  1. Citizen initiatives day:

This event – a beacon, symbolic and unifying of the concrete commitment of young people – took the form of a day of educational cleaning of beaches, on April 27, 2019 , simultaneously in many Mediterranean countries. On this occasion, youth initiatives were presented, already existing or developed during workshops during the months of March an
d April. This action is not an end in itself it is a pretext for discussion, awareness, learning skills, the experience of interculturality for young people. In the end, this media day is intended to become the "day of citizen engagement of young people in the Mediterranean", and will be a new step towards the representation of youth in the Mediterranean.
