Anna Lindh Israeli Network Vision

The Israeli Anna Lindh Network seeks to promote collaboration, emphasizing dialogue and open discourse within Israel and across the Anna Lindh Foundation's participating countries in Europe and the MENA region. Rooted in our vision, the network has identified priorities 1) interreligious and intercultural dialogue, 2) active citizenship, and 3) gender, through a consultative process to guide our future operations. These priorities underscore our commitment to strengthening and empowering civil organizations within the network, fostering a cohesive community of organizations that collectively shape Israeli and global society.
