Presentation of the first data of the new report “Intercultural Trends and Social Change in the Euro-Mediterranean Region”. The new data in this report launches the need for civil society to seek mechanisms that contribute to improve mutual perceptions and ecoexistence for the creation of democratic, inclusive and sustainable societies.

It is found that problems persist within countries around polarization, mistrust, youth unemployment and, in some cases, incitement to hatred. Social changes related to migration, increasing digital connectivity, climate change and, as witnessed during the current COVID-19 pandemic, health, are interconnected and global in nature. Dialogue and intercultural cooperation remain key to navigating this changing world, and reliable data remains essential to understand and address social problems in the Euro-Mediterranean.

This is followed by the debate between 4 young people between 18 and 30 years of age, who hold a public office or an organic position within a political party, regarding their proposals for the kind of society we want to create after the pandemic.

Finally, a Structured Dialogue session begins between the debaters and the young people who attended the debate to exchange ideas and thoughts.
