Министры ЕС называют главным приоритетом усиление мобильности молодежи восточноевропейских стран


Повышение мобильности молодежи, молодых работников и молодежных организаций ЕС и стран Восточной Европы (Беларуси, Армении, Азербайджана, Грузии, Молдовы, Украины и России) должно быть главным приоритетом для Европейского Союза. Таков итог встречи министров ЕС, прошедшей в рамках заседания Совета по образованию, молодежной политике, культуре и спорту в Брюсселе 28-29 ноября. 
Заключения Совета по Программе повышения активности и мобильности молодежи восточноевропейских стран призывают ЕС к укреплению сотрудничества и улучшению качества мобильности, в частности, через Восточное партнерство (ВП) как «инициативы, имеющей стратегическое значение для стабильности и безопасности как восточноевропейских стран, участвующих в Европейской политике соседства, так и ЕС в целом».
 
В Заключениях также говорится, что «облегчение связей между людьми и укрепление диалога с гражданским обществом были определены в качестве важнейших элементов Партнерства между ЕС и Россией в интересах модернизации».
 
Заключения призывают ЕС к развитию сотрудничества и улучшению качества мобильности, в частности, в области неформального и официального образования и добровольческой деятельности. Для достижения этих задач Совет просит государства-члены ЕС активно участвовать в многосторонних платформах Восточного партнерства и отыскивать пути облегчения визового режима для молодежи из Восточной Европы.
На встрече министры выступили с предложением об укреплении и расширении на восточных соседей некоторых из существующих программ и инструментов ЕС по поддержке мобильности молодежи, в частности, программ «Молодежь в действии», «Непрерывное обучение», партнерства в молодежной сфере между ЕС и СЕ, включая Европейский центр знаний по молодежной политике, организацию SALTO (Поддержка дополнительного обучения и образовательных возможностей), сеть ресурсных центров, информационную систему Eurodesk и Европейский молодежный портал.
 
Совет предложил Комиссии:
  • поддержать и усилить восточноевропейскую тему в будущих молодежных программах ЕС;
  • воспитывать у молодежи дух сотрудничества между ЕС и странами Восточного партнерства в рамках молодежной программы ВП;
  • обновить Европейский молодежный портал, чтобы сделать его полезным и доступным для молодых людей изо всех уголков Европы, включая восточноевропейские страны;
  • изучить в пределах своей компетенции вопрос разработки европейской инициативы «Молодежь в движении» с тем, чтобы включить в нее молодых людей из стран Восточной Европы.

4th UNAOC Forum in Doha


PUTTING INTER-CULTURAL DIALOGUE AT THE HEART OF THE WORLD’S DEVELOPMENT AGENDA


From December 11th to 13th, world leaders and Civil Society organizations (around 2000 attendees) will join their efforts in Doha to make United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) 4th international forum a turning point, taking into account the past and current achievements in Madrid, Istanbul and Rio De Janeiro.
A turning point because of its particular format, as for the very first time in UNAOC’s existence, the Civil Society will actively contribute to the forum’s debates and outcomes (Doha Pre-Forum for Civil Society organized in May 2011 brought together 190 participants from 80 countries). A turning point also because at Doha, the UNAOC will anchor itself as the source of strong convictions and impactful actions that promote peace and development of societies through intercultural dialogue, evidenced by the Doha Forum’s baseline “Intercultural Dialogue to boost Development”.
As His Highness The Emir said during the UN General Assembly “(Qatar is) for the promotion of dialogue among cultures and civilizations“.

DOHA FORUM, INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE TO BOOST DEVELOPMENT


From its creation, UNAOC is guided by the hard work of his Group of Friends (around 130 States and organizations) and members of the High Level Group, to which the First Lady of Qatar, HH Sheikha Moza, has made major contributions. Indeed, it is Sheikha Moza’s involvement that led to the Forum’s 4th edition being held in Qatar. After Madrid, Istanbul and Rio De Janeiro, the UNAOC’s annual Forum in Doha will be a milestone in the UNAOC’s existence. In Qatar, the UNAOC will define the conditions that will allow global intercultural dialogue to emerge as a key driver for development, security and peace. The Doha Forum will indeed place culture at the heart of the world’s development agenda.
This ambitious positioning will have the added benefit of increasing synergies between the UNAOC’s mission and the Millennium Development Goals, for which HH Sheikha Moza is a vocal supporter. Reinforcing the cultural and intercultural approach in each of the MDGs can strengthen social cohesion and harmony, accelerate positive change and improve the sustainability of initiative.
“By hosting the Fourth Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations in Doha, our objective is to work closely with the UNAOC Secretary, the Member States and the Group of Friends to bring the achievement of the UNAOC and the Millenniums Development Goals together.” Says Dr Khalid Bin Mohamed Al-Attiyah, Qatar’s Minister of State for International Cooperation Transformational initiatives for a fast evolving world.
Under an impactful baseline – Doha Forum, Intercultural Dialogue to boost Development –the Qatari event will be punctuated during 3 days by debates, discussions and exchanges. The recent changes taking place in the Arab world have conducted the Qatar Committee for the UNAOC and the Alliance to make the Doha Forum a platform for the common values expressed during the so called “Arab Spring”.

BUILDING A LEGACY


The Doha Forum will build a results-oriented set of recommendations, by proposing a comprehensive and ambitious roadmap and by designing monitoring and impact assessment tools with political and corporate leaders, mayors, Civil Society representatives, Youth, journalists, Academics, Foundations, Intercultural Organizations and religious leaders (around 2000 attendees).

LEVERAGING QATAR CULTURAL VALUES AND HERITAGE WITHIN KATARA VILLAGE


The Cultural Village Foundation – Katara Village – is an exceptional project of hope and human interaction, a project made possible thanks to the vision, solid faith and renowned leadership of HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa AL THANI, Emir of the State of Qatar.
From December 10th to 13th, the 2000 Doha Forum attendees will have the opportunity to discover cultural attractions and cutting edge art and music through an Intercultural Festival specially created for the occasion.
And YSCD will participate in this event as a youth partner. See you in Doha!
