Memorandum of Understanding between LSD and Bibliotheca Alexandrina
The Arab region is undergoing a historic turning point in the escalating waves of violence and extremism on the one hand, and the growing demand of the Arab peoples for democracy, progress and modernity on the other, which has led to a crisis of thought, which requires intensive intellectual production and counter-extremism.
On the other hand. There is no doubt that many cultural, intellectual and scientific institutions in the Arab world have focused on combating extremism, promoting freedom of expression, diversity and critical thinking. This requires building bridges of mutual cooperation between these institutions in order to share experiences and benefit from human and technical resources. And material available.
Since its establishment in 2002, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina has a multidimensional cultural program that combines cultural events, academic research, arts and literature, as well as publications. Therefore, the library is honored to cooperate with Leadership for Sustainable Development (LSD) Ngo in Lebanon to work together in these cultural events.
