Are you interested in Africa and her relationship with the world? How Africa can achieve sustainable development and its implications for the world? How can we transform aggression into creativity to tackle terrorism? How is gender (in)equality in Africa and how does it affect the world? How can the civil society engage to stimulate global sustainable development? How does the western media portray Africa? – In these, what is the role of the media and how can the media drive sustainable development?

This event is about having a 3 course menu with each course in a different place. If you are interested you can sign up here until 30th of June, 6 pm. Afterwards we will send the schedule of the evening to the teams.

On the evening every team prepares its meal, which will be eaten at their place with two guest teams. For the other courses the teams “run” to other flats. The constellation of the teams will change for every course, so you will meet 8 different teams during the evening.
