European Union Global Diaspora Facility

Join the European Union Global Diaspora Facility (EUDiF) for a groundbreaking multi-day online conference to which we invite all actors in the diaspora-development ecosystem to exchange on the state of play of diaspora engagement and discuss its future, with a focus on green transitions and youth#diaspora4future

After the EUDiF series of diaspora consultation and regional webinars and government roundtables, 22-24 June brings together policy-makers, diaspora representatives and other development practitioners from around the world for the first ever Future Forum. As the name suggests, this multi-stakeholder event is an opportunity to look ahead, sharing practices and ideas for how to maximise the potential of diaspora engagement for development in the years ahead.

The event will take place online and is free to join. It is open to all interested actors. All sessions will be run in English, French and Spanish as a minimum, with simultaneous interpretation; additional languages may be on offer for specific sessions.

Be sure to join the special networking session on Wednesday, 23 June, from 15h30 to 16h30 (CEST)!
