The chairperson of Mirsal ry, Sandra Imran Alsouse participated in Med Dialogue Leaders Bootcamp 3 on “Developing critical thinking tools”, which was held in Valencia, Spain, from Saturday 29 of January to Wednesday the 2nd of February 2022.
More than 520 applicants applied to participate in this bootcamp, but only 28 applicants were selected, and our chairperson was one of them.
Through a series of insight sessions and working groups, the objective of this Bootcamp was to equip participants from the Euro-med space, with core skills around critical-thinking, problem-assessment and fact-checking. At the same time, they were invited to perform open-mindedness, and challenge stereotypes, propaganda and misinformation. Communicating effectively and exchanging with others were also at the core of the training sessions.
Activities of the bootcamp
During the bootcamp, Med Dialogue Leaders from the Euro-med space had the opportunity to learn in-depth about critical thinking different aspects at a theoretical and practical level. Furthermore, they were divided into thematic groups on gender-equity, art, culture, social transformation, disinformation, and fake_news, sustainably, etc, according to their projects. This journey was an opportunity to exchange their views and perceptions and identify the main challenges they may face in their communities beyond borders.
The Bootcamp will be followed by the launch of a campaign of common actions in the Euro -Mediterranean region, supported by Med Dialogue and implemented by the participants.
