A blue sky above the Belgian coast, blue EU and UN flags flying, and none other than the blue Smurfs in their homeland, a perfect setting for a gathering of around 2000 students on a mission to save the blue planet. This was just one of the first actions taking place in the margins of the #EUBeachCleanUp – a global campaign for climate, happening on or around 21 September, World Coastal Cleanup Day. This day also marks the International Day of Peace, and also happens to be the day when in New York the UN Youth Climate Summit brings together young activists, innovators, entrepreneurs, and change-makers to showcase climate solutions and engage with global leaders on this defining issue of our time. Adolescents and youths from different walks of life…. together with international organisations and global partners… all with one goal: joining forces in this global fight… a peaceful fight… committed to combatting climate change!

Bamako, le 20 septembre 2019 - La Médiation Internationale a pris acte du report de la 38ieme session du Comité de suivi de l‘Accord pour la paix et la réconciliation au Mali issu du processus d’Alger qui devait se tenir le 17 Septembre dernier à Kidal.

La Médiation Internationale appelle l’ensemble des parties maliennes à poursuivre le dialogue afin de créer les conditions favorables à la poursuite sans délais de la mise en œuvre de l’Accord pour la paix, notamment dans la perspective des prochaines échéances internationales. Ce travail conjoint doit permettre d’aboutir rapidement au parachèvement du redéploiement des services sociaux de base, des services de l’état, y compris des éléments des forces de défense et de sécurité maliennes reconstituées dans les régions du nord.

La Médiation internationale réitère son accompagnement indéfectible au Mali sur le chemin de la stabilité et d’une paix pérenne.
