EURAFRICAN FORUM

AMBITION


With the theme “Crafting Coalitions for Change, this action-oriented platform aims to foster stronger collaboration between Europe and Africa in order to promote a shared green and inclusive growth, to uncover new business opportunities and to create synergies between innovation models.

African and European leaders from government, business and civil society will gather in Portugal to discuss these shared goals and to collectively explore new types of coalitions at a time where the global geopolitical landscape is rapidly changing, bringing with it promises and risks.


We believe that together, we can innovate and transform changes into opportunities. Today more than ever, Africa needs Europe, as much as Europe needs Africa.

Together we will create the framework for our shared, prosperous, sustainable joint future.
