The European Humanitarian Forum will be political, strategic and high level. It will involve key decision makers and stakeholders from Member States, the EU institutions including the European Parliament and humanitarian partner organisations, for instance non-EU humanitarian actors, UN agencies, international non-governmental organisations, the Red Cross/Red Crescent family, academics, local responders and people affected by humanitarian crises. Guests from other partner countries (both donor countries and countries affected by crises) will also be invited to participate.
The Forum will be accessible to anyone. For participants, the Forum will bring innovative and high-level insights as well as the possibility to contribute to the implementation of the European humanitarian strategy.
In order to ensure the strategic effectiveness of the event and to comply with the COVID-19 sanitary measures currently in place, a certain prioritisation will be established for physical attendance. Nevertheless, an inclusive participation will be guaranteed remotely, in light of its hybrid modality, which will allow the virtual presence of stakeholders and attendees from all around the world.
Electronic registration for the Forum is now open.
To register for the Forum, please follow this link.
The deadline for registration is 14 January 2022. Please note that that registration is only confirmed after approval.
Please note that speakers and other selected guests will receive a personal invitation with more details on how they can confirm their participation.
The European Humanitarian Forum is co-organised as a courtesy of the European Commission and the then French Presidency of the Council of the EU. No fee will be required to participate at any of the sessions foreseen.
While the participation at the European Humanitarian Forum will not require the payment of any participation fee, for the regular attendees who will not be involved in the organisation and implementation of the event, no additional expenses, such as travel or insurance costs, will be reimbursed.
Guests who have been invited as speakers will receive further guidance on their participation from the Forum secretariat.
Member States, partner organisations and other stakeholders can suggest topics (until 30 November) for Humanitarian Talks, which may be incorporated into the Forum programme or held in the margins of the event (after vetting by the Forum co-hosts).
Complementarity with other sessions in the programme and relevance in accordance with the four key priorities of Forum will be essential.
