Result-oriented, fact-based, continuous
Encounter, Knowledge, Communication
We promote global responsibility and multilateral cooperation by networking key actors and leaders from Africa and Europe at our high-level events. Results and policy recommendations are prepared through studies and strategy papers while we are in continuous exchange with our network. Thus, we ensure that the dialogue has a lasting impact on political discourse.Our focus areas are business and global health as well as pressing political topics. In doing so, we also include the intersecting topics climate, advancement of women and digital matters in our program.
The personal exchange always comes first: It paves the way for a trusting conversation, a result-oriented dialogue, and sustainable relationships. Our curated gatherings aim to build strong networks to jointly address the global challenges of our time. This is how we shape the African-European cooperation of the future.
The exchange of knowledge and the publication of policy papers and studies are crucial for the development cooperation of the future. They provide a solid basis of information, promote the exchange of experience and facilitate evidence-based decisions. Only in this way can we develop effective strategies for future cooperation between Europe and Africa and consciously act as a competent partner.
The partnership between Europe and Africa deserves the best of friends. In an ongoing dialogue, we allow the stakeholders of African-European cooperation to speak publicly and invite them to share their perspectives. In this way, we create awareness for the pressing issues of our time and enable broader participation and transparency for the development cooperation of the future.
