Founded in 2004, the Anna Lindh Foundation is the largest network of civil society organisations and citizens, developed jointly by the European Union and its Euro-Mediterranean partner countries. It is active in more than 40 countries and has over 4,000 member organisations.
Giving young people a voice so that together we can build more open, inclusive, and resilient communities.
Fighting the lack of trust and intolerance so that our societies become more inclusive and empathetic.
Building a culture based on dialogue and exchange.
Les Nouveaux Disparus is a Belgian not-for-profit travelling theatre that has developed an extensive range of activities over the years. And what do they have in common? Their aim is to promote and implement cultural democracy.
Les Nouveaux Disparus has been the Head of the Belgian Network since 2019. Specifically, this means that it represents Belgium at the Foundation, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and at meetings and projects with other national networks. At a national level, it brings together and communicates with its members, initiates major projects every two years, provides support to its members and puts them in touch with international associations, for example.
The priority of Les Nouveaux Disparus is to maintain relations with the members of the network and to encourage exchanges with foreign organisations.
The Belgian network has several objectives that are directly related to the three main principles of the Foundation:
To promote trans-Mediterranean intercultural dialogue, in particular by participating in EuroMed projects.
To bring together and inspire other civil societies and therefore increase our impact, for example by linking up with the Foundation’s other networks.
To build capacity by canvassing new associations to become members of the Foundation and therefore best represent the diversity of civil society.
In order to keep the Belgian network thriving, Les Nouveaux Disparus is involved in a variety of activities. We create working groups to present and share objectives. We set up joint activities to involve as many member organisations as possible and promote synergy within the Foundation. We organise general assemblies. We set up communication tools (website, social networks, newsletters, etc.).
We want to develop, strengthen, and energise the Belgian network. To do this, we meet with our members and organise social events to get to know each other and share our news. We also continue to participate actively in the activities of the Anna Lindh Foundation, both internationally and in Belgium.
Do you want to meet up with and exchange ideas with other Belgian and Euro-Mediterranean associations? Then you are in the right place! Why not become a member of the network! Depending on your availability, you will be invited to participate in activities and projects of the ALF, to share information with members and partners, to get involved in working groups, and to participate in the general assembly, for example. Annual membership is free.
