The summit was dedicated to debating and exchanging opinions and experiences related to regional challenges in the Euro-Mediterranean area:  migration, refugees, female empowerment, as well as the role civil society plays in facing these challenges.

The First Minister of Greece gave the opening speech at the summit and the UfM participated with a talk in the inaugural session, presenting the activities and efforts carried out by the UfM. The UfM does so as a platform for regional dialogue and a promoter of female empowerment, youth employment and sustainable and inclusive development.
