MENA Leadership Academy - Regional Programme Political Dialogue and regional Integration in the Southern Mediterranean
The third session of the MENA Leadership Academy on "Local Politics and Local Governance" took place from 2 to 8 April in Spain. During the training days in Sevilla, the nineteen young active leaders from the MENA region learned how to design and implement public policies at the local level. The program was complemented through several field visits and speakers’ interventions in Sevilla and Cordoba. These allowed the participants to discover different ways of how civil society organizations can collaborate with local administration.
During the training the group of young leaders representing different civil society organizations also presented their projects in the fields of municipalities, youth councils, culture and social entrepreneurship. Through the previous trainings in the framework of the MENA Leadership Academy, the participants had been encouraged and guided in their efforts of designing and implementing activities at the regional level in order to create a positive impact on the development of their societies.
