At times characterized by a global pandemic, the Anna Lindh Foundation together with the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED) organised the first virtual Intercultural Trends and Media Platform called: “Feeling connected during the crisis – media narratives of the Euro-Mediterranean”, on the 9th of June from 11:30 -13:00 CEST.

The meeting was conceived as a space for a facilitated debate between journalists, academia and civil society to exchange reflections on the way media productions, cross-cultural reporting and mutual perceptions are changing as a result of the current crisis in the Euro-Mediterranean region and to share ideas on what could be done to minimize the negative consequences of the current crisis on intercultural exchanges and dialogue

The outcomes of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform were fed into the broader process of reflection carried out in 2020 on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Barcelona Process/EuroMed Partnership (launched in 1995) and in view of further strengthening cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
