Africa Day 2023

Africa Day 2023

Climate security will take centre stage as the main theme of this year's event. Climate change poses one of the most serious threats to global security. Under the theme "Africa and Europe: Climate Security for the Future – Global Challenges, Local Actions", this year's Conference will address different aspects of climate security, the way it is addressed internationally within the scope of the UN Security Council, the COP28 Climate Summit, the role of civil society, women and young people in dealing with climate change, building local resilience to climate change, and the global climate finance challenge.

Addressing climate security is essential if we are to ensure the well-being and stability of communities and countries around the world, and the global community as a whole. The Conference will offer a platform for further inter-regional exchange and cooperation to advance climate security.

Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Tanja Fajon will host the event, which will be attended by ministers of foreign affairs of African countries, ministers of foreign affairs of some European countries, senior representatives of the European Union and the African Union, representatives of the diplomatic community, experts, researchers, representatives of NGOs, the African diaspora in Slovenia, the media and many others.
