The Council of Europe’s youth sector has an outstanding tradition of promoting intercultural dialogue and including the points of view of young people from across the globe in its activities, be them organised at the European youth centres or supported by the European Youth Foundation.

Intercultural Dialogue provides the framework for cooperation with neighbouring regions, especially the South Mediterranean and Arab region, while placing emphasis on the role of intercultural dialogue for managing diversity within each society.

The activities within the cooperation includes the Euro-Arab Youth Forums, Training Courses, Mediterranean university organised in cooperation with the North South Centre and national level support to youth initiatives for Euro-Arab cooperation.
