Rabat – Moroccans Living Abroad (MRE) are invited by the Ministry Delegate in Charge of Moroccans Living Abroad and Business of Migration, in partnership with Sultan Moulay Slimane University, to attend Spring University’s “Morocco, Land of Cultures” on April 10-14, in Beni Mellal.
This event aims to preserve the identity of Moroccans residing abroad and strengthen their ties with their country of origin, as a part of the ministry’s strategy to develop cultural activities in order to better meet the needs and expectations of the Moroccan community abroad.
Hundreds of young Moroccans from different countries around the world aged 18 to 25 are invited to discover and explore the offerings of Beni Mellal, in partnership with students from Sultan Moulay Slimane University.
Spring University aims to highlight the diversity of Moroccan heritage, wealth, and assets in the Beni Mellal-Khenifra region, with its strategic location and ideal climate.
For five days, the students will come together to participate in conferences and debates led by Moroccan researchers and experts, highlighting the wealth of the region and its cultural heritage.
Some of the week’s themes include the evolution of science throughout the history of Morocco, the national cause, Moroccan youth and national identity, and the history and culture of Morocco.
The Spring University is similar to the Al Akhawayn University event, Winter University, which was organized in Ifrane under the theme of “Living Together,” in December 2017. Both programs aims to preserve Moroccan identity for the new generations of Moroccans living abroad, strengthening their links with their country of origin and consequently, the contributions to their home societies.
