The Anna Lindh Network of Luxembourg and the Greater Region currently welcomes around 30 Member Organisations from within and around Luxembourg. Members consist primarily of associations and civil society organisations active in the fields of intercultural dialogue, culture, active citizenship, youth, inclusion, and informal education. The network also includes high schools, educational foundations, and institutions founded by municipalities.
The network meets around every two months, organising capacity building events for civil society, intercultural public dialogues, transnational cooperation projects, youth exchanges, and cultural events. Members mutually support one another in their activities and design new joint projects in the field of intercultural dialogue. Members also aim to strengthen cooperation between all networks of the Anna Lindh Foundation by designing and implementing projects which benefit from transnational cooperation.
