Brainstorm and recommendations for an African Urban Agenda

In the context of the 4th EU-Africa Summit that took place in Brussels on 2 and 3 April, a group of around 40 leasing specialists and thinkers from international organisations, pan-African organisations, academia, civil society and the private and public sector gathered in the beautiful BOZAR building in the afternoon of 3 April, to discuss what route the EU-Africa collaboration could follow to stimulate inclusive development in the African urban reality.



After intensive and lively round table sessions in the afternoon, the resulting concrete recommendations were presented to José Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission. You can reach his reaction here.


The round table was Initiated by BOZAR, in collaboration with UN Habitat and EuropeAid. It can be seen as a next step following the ‘Art and Architecture at Work’ project that took place in the previous years in several major cities in Africa.


ArchiAfrika and AAmatters contributed to the programme by bringing in key nodes of their network. Joe Addo (ArchiAfrika) and Berend van der Lans (AAmatters) were leading round table sessions together with Lesley Lokko and Sylvain Haon.


A short video can be found at the BOZAR website.
