I – Context

The regional flagship Networks of Mediterranean Youth Project – NET-MED Youth (2014-2018) stems from a strategic UNESCO/EU partnership for the Southern Mediterranean region. It aims at improving the access and effective participation of young women and men in designing national youth strategies and policies including by: (i) building the capacities of and enhancing networking among youth organizations, (ii) increasing their effective interaction with the media and their use of ICT-enabled platforms, (iii) developing their skills and facilitating transition towards the labour market. So far, the Project has initiated 7 pro-active youth networks reaching out to over 4.000 young women and men, advanced the participatory formulation of national youth policies and strategic local plans in 7 countries, developed a large body of knowledge and resources on youth needs, aspirations, representation in media and employment.

In line with UNSCR 2250 and as part of UNESCO’s and the EU’s commitment to engaging youth and regional institutions in protecting and safeguarding their tangible and intangible cultural heritage and promoting cultural diversity as a vital element of preventing prevent violent extremism, the NET-MED Youth Project launches a Call for Action targeting youth civil society organizations from southern Mediterranean countries. This new initiative will build on the regional conference “Cultural Heritage and Identity: An Arab youth perspective”, held in Tunisia, in March 2017, during which participants discussed endangered cultural heritage in the region, highlighting themes of peace building, dialogue and cohesion. Participants formulated 10 operational recommendations as well as pilot initiatives focusing on youth involvement in the context of rising threats, leveraging cultural heritage as a resource for youth entrepreneurship and development. Finally, this initiative will also build on the dynamics of UNESCO’s international #Unite4Heritage campaign, which involved several NET-MED Youth networks from the Mediterranean region.
