HAPPY AFRICA DAY
This year’s Africa Union Day celebrations happened virtually and online due to the massive impact of COVID-19 on the continent and the world under the theme: Silencing The Guns: Creating Conducive Conditions for Africa’s Development and Intensifying the Fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Virtual Conference was organized by the Department of Peace and Security of the African Union Commission (AUC), under the Silencing the Guns Initiative

The virtual conference seeks to give impetus to the theme on silencing the guns in Africa, which was launched as the AU theme of the year for 2020. Additionally, it seeks to strengthen collaborative efforts among Member States, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and the private sector, to take ownership of the provisions contained in the silencing the guns initiative. The event assigns a prominent role to women and youth, to whom the campaign seeks to protect the most.

Some of the objectives of the virtual conference during the celebration of the Africa Day is to:

Ø engage stakeholders towards the development of country-level and sub-regional programmes of action towards silencing the guns in Africa, with particular attention to the current global context;

Ø sensitize and generate interest among African Citizens about the nexus between development and peace;

Ø generate innovate ideas on how Silencing the Guns can be used to move the continent forward, towards a more integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa;

Ø increase visibility on how the African Union’s work relates to the African citizens in reference to Silencing the Guns; among others.
