25.04.22 - The Afrikadag is still looking for volunteers!

We are still looking for volunteers for the Afrikadag 2022! Without support of our partners FEPS, KIT, IOB, ActionAid, Oxfam Novib and OneWorld we would not be able to host the Afrikadag. The same of course goes for our enthusiastic volunteers, whom we cannot do without! We are still looking for people who would like to support the Afrikadag-team with, amongst other things, checking tickets, guiding people through the building and constructing and clearing the stands at the inspirational market. Of course we will provide lunch and you can be sure to expect some well-deserved drinks at the following "borrel"! Will you help us on Saturday May 28? Sign-up here!

02.03.22 - African voices need to be heard

The African continent is rich and diverse in culture, nature and natural resources. In addition, it has a fast growing young population. This combination means there lie endless possilities. Already in a previous article it was emphasized that young Africans cannot wait to be working on a bright future for their respective countries. It is essential that such voices are being heard! For many years we have been organising the Afrikadag, of which the main aim was to include such voices the Dutch civil discussion on European-African cooperation.

02.03.22 - Programme will be released in April

It takes a little longer for the Afrikadag 2022 programme to be published. However, behind the scenes much effort is being put into scheduling the many workshops for which amazing ideas have been proposed by our friends, partners and all other contacts. Everybody seems to be looking forward to the prospect of being able to get together for the first time since 2019. Like before the pandemic, the programme is going to be packed with workshops. There will be something there for everyone. We are also very much looking forward and cannot wait to share the programme once it is done.

25.02.22 - 2022 Afrikadag volunteers wanted!

The Afrikadag has finally returned! On Saturday the 28th of May we are very happy to open the doors of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in Amsterdam again. In partnership with the FEPS, the FMS cooperates with many incredible partners to host this event. However, if not for the support of many enthusiastic volunteers, the Afrikadag would not have been such a resounding success over the previous years. We hope that this year we can count on many new and returning volunteers to complete our Afrikadag team. Volunteers can expect to be served a lunch during the day, as well as some well deserved drinks after the event!

16.02.22 - Towards the EU-Africa Summit

Last December, President Macron spoke of establishing a "fair system of peace and prosperity" at the upcoming EU-Africa Summit in Brussels on February 17 and 18. Now that France holds the EU presidency, and Macron will therefore host this sixth summit, he can start to make real progress on this ambition. According to the African Union (AU), this is an important moment for creating a long-term cooperation that represents more than just a donor-and-recipient relationship.
