The event will bring together communication specialists, policy-makers, academics and representatives of cities affiliated with the MC2CM network and city associations with an expressed interest in the project and facing similar issues in communicating on migration and diversity. The event will see the participation and intervention of cities from the Euro-Mediterranean region, academics and communication experts.
All participants are invited to engage proactively in the discussion and reflect upon the drafting of recommendations and actions.
Working languages for the event are English, French and Arabic (interpretation). Discussions will take place under Chatham House rule (comments are not attributed) with a report produced as summary of learnings of the event.
While MC2CM normally host face to face peer-learning meeting, this event will have to adapt to the current pandemic situation. Therefore, the event will be held online as a Digital peer-learning week, translating the 2 days face-to-face event into a 4 days (1 session of 2h per day) online event.
However, the online setting will follow the same rules of selection and engagement as the face to face meeting, meaning that the event will be reserved to around 30 selected participants (based on the pertinence of their profiles, gender and geographical balance among others).
Participants will be required to commit participating actively to the 4 days, making sure the learning and recommendations extract from this meeting are based on practionners needs, experiences and knowledge.
