On 15 March, has begun the regional Common Action “ Rethink, Reconnect the Med “, launched by the EU-Programme Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality, involving 29 young leaders working together in local, twinning or cross-border initiatives to raise awareness on, develop and apply critical thinking tools.
It is recalled that this Common Action was designed by young leading activists, through a process of capacity building, debate and collaborative work on developing critical thinking tools, on the occasion of a Med Dialogue Leaders Bootcamp held from 29 January to 2 February 2022 in Valencia.
Namely, “Rethink, Reconnect the Med” Common Action embodies the far-reaching power of youth, when they move as one “critical mass” to address common policy challenges across the Mediterranean region and Europe. Accordingly, it promotes the use and development of a critical thinking approach in their communities when addressing issues that they care about.
Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality is a 3-year (2019 – 2022) EU-funded Technical Assistance regional Programme with the overall objective to strengthen the role of CSOs active at the regional scale, in building sustainable development, regional cohesion and social resilience, as well as in influencing policy-making in the Southern Neighborhood and the Euro-Mediterranean Space.
