The Africa Roundtable on 9 June 2021, took place with a focus on “Covid-19 Recovery” and “Green Transition.” Covid-19 hit Africa and Europe hard on many levels. Rebuilding a more resilient economy is paramount after the Covid-19 pandemic ends. At the same time, the crisis offers an opportunity for a green transition for both continents. This major challenge can best be met by the two continents working together. How reconstruction can be shaped was discussed at The Africa Roundtable.

The United Nations have defined 17 goals for a sustainable development: to end hunger, to guarantee education and to promote economic growth, jobs, climate change, and justice – worldwide. It is about shared responsibility and opportunities: Economic growth requires education. Increased social equality can lead to reduced levels of poverty by enabling economic growth. And when poverty ends, markets are created. When we learn to understand and consider the connections and correlations, we can secure the future of the world and profit in a sustainable way.
