WORKSHOP: ‘Young Arab Voices’ – Promoting Citizenship Programmes in the Mediterranean

A workshop organised and facilitated by

Nelly Corbel, Lazord Foundation, Paris/Cairo

The aim of this workshop is to present hands on programmes born in the South Mediterranean targeting youth development, from core civic skills to employability and expanding across the Mediterranean region. These programmes and networks all have a proven track record of success in leveraging youth potential to integrate them as active citizens and professionals of their respective communities.

The workshop will present: the Lazord Fellowship, the Young Arab Voices, and the Education Handbook on Intercultural Citizenship in the Euro-Mediterranean. Upon a practice oriented presentation of these programmes, the floor will be open to the audience for exchanging around lessons learned, challenges and opportunities for developing civic engagement amongst youth in the region, giving space for other programmes present that day to share their experiences.
