Gabriel Mvogo, President for the Youth Organization for the European and African Union, is participating in Political Festival of Europe

Held for the first time from 25 to 28 August 2022 in Mariager, Northern Denmark, Political Festival of Europe is a platform and space where visitors from all over Europe will have the opportunity to help shape European democracy and its future. Here, citizens gather with politicians and decision-makers from across the continent for exciting debates and talks, while also experiencing the rich and diverse cultures of Europe.

Gabriel Mvogo, President for the Youth Organization for the European and African Union, has taken up the initiative to join Political Festival of Europe as a speaker. Gabriel will for instance be joining two debates on Friday 26th August – one being on health in Africa and the other one being on how Europe can help, when it comes to securing sustainable development in Africa.

Africa has the greatest mineral, natural and human resources in the world. Europe has the most important financial capital and technology in our world. We appreciate that these two continents are neighbours, but we wonder about the obstacles to their cooperation. Because, our two peoples share languages, human and economic links. These links are facilitated by our geographical proximity. Therefore, the peace and security of our populations and our borders are more than ever interdependent. The Political Festival of Europe is today an international platform, which can play an important role for an equal cooperation between Europe and Africa,

We are delighted about the participation of Gabriel Mvogo. As the President for the Youth Organization for the European and African Union, Gabriel has important insights into Europe’s and Africa’s bilateral relations – thus, his insights are of value to the debates. We look forward to the discussions that will take place on stage,

says Jan Bertelsen, CEO for Political Festival of Europe. Tweet

Gabriel Mvogo, formand for AU-EU Ungdomsorganisationen, deltager pĂĄ Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe – ”Det Europæiske Folkemøde” – afholdes for første gang den 25.-28. august 2022 i Mariager. Folkemødet er det sted, hvor de mange besøgende fra hele Europa får lejlighed til at forme Europæisk demokrati og dets fremtid. Til august samles borgere sammen med politikere og beslutningstagere fra hele kontinentet til spændende debatter og samtaler. Udover de politiske events, kan besøgende også opleve de rige og mangfoldige kulturer af Europa.

Gabriel Mvogo, formand for AU-EU Ungdomsorganisationen, deltager på Political Festival of Europe som taler. På Festivalen, deltager Gabriel i to debatter fredag 26. august – den ene handler om sundhed i Afrika og den anden om, hvordan Europa kan hjælpe med at sikre bæredygtig udvikling i Afrika.

Afrika har de største mineralske, naturlige og menneskelige ressourcer i verden. Europa har den vigtigste finansielle kapital og teknologiske løsninger i vores verden. Vi sætter pris på, at disse to kontinenter er naboer, men vi undrer os over de udfordringer, der kan opstå i samarbejdet. Fordi vores to folk deler sprog, menneskelige og økonomiske forbindelser og ligheder. Disse forbindelser er lettet af vores geografiske nabolag. Derfor er freden og sikkerheden for vores befolkninger og vores grænser - mere end nogensinde før - afhængige af hinanden. Political Festival of Europe er i dag en international platform, som kan spille en vigtig rolle for et ligeværdigt samarbejde mellem Europa og Afrika,

fremhæver Gabriel Mvogo. Tweet

Vi er glade for Gabriel Mvogos deltagelse. Som formand for AU-EU Ungdomsorganisationen har Gabriel vigtig viden om Europas og Afrikas bilaterale relationer – dermed er hans perspektiver et vigtig bidrag til netop de to debatter. Vi ser frem til de diskussioner, der vil finde sted på scenen,

siger Jan Bertelsen, CEO for Political Festival of Europe. Tweet

Political Festival of Europe/Det Europæiske Folkemøde er en årlig festival, der fejrer demokratiet og er platform for den demokratiske samtale. På Festivalen vil vi diskutere de mest presserende emner på den europæiske dagsorden. Udover de mange politiske events, vil Festivalen være et sted hvor deltagerne kan opleve musik, kultur, mad og drikke fra hele Europa.
