See you this August!

First preview of EFA24 speakers

From 17 to 30 August 2024, EFA sparks ideas and initiates action among European key actors. As of 14 May, you will here find the programme for our event.

The annual theme “Moment of Truth” reflects the crucial decisions that have to be made this year. With over 70 elections worldwide, this year sets course for our future. Four thematic tracks - Climate, Finance and Economy, Security, Democracy and the Rule of Law - shape our session programming and speaker selection.

These are some contributors who will be joining us. The list will be continuously updated in the weeks to come. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Alpbach!
