"Our Future - Africa-Europe Dialogues"

"Our Future - Africa-Europe Dialogues" is a series of nine forums held over three years, acting in response to Achille Mbembe's report entitled "The New Africa-France Relations: Facing Tomorrow's Challenges Together" and the hopes expressed by participants in the New Africa-France Summit, held on 8 October 2021 in Montpellier. 

Its three main objectives are to intensify dialogue between African and European civil societies in order to devise solutions to the many common challenges, to create the conditions for free, transparent and peaceful exchanges between stakeholders from both continents and (iii) to work on the co-development of new tools for cooperation. The series is based on co-construction, at all stages from design to follow-up and evaluation of the forum.
