CONNEXXIONS U40 Workshop, 7-9 November
This workshop, organised by the German Commission for UNESCO in partnership with the Anna Lindh Foundation and in cooperation with the Alexandria based NGO AGORA, aimed to strengthen the professional capacity of young experts in the field of culture and development. It offered medium- and long-term networking opportunities.
The workshop built on the results of the international conference “CONNEXXIONS” of September 2012 in Hammamet/Tunisia and on the activities of the U40 Network “Cultural Diversity 2030″. Cooperative examples of implementing the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions were presented and discussed.
Cultural experts and practitioners, civil society activists from Egypt, the Maghreb and the Mashrek region as well as experts from all world regions participated in the Alexandria workshop.
During this workshop, participants paved the ground for the regional U40 Network “U40 Arabesque”.
