"Using Art and Film as Tools for Sustainable Development within Africa"
Berlin; August 22nd - 27th, 2013
Cultural Diplomacy in Africa: A Forum for Young Leaders (CDA) is a network of young individuals from across the world who share an interest in the African continent. The program is based on the recognition that cultural diplomacy represents an important tool in helping Africa to address the challenges it currently faces. The network conducts ongoing activity aimed at supporting development and strengthening relations between different countries and cultural groups within Africa, and between Africa and external partners.
As an independently developed and organized program, CDA offers a unique opportunity to come together and foster wider, deeper relations on an academic, cultural and political level. This in turn will develop a wider understanding of intercultural issues, promote personal growth, and contribute to the creation of innovative policy-oriented solutions to issues affecting all countries and cultures.
Based in Berlin, the conference will be hosted at a number of important political, historic, and cultural locations across the city.
Speakers during the Conference will include head of state and ministers, leading figures and experts from international politics, economics, academia, diplomacy, civil society, and the private sector. The speakers will also include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.
Participation in the Conference is open to governmental & diplomatic officials, academics, artists, journalists, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, young professionals and students as well as other interested individuals from across the world.
