The Pan-African Council (PAC) has officially launched its new website on April 2nd, 2012. With an entirely new look and updated content we hope to strengthen the organization’s identity and visibility across the globe.

The new site is more comprehensive and accessible and comes equipped with more intuitive functionality, thus serving as a modern and efficient tool for its visitors. The realization of this new website represents an important step towards improved integration of the latest information resources, with a view to facilitating communication and dialogue between the Council and its interested parties.

Several sections of the website are still under construction, however in the near future we are planning an introduction of additional tools and services, if you have any questions and/or suggestions, comments or concerns please contact us at info @ or through the contact form.

The Pan-African Council (PAC) is seeking to unlock the stream of possibilities for young people interested in the development of the African continent, the diaspora, and their respective communities around the globe.


As Council members, we believe it is possible to base the bilateral relationships on common ground across Africa and the diaspora in order to reap the benefits of cooperation on a broad array of issues: economic, cultural, environmental, scientific, public health and international relations.
