We give a voice to young people to promote new narratives and contribute to a culture of understanding, peace and dialogue
This programme creates spaces for intercultural encounters between young people in order to promote exchanges of experiences and ideas between peers, identify shared values in the region and transcend those stereotypes that tear us apart. By doing so, it aims to equip young people with tools so they can play a relevant role in future societies and actively promote the values of diversity and co-existence in the Euro-Mediterranean area. It features the youth contest “A Sea of Words”, organised in collaboration with the Anna Lindh Foundation and its national networks.

Artificial Intelligence and Youth: Ethical Commitment and Critical Thinking
In the 16th edition of the literary contest “A Sea of Words” we invite young European and Mediterranean youths to write a story about the impact of artificial intelligence on their societies, placing special emphasis on the dilemmas in terms of values and ethical criteria that it raises its use and how to promote talent and creativity in the face of instrumentalization and manipulation.
