The Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) will be cooperating with Plan Bleu to co-organise the MED 2050 workshop on the Future of the Mediterranean in Alexandria, Egypt, on 22 and 23 February 2023.
MED 2050 is an ambitious foresight exercise designed as an original science-policy interface, aiming at mobilizing decision-makers and stakeholders from the North and South of the Mediterranean, going beyond geographical and institutional borders.
Its goal: confront several possible visions of the Mediterranean future by 2050 (with an intermediate step at 2030) and co-construct solid and grounded transition paths towards common goals.
ALF launched a call for participation to target youth from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria, aged 18 to 30 and who are interested in climate change, environment and development in the Mediterranean.
The cost of travel, accommodation and meals for the selected participants will be covered by Plan Bleu.
Interested candidates have to fill in the application form in the link below, before December 17:
Please note that the best candidates will be selected to participate in the workshop according to their knowledge, background and geographic and gender balance.
Below is a brief on the theme of the workshop:
Participants will be invited to discuss the below six scenarios describing possible futures for the Mediterranean and to reflect on transitions paths:
Scenario 1: Inertia and marginalization of the Mediterranean
Scenario 2: Shock of crises and forced adaptations
Scenario 3: Growth at all costs in a fragmented Mediterranean
Scenario 4: Euro-Mediterranean partnership for a blue-green transition
Scenario 5: Another specifically Mediterranean sustainable development model
Scenario 6: The Mediterranean Sea: a global common good.
