EURAFRICAN FORUM

AMBITION


The EurAfrican Forum exists to explore and promote the power of diasporas as a connecting force between cities, regions and continents, between cultures, companies and people.

It is an action-oriented gathering of leaders that aims to foster stronger collaboration between Europe and Africa to promote a shared green and inclusive growth for the two continents, fostering mechanisms for collaboration and creating new synergies and partnerships.

Under the theme “Partnership of Equals: Sharing Values, Sharing Prosperity”, the 2019 Forum will focus on common challenges, changing relationships, aiming to create fresh opportunities, showcasing examples of progress and inspiring transformation for a shared prosperous and sustainable common future of Europe and Africa.


In the first edition of the EurAfrican Forum, under the theme “Crafting Coalitions for Change”, prominent speakers debated a call to action for building trust between Europe and Africa and taking the opportunity to rebalance and promote the EurAfrican geographies and reinforce the diaspora networks.

Attended by more than 400 people in the first edition, the Forum provides a major opportunity for networking and exchanges between those that are crafting innovative approaches for common challenges. Notably African and European leaders from government, business and civil society, young entrepreneurs, activists, social influencers, NGOs and media, gathered to constitute the ‘EurAfrican Community Network’.


THE

TOPICS


The Forum positions the youth of the two continents as the hope for a better future and will address new partnership paradigms between Africa and Europe to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and new skills.
