The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) is an inter-governmental organization that brings together all 28 countries of the European Union and 15 countries of the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean.

It does that with the aim of enhancing regional cooperation and dialogue in the Euro-Mediterranean region in order to collectively address three interrelated priorities: regional stability, human development, and integration.

Also, it was launched in July 2008.

However, comprising nearly 60 percent of the total population, young people constitute one of the greatest assets for stability and development in the Euro-Mediterranean region and play a significant role in energizing growth, poverty reduction, and societal well-being.

Moreso, their active participation in intercultural exchanges and dialogue is also essential, as young people are important ambassadors of the shared values that the UfM seeks to promote in both the northern and southern shores of the Mediterranean.
