Surrounding the I EU-CELAC Summit in Santiago de Chile, a series of events
took place over the last months to provide input for the Summit of Heads of
State and Government. The EU-LAC Foundation has compiled a dossier
of the resulting documents.
What we do
The EU-LAC Foundation organises its activities around four interrelated work programmes:
CONNECT: Effective and visible participation of civil society.
EXPLORE: Developing a joint and evolving global vision and shared strategy.
VENTURE: Dynamising the bi-regional partnership.
COMMUNICATE: Providing visibility and understanding of the EU-LAC Partnership.
Connecting the intergovernmental process with the business, academic, and social sector, as well as, in a broad and general manner, the civil society of both regions.
Promoting the development of a joint and evolving global vision and a shared strategy in both regions.
Dynamising the bi-regional strategic partnership by giving impulses to the formulation and implementation of policies and agendas.
Disseminating knowledge to improve the mutual understanding and visibility of both regions and the bi-regional partnership itself.
Our aspiration is for the economic and socio-cultural partnership between the countries of the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean to reach a sustainable dynamism, built upon the achievement of mutual benefits for the societies of both regions, with common values such as:
Democracy and the rule of law.
Respect for personal dignity and rights.
Inclusive and cohesive societies.
