DESCRIPTION

Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI), with the support of the African Embassies accredited to the Republic of Ireland, invite you to our annual Africa Day celebration event.

Africa Day, which falls on 25 May, is the official day of the African Union. It marks African unity and celebrates African diversity. Africa Day also represents an important opportunity to raise awareness of the progress which is being achieved in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs and Agenda 2030), and the challenges that remain to ensure that no-one is left behind. Every year Trinity College partners with the African Heads of Diplomatic Missions accredited to the Republic of Ireland to host a key event to celebrate Africa Day, which is facilitated by Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI).

Established in 2007, TIDI forms an overarching structure to coordinating and promoting International Development Research and Education. With 70+ research projects and 40+ courses with development content at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, Trinity has a strong and long standing tradition of excellence in the fields of development research and education. TIDI plays an active role in supporting the growth and enhancement of Irish-African relations through collaborative development research and education initiatives which are focused on practical solutions for real-world challenges.

As the relationship between Ireland and Africa continues to grow and change, with deepening economic ties and shared understandings of our social and environmental interconnections, TIDI, with the support of the African Embassies accredited to the Republic of Ireland are delighted to collaborate on this event to mark Africa Day 2018.
