Three days for an unprecedented event

The 28th edition of the Summit will bring together 54 African Heads of State and a variety of stakeholders from Africa and France offering projects and solutions. Their ideas will help us build sustainable cities and regions and rise to the challenges of the massive urbanization expected to take place in Africa over the next few decades.


The Summit

French President Emmanuel Macron has organized this major political event which, for the first time, will bring together political and economic stakeholders from Africa and France. Together, they will take action and work towards developing the sustainable city of the future.


The City of Solutions

A business event at the Parc des Expositions in Bordeaux, bringing together over 500 French and African stakeholders who are developing solutions in the fields of the environment, energy, transport, healthcare, education, finance, safety and agriculture.



The Summit will also focus on sport and culture, with two inclusive events: a match at the Matmut Atlantique stadium and an urban music concert at Place des Quinconces.
