2016 (EN)

Dear Friends,

The events of the last few days, the recent attacks in Kabul, Nice, Monaco, Dhaka and so on for a long list all call even more to strengthen those essential initiatives that can promote mutual understanding and mutual respect: on this subject, I have sent you a letter this morning to all the bodies of the Anna Lindh Foundation (all. 1).

There are two important events involving the Italian Network in this second part of 2016:

  • The ALF FORUM in Malta at the end of October 2016 (the first working document I received in the last few days from the ALF Secretariat – all. 2).
  • The General Assembly of the ITALIAN ALF NETWORK to be held in the 4th quarter of 2016. In this regard, in accordance with the agreement stipulated for Step 7 (2015-2017) between the Lead Partner (Mediterranean Foundation) and the ALF, a Comité de Pilotage (consisting of 9 people, 5 of whom are women and 5 young people) is to be set up in order to assist the Lead Partner in the organisation and organisation of the General Assembly and in the activities for the development of the planning capacity planned immediately prior to the Assembly (I had already given my information on this subject).
  • Awaiting to let you know within a short time the OdG and the dates of the General Assembly, also after the outcome of the Executive Committee's indications, and to send you the annual News Letter, as provided for in Step 7 "Invitation to submit an application" for the Pilotage Committee as described above, in accordance with the directives contained in the "invitation to apply" (all. 3).
