Anna Lindh Foundation

The Anna Lindh Foundation facilitates and supports the action of civil society of the Euro-Mediterranean Region in priority fields which affects the capacity for individuals and groups to share values and live together.

The programme of the Foundation is focused on activities in fields which are essential for human and social dialogue:

• Education and Youth;
• Culture and Arts;
• Cities and Migration;
• Values, Religion and Spirituality;
• Peace and Co-existence;
• Media.

Aware of the necessity of a scientific and social assessment on the challenges of intercultural dialogue in the Union for the Mediterranean, the ALF also assumes a monitoring task on the evolution of values and intercultural trends in the Region.

Facilitating actions in the field

In each of its priority fields, the Foundation develops large-scale programmes in collaboration with international partners, and grants support for projects which bring together members of its 43 Civil Society Networks through its open Calls for Proposals.

The Foundation also facilitates the development of common actions and projects between its members at the national or regional level, and supports local activities aimed at promoting intercultural dialogue between people at the grass-root level.

Launching region-wide campaigns

The ALF launches region-wide initiatives involving its Networks in the model of “1001 Actions for Dialogue” (2008) and “Restore the Trust, Rebuild Bridges” (2009), as well as gathering more than 700 people in Barcelona for the very first Anna Lindh Forum (2010).

Long-term international and regional partners of the ALF include the United Nations Alliance of Civilisations, the League of Arab States, the Council of Europe, UNESCO, ALECSO, ISESCO, EMUNI and the Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Assebly.
