Like every year on 22 March, Interreg NEXT MED Programme is happy to celebrate the World Water Day to highlight the crucial importance of water in the Mediterranean and the extreme urgency to address the more pressing challenges in the field.

In line with the current focus of Interreg NEXT MED on youth (youth-oriented projects will be funded within the framework of the first call for proposals up to a amount of over 19 million euros), in 2024, the Programme will put the Mediterranean young people in the heart of its World Water Day celebration through a short online event providing the perfect space for our younger generations to discuss both the challenges and the solutions to water issues.

The results of the debate will allow Interreg NEXT MED to better understand what the expectations and the points of view of the youth regarding water are, that can widely differ from those of the previous generations. This is particularly important in view of designing the second call for proposals of the Programme to focus on the green transition in the Mediterranean.

The event is co-organized with EU Neighbours South and several EU JEEL Connectors will be involved directly in the moderation. EU JEEL Connectors is a network of young individuals across the Southern Neighbourhood region, led by inspiring young changemakers from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.

Join us on Friday 22 March 2024 from 10 to 11.30 AM (Central European Time) and help us define the way water challenges should be addressed in the near future!
