What is the African Futures 2023 about?

African Futures will be about common challenges and future issues that affect our relations and ties with the African continent. These relationships are also shaped by the colonial legacy.

The city of Cologne is committed to actively coming to terms with this (post)colonial legacy and to addressing the question of what this shared history means for living together in Cologne today.
