The 4th Africa-Europe Youth Summit will bring together more than 120 youth leaders from both continents, including African Diaspora, to work and agree on a declaration on themes including education, peace & security, environment, business, democratic inclusion and culture.
Eligible participants should be between 18 and 30 years old, be involved in a youth organisation/network, have experience of implementing an initiative under at least one of the themes, have prior interest and previous knowledge of Africa-Europe cooperation and able to work in either English or French.
A follow-up group, the “plug-in initiative”, will take the declaration and work between 30 October – 29 November 2017 to develop projects on Africa-EU cooperation with concrete deliverables. These will be presented to the EU-Africa Summit on 30 November 2017, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, which is itself focused on youth. The initiative is still to be confirmed and expected to be finalised by 12 July 2017.
Interested participants should:
– be available to dedicate significant time and energy to the initiative (for a period of around 6 weeks in October and November),
– have regular internet access for distance participation,
– preference for experience cooperating in international and multicultural teams.
Deadline to apply: 26 July 2017 (participation in Youth Plug-in Initiative is optional).
