Anna Lindh Foundation

The Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) is an intergovernmental institution that brings together civil society organisations and citizens from both sides of the Mediterranean to build trust and improve mutual understanding.


Celebrating the Mediterranean

In September 2022 the Anna Lindh Foundation launched a call for participation for the #CelebratingTheMediterranean. The idea was to celebrate the Mediterranean trough concerts that took place simultaneously in 25 countries around the world.
Our member Voem won the project and presented Belgium. Thanks to VOEM for the organization of this event. Thanks to the groups Wird and Wishah. Thanks to Ras El Hanout Asbl for hosting the event in Brussels!
