European Days and Weeks

Venue: European Parliament  |  City: Brussels

The Global Diaspora Week (GDW) is a week dedicated to diaspora communities and their contributions to global development. The GDW is intended to create awareness, enable collaboration and enhance learning amongst those working with diaspora communities in different locations around the world.

The celebration of the Global Diaspora week at the European Level was initiated by the African Diaspora Network in Europe in 2015 in Strasbourg at the European Parliament. Every year innovative projects are presented and a whole-week debate between the Diaspora and State Actors and development agents from Europe and Africa is organized to discuss about how to leverage the contribution of the Diaspora to the economic development of home countries and host countries.

This year the GDW will be celebrated from 5th – to 15th October 2018. At this occasion, the African Diaspora Network in Europe (ADNE) and its partners in collaboration with the European Institutions will take a proactive position and organize activities across Europe and in Africa.

Some of the featured activities are the Global Opening Ceremony  in Brussels on the 5th October crowned a Gala Dinner with the African Diaspora Entrepreneurship Award 2018.

A serie of events is also planned throughout this week with our African and European partners:

  • A group of Diaspora Experts in ICT will participate to the Youth Connekt Africa Summit in Kigali, Rwanda from the 8th -10th to exchange best practices with Klab Rwanda and other youth from across the Continent.
  • A workshop on how digital communication can help raising awareness and change the narrative. around migration on the 10th in Roma, Italia.
