Within the ALF Egyptian Intercultural Programme which aims to support local cultural initiatives and events as well as fostering synergies with institutions, mobilising the civil society and networking on a local level, the ALF Secretariat organised several events at its premises in Alexandria during the month of June.
On 26 and 27 June, the ALF Secretariat co-organised the “Blue Future Camp” bringing together 32 youth from 4 Mediterranean cities in Egypt (Arish, Port Said, Marsa Matruh, and Alexandria). Participants were given the opportunity to engage in group discussions, participate in activities, and hear from a variety of speakers from Egypt and France. The Camp is part of the “Blue Future” project offering solutions in the environmental field through research, action, and building a common discourse against sea pollution.
