Within the ALF Egyptian Intercultural Programme which aims to support local cultural initiatives and events as well as foster synergies with institutions, mobilising the civil society, and networking on a local level, the ALF Secretariat organised an event at its premises in Alexandria during the month of February 2023.
On 22-23 February, a two-day workshop brought together young people from the Eastern Mediterranean region in the framework of the "MED 2050" project jointly organised with Plan Bleu organisation in Marseille.
The objective of MED 2050 is to confront several visions of the future of the Mediterranean in 2050 and to co-construct solid and realistic transition paths toward common objectives of sustainable development. In the workshop, 30 young people from the ALF Networks in Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, and Jordan and a representation of young Syrian refugees in Egypt, discussed the possible developments in the Mediterranean region by 2050, leading collective reflection on 6 possible scenarios on the transition pathways to a desirable future in the Mediterranean:
- Inertia and marginalisation of the Mediterranean
- The shock of crises and forced adaptations
- Growth at all costs in an exploded Mediterranean
- Euro-Mediterranean partnership for a blue-green transition
- Another specifically Mediterranean sustainable development model
- The Mediterranean Sea: a world common good
