A new significant international recognition reinforces the international role of Rondine. The selection of the project Mediterranean. Frontier of Peace among the 80 finalists of the Paris Peace Forum, the event promoted by President Macron that will take place in Paris from 11 to 13 November 2021. This project is supported by the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI) and implemented by Rondine Cittadella della Pace in collaboration with the Italian Caritas.
“Mediterranean. Frontier of Peace” has been selected under the category “Covid-19: mitigate the socio-economic impact of the crisis” for its ability to generate impact in the south-eastern area of the Mediterranean: Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.
The project consists of a biennial program for 11 young people from communities in the south-eastern Mediterranean area that are characterized by situations of conflict, tension and lack of socio-economic development. The program comprehends four components: learning, training, cohabitation, and social impact. The participants are currently refining their proposals for recovery projects to be implemented in their local communities.
In its fourth edition, Paris Peace Forum will offer a platform for projects and initiatives devoted to creating peace in the future and will once again host world leaders and heads of international organizations as well as leaders from the civil society and the private sector, and as well as thousands of individuals from around the globe, with the aim of strengthening innovative forms of collective action.
