Launch of the 2023 Partners Initiative: Blue Economy and Ocean Governance

The Africa-Europe Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the  2023 Partners Initiativewhich has been created in response to the demand for a renewed partnership between local youth organizations across Africa and Europe following the 6th AU-EU Summit.  The project will award selected youth-led organizations with micro-awards of up to €5000 to deliver cross-continental grass root projects addressing rising global challenges.

This first cycle of the initiative is on the theme of Blue Economy and Ocean Governance, more specifically:

  • Youth-led entrepreneurship and innovation in the domain of ocean/blue economy
  • Partnership initiatives focused on ocean biodiversity, food systems, and climate mitigation

Award winners will enter a network of experts and collaborate with AEF in helping to shape policy at the cross-continental and multilateral levels.
