ABOUT EURAFRICAN FORUM

EAF is an independent platform that gathers all those who are building a positive dialogue between Africa and Europe, such as entrepreneurs, activists, researchers and political decision makers.

In its first edition (2018), EurAfrican Forum was held under the theme “Crafting Coalitions for Change”. That year, prominent speakers sent a call to action, to build trust between Europe and Africa, and to seize that opportunity to rebalance and promote euro-african geography, and also to strenghten the diaspora networks.

The second edition (2019), about «Partnership of Equals : Sharing Values, Sharing Prosperity», was centered on a new approach to the relationship between Europe and Africa, changing the narrative for both continents, in order to build a responsible, prosperous and sustainable future together.

At last, the third edition (2020) was held exclusively on a digital platform, and focused on Finding a Common Ground, for the two continents, in a post COVID world.

After three largely successful editions, the 4th EurAfrican Forum will take place in october 2021, bringing back conversation and debate about cooperation for Africa and Europe.

The theme for the 2021 edition is ‘Getting Along – New paths for Cooperation between the Twin Continents’.
