The Mediterranean Citizens' Assembly Foundation (MCAF) has become an observing member of the MedCities Association.

The MCAF is a civil-society network that promotes citizen dialogue, proposals and actions around all shores of the Mediterranean. It encourages democratic values of freedom, peace and respect for diversity, as well as environmental responsibility in the region.

The candidature of the MCAF for observing member of MedCities was presented at the 2018 MedCities General Assembly, which took place in Barcelona, 5 October 2018, and was unanimously approved by the association's members.

The Foundation works to promote the emergence of a Mediterranean community of peoples and operates through ‘circles' of citizens which aim to serve as places for local and open dialogue. MedCities and the MCAF have worked together through citizen involvement in the Interreg MED MADRE project on sustainable urban and peri-urban agriculture.
