We are pleased to announce that Fondazione Santagata has become a member of the Anna Lindh Foundation Network. The organisation is committed to fostering intercultural dialogue within its mission of nurturing face-to-face collaboration and interdisciplinary solutions.

Among ALF opportunities, we successfully applied to ALF in Motion, a programme powered by the Anna Lindh Foundation to unite Intercultural Dialogue leaders and empower Civil Society Entities to tackle pressing challenges.
The ALF in Motion programme financially supports representatives from across the Mediterranean, promoting face-to-face collaboration and interdisciplinary solutions.

Within this context, we have been selected to participate in a joint mobility programme with the Conservation and Development of City Values Association of İzmir: our partners will host one of our team members to exchange knowledge and expertise about our respective jobs and cultures. The designed initiative has the potential to significantly contribute to youth empowerment, cultural management and preservation practices and sustainable solutions within the project design process, while fostering mutual understanding and strengthening the bilateral cooperation between both our organisations and our countries.
