THE FUTURE STARTS IN THE PRESENT

ABOUT US

Brazil Forum UK is a platform that seeks to facilitate and generate engaging and multidisciplinary conversations and debates around issues faced in Brazil. The Forum’s main goal has been, since its last edition, to create a space for these debates taking into account the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, it has been using modern technologies to welcome individuals to participate virtually in pluralistic discussions. Notable Brazilian guest-speakers are invited annually to share their personal insights and acquired knowledge on a variety of issues.

2021 EDITION

Brazil Forum UK is an annual event that intends to create a bridge between Brazil and the UK. These are conversations about the main topics being discussed throughout the year, whether on politics, economics, health, culture and many other fields.

Since the beginning, the idea has been to open space for different points of view on the same theme. And this time, it won’t be different! One more edition made by Brazilians who do their masters, PhDs and post-docs in UK universities. 

Now, with a singular objective: to amplify the voices that have long been heard in their own communities. That's why this year we will bring in native peoples, black people, women, LGBTQIA+, and all the identities we believe are necessary to build the future.  Because as we say: The future begins in the present. 

From politics immersed in polarization to discussions about fake news, and the development of vaccines in the midst of a global pandemic - which makes us meet virtually. These are some of the clippings and pillars that will be covered in June, in the 2021’s edition.

 

It is time for dialogue to be present! It is time for us to resignify some codes and, above all, to be griots - those whose vocation is to preserve and transmit stories. It is time to be the tellers of our own stories.
