Deadline: June 15, 2017
Take part in a unique exchange opportunity in the Euro-Med Region! The Euro-Med Exchange Programme is giving young talents and key actors, such as members of civil society organisations, exchange/traineeship opportunities across 42 Euro-Mediterranean countries, aiming to support knowledge exchange, strengthen dialogue and intercultural cooperation that are crucial for the stable and sustainable development in the Region. The programme is designed to support synergies, cross-disciplinary activities and innovative project ideas related to intercultural dialogue (ICD), involving young actors from both shores of the Mediterranean, giving them the spaces to gain new perspectives on how to drive positive change.
The EuroMed Exchange Programme is working on two modalities:
- Twinning Exchange: An organisation can send an ICD Actor and host another ICD Actor. The organisations have to be in different countries. The exchanges don’t need to take place at the same time.
- Sending Exchange: An organisation can send an ICD Actor to be hosted by another organisation. The organisations have to be in different countries.
Priority will be given to North-South twinning exchanges between members and between members & non-members. However, South-South and West-East (Europe) patterns will also be supported.
Duration of the Traineeship
- The duration of the exchange/traineeship service varies between a minimum of 30 days and the maximum of 90 days with no possibility for extension. It is possible to apply for 30, 45, 60, 75 or 90 days;
- The traineeship service cannot start before June 15, 2017 and cannot go beyond September 30, 2017;
