October 1, 2017 - November 1, 2017


Event Navigation

Twelve emerging leaders from Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the State of Palestine, and Tunisia will travel from October 1st to October 18th to the United States, Germany, France, and Spain. Then, twelve emerging leaders from Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovak Republic, the United Kingdom and the United States, will travel from October 15th to November 1st to Spain, Morocco, Egypt and Qatar. Both groups will meet in Madrid, Spain for two days.

During their respective trip, besides addressing issues related to intercultural dialogue, both cohorts will also take part in activities and discussions focusing on a secondary theme: “The role of media and civil society in combatting hatred and fostering inclusion”. This theme has been chosen to ensure that the programme has a concrete impact on the ground, while serving UNAOC mission to foster intercultural collaborations. The choice of such theme has also framed the selection process and participants from both group are all involved professionally in the field of media and/or civil society.
