On the International Day of Portuguese Language and Culture, Canning House brings together an expert panel to discuss collaborative efforts bridging the Lusophone world in health, education and sustainable development.
Cooperation across the Lusophone World
Health, Education & Sustainable Development
Brazil, Portugal, and the six countries of Lusophone Africa - Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Cabo Verde and São Tomé and Príncipe - share a common language. This link - the product of a complex transatlantic history - is celebrated on 5 May each year during the International Day of Portuguese Language and Culture.
To mark the day this year, Canning House examines present-day cooperative ties across the Lusophone world in healthcare, education and sustainable development - where they exist, what they have achieved, and how they could go further. To discuss, we welcome a panel of experts on the Lusophone world's past, present and future.
