Cultural Diplomacy in Africa: A Forum for Young Leaders
The European African Alliance: Enhancing the Inter-cultural Dialogue between Europe and Africa to promote the Stability and economic Development within the two Continents
(Brussels, April 15th – 19th, 2013)
Cultural Diplomacy in Africa: A Forum for Young Leaders (CDA) is a network of young individuals from across the world, who share an interest in the African continent. The program is based on the recognition that cultural diplomacy represents an important tool in helping Africa to address the challenges it currently faces. The network conducts ongoing activity aimed at supporting development and strengthening relations between different countries and cultural groups within Africa, and between Africa and external partners.
Individuals can join the CDA Forum by taking part in one of the CDA Weeklong Seminars, which are held every 4-6months. Each CDA Weeklong Seminar will be focused on a specific theme related to the African continent and the goals of the Forum. These Weeklong Seminars include lectures, seminars, and workshops lead by experts from the fields of politics, academia, and civil society, as well as cultural and social activities. In addition to raising awareness amongst the participants of the field of cultural diplomacy and salient issues concerning the African continent, the week also provides an opportunity to network and experience the vibrant city of Berlin.
Once they have joined the CDA Forum, members are supported by the ICD in organizing leadership initiatives, conducting academic research, and are invited to join the ICD Online Forum - enabling them to share information and communicate with like-minded individuals across the world.
Cultural Diplomacy in Europe: A Forum for Young Leaders (CDE) is open to young professionals and students with an interest in exploring and strengthening relations between European States, in international affairs in general, and Europe in particular.
The speakers during the conference will include leading figures and experts from international politics, academia, the diplomatic community, civil society and the private sector, from across the world. These speakers will include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.
