Through its annual cycle of meetings at national, regional and European levels, as well as virtual tools and spaces on key themes for the Euro-Mediterranean region, the project aims to mobilize civil society as well as other key players in the field/ region, such as social movements, youth organizations, etc. so that they can actively engage in a regional, structured dialogue with EU institutions during the annual civil society forum in Brussels.
Actions in brief
Being designed and implemented by the Civil Society for the Civil Society, the project is conceived as an inclusive and participatory bottom-up process. Each year, through an annual cycle of activities, civil society organisations will gather to discuss and exchange on 5 themes that are central for the relations between the EU and countries in the region (Governance and Rule of Law, security and countering violence, migration, economic and social dialogue, social and climate justice). The results of these discussions will be brought from the field into structured (policy) dialogues with the European Union.Print pdf
