On 18 May 2021, Klima-Allianz Deutschland (Climate Alliance Germany) and VENRO are hosting the international conference Joining Forces for Climate Action – African and European Civil Society Perspectives. The event brings together political stakeholders and representatives from academia, civil society and media from Africa and Europe to highlight the urgent need for an ambitious climate policy rooted in solidarity. Relations between the two continents and ways in which they can act together will form the main focus of the conference, taking into account the demands of civil society. The following two sets of questions will be addressed:
- How can we build more sustainable, more resilient societies? What strategies and partnerships – such as the European Green Deal – will be required on an international level?
- What role does civil society play in climate cooperation between the African Union and the European Union? How can civil society actors in Africa and Europe be strengthened in order to actively shape climate solidarity?
