MEDITER-Women for Change is a biennial project funded by the EuropeAid Cooperation
Office, which manages the external cooperation programs of the EU.

The overall objective of the project MEDITER - Women for Change aims to strengthen women's
leadership within local authorities and NGOs and, through them, to provide an appropriate
response to the economic, political and cultural risks of marginalism in the Mediterranean
region, one of the strategic areas of European gravity.

Indirectly, the project aims to reduce the risk of crises (economic, political and social) in
the Mediterranean, through the strengthening of women's representation in the areas of
administrative hierarchy and decision-making positions within the local authorities and NGOs.

To achieve these objectives, the project aims in particular to achieve the following two specific

1. To increase the preparation level and the access to decision-making positions of women
by developing an ongoing program of higher education for women-manager of local
authorities and NGOs.

2. To encourage a permanent exchange between women-manager of public and nonprofit
sectors on subjects of common interest, through the creation of a thematic network
dedicated to the development of cultural policies.

Under the second goal, in January 2011 the network MEDITER - Euro-Mediterranean Network
for cooperation has been created.
