The Forum on Solidarity and Peace in the Mediterranean
to be Held in Tarragona, Spain (October 18 and 19, 2017)
The City of Tarragona (close to Barcelona, Spain) will host a forum on October 18 and 19 this year, in collaboration with the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) and the Catalan chapter of Mayors for Peace, within the framework of the XVIII Mediterranean Games taking place in Tarragona from June 22 to July 1, 2018.
The aim of this forum is for mayors from all over the world to meet with civil society benchmarks, international organizations and peace leaders by opening a process of debate and reflection about today's Mediterranean drama, the need to turn into a space for solidarity, cooperation and equality and how the Olympic movement, vector of peace and dialogue between cultures, could contribute to improving this situation.
Coinciding with this forum, a Mayors for Peace meeting will take place on October 18 in the Plenary Chamber of the Tarragona City Hall. The meeting will be open to all member cities from the network.
The list of speakers and schedule will be available at the registration website, which will open soon.
