Alliance of Civilizations : "Restore Trust, Rebuild Bridges" project


This cluster of projects was jointly developed by the Alliance and the Anna Lindh Foundation on the basis of proposals put forward by partner organizations in the wake of the Gaza crisis in order to help restore trust in Euro-Mediterranean dialogue and rebuild human and cultural bridges among societies in the region. It comprises a cluster of projects, including a Media-oriented rapid response mechanism to intercultural crises in the Euro-Mediterranean region, a cycle of international seminars on dialogue among the civilizations of the Mediterranean presented by the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED), a workshop on conflict transformation for intercultural dialogue and overcoming hatred, as well as a Peace camp (both proposed by the Council of Europe), a sminar on Jerusalem as a city of coexistance among monotheistic religions with participants coming from both shores of the Mediterranean (OIC), a training activity in capacity building addressed to Palestinian civil society institutions working in the fields of youth and culture (OIC) and an Intercultural Vademecum (UNESCO) comprising several building blocks.
