The Afrikadag took place on the 28th of May 2022 after two years of absence. The Afrikadag was founded to provide a platform for African voices in the Netherlands, to connect people who are interested in Africa and international cooperation, and to discuss cooperation between Africa and Europe on the basis of equality.
Last Saturday, we were representing IOM the Netherlands at Afrikadag. Three CD4D Ambassadors gave a workshop about knowledge transfer to countries of origin. Innovations and student exchanges in Sierre Leone, diaspora organizations in the Netherlands and ICT training in Ghana; the Ambassadors managed to inspire the audience with their stories and experiences. Afrikadag provided a great opportunity to share ideas and find new ways to cooperate. We would like to thank the Foundation of European Progressive Studies and Foundation Max van der Stoel for organizing the event.
