Africa Day

Photo album of the ‘Afrikda Day‘ event in Amstedram.

On Saturday 18 November, the annual Africa Day took place. For 25 years, this has been the largest event about Africa in the Netherlands. A day full of workshops, debates, lectures, literature, films, music, a fashion show, and much more!

The theme of this edition was climate justice. All over the world, people are struggling with climate change, the greatest challenge of our time. But nowhere is the challenge as great as in African countries, even though they are not big polluters. A broad movement, therefore, demands just global climate action. On Africa Day, this is what we talked about. With a discussion about oil pollution in the Niger Delta, an election debate between candidates for the upcoming Dutch elections, speeches from climate activists, conversations between Dutch and African trade unions, literature programs, and much more.
