12 Months on...

Protests in Morrocco

Its been over 12 months since the Anna Lindh Foundation's forum in Barcelona. A lot has changed in the Euromed region since then. We have seen unprecedented civil action across the region demanding change and getting it. We have since changes from Egypt to Morrocco. Some of it has been fought for, some of it has been Governments recognising they need to change. 

With all this change, Anna Lindh have organised this Exchange Forum to bring around 200 people from across the region. This is to share, learn and move forward. 

I am looking forward to this. The changes we have seen have witnessed the change in use of media, with protests and movements organising across social media. We have seen change in the use of the arts, with poets and artists using their talents to press for change. 

This year Civil Society has been at the forefront. All those involved in Civil Society have lots to learn and share and of course network. Lots of possible partnerships will also have a chance to be made in Tunisia. 

This forum will also give us the opportunity to look back at the last year and see the changes that have happened and we as civil society can influence further changes in our own countries.

This forum gives people like me the opportunity to learn at first hand how these events have changed how things are done in the Euromed. How technology has shaped it and helped. How the arts have been used as a tool for protest and change. And how the people and civil society reacted. 

Personally I cannot wait.
