multi-country group of authors and through a regional consultation among a group of around 300 educators. It includes an introduction to the concepts of education to diversity, intercultural interaction and proactive citizenship building, to the methodologies and education formats related to intercultural citizenship, as well as learning activities to enhance the knowledge and practices of intercultural citizenship.

The Handbook is a resource that can be used over a number of pedagogical sessions, or from which educators can extract content according to their set learning objectives.

The Anna Lindh Intercultural Citizenship Education Handbook is the basic resource for a pilot capacity-building programme initiated by Anna Lindh Foundation to constitute a first Euro-Mediterranean pool of trainers in the field of Intercultural Citizenship Education. Currently the pool of 30 trained educators are engaged in the organisation of training activities on the topic of intercultural citizenship education, accompanied by a group of mentors supporting them at each stage of implementation.
