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.

PANEL 1

African entrepreneurs driving inclusive innovation and growth.

Sheer ambition and aspiration of Africa’s youth is the inner challenge to retake the narrative and reinvent the continent’s technological and entrepreneurial future. Innovation is an opportunity, mobilizing knowledge, expertise and resources to enhance Africa’s innovation ecosystem and raise awareness of the ‘continent of the future’ innovation potential. Is Africa leading the innovation revolution? How to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities from the digital transformation that Africa is offering? Which are the most entrepreneurial cities in Europe? Which African cities are growing and blooming now?
PANEL 2

From donor-recipient towards equal participation.

Building a new Africa–Europe relationship based on mutual respect and collective decision-making presents a huge challenge. How to move towards a more balanced, mutually respectful, relationship between both continents? How to shift Europe-Africa relationship away from aid, towards investment and trade? How to exploit the geographical advantage between both continents in terms of proximity at the same time as it confronts the politically divisive issue of uncontrolled migration?

PANEL 3

Changing the narrative: valuing talent and diversity from migrant flows.

It is only a matter about perception – changing the problem and changing the narrative, bringing in a new generation of the African diaspora and perspectives through writers, artists, actors, producers, singers, addressing well known issues about legacy in a creative and simple way. What can be done so Europe and Africa can profit from each other? Which are the cultural and psychological barriers regarding Africa and Europe relations? How to strengthen cooperation between south of Europe and the North of Africa to take the most of proximity opportunities?
PANEL 4

Africa: The new frontier for impact investment and innovation.

In Africa, impact investing is a growing phenomenon, albeit one which is developing at different speeds in different parts of the continent where Southern Africa is leading the field. Home to some of the fastest developing economies and markets in the world, with real challenges to solve and real ways to solve them. Africa is the land of opportunity and the playground where impact investment and innovation is the upfront. How are these projects evolving in Africa? In which areas can impact investing make a difference? Can “impact” be measured credibly?
