Established in 2020 by Friends of Europe, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, in partnership the African Climate Foundation and ONE Campaign, the Africa- Europe Foundation aims to empower a narrative shift about the relations between Africa and Europe.
The activities of the Foundation’s High-Level Group of Personalities, and the work of its Strategy Groups on Health, Digital, Transport, Agriculture and Energy, underpin our commitment of reframing the relations between Africa and Europe.
The Africa-Europe Foundation Strategy Groups mobilise and connect leaders and experts from civil society, business, policymaking from both continents, with the ambition to drive impactful transformative initiatives.
We act as an observatory of pioneering practices that can be scaled up at the regional level. Through our Women Leaders Network, we provide the space for candid dialogue among leading personalities from Africa and Europe, at the nexus of climate and health. Our cooperation with the Mayors Dialogue initiative also supports bold climate action with cities.
The Africa-Europe Foundation collaborates with high-impact organisations and leaders from civil society, business and politics both from Africa and Europe.
We envision to enlarge the Africa-Europe partnership to new and diverse actors by building an inclusive and multi-stakeholder “platform of platforms” and focusing on younger generations.
