introduction

"Together as ONE, together is WAN"
#IAmWAN - #JeSuisWan

On May 25, the Africa International Day, the African civil society and its diaspora were mobilized to fight against the health and social consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

IN ASSOCIATION WITH

WAN (Worldwide Afro Network)
brought together Artists, Leaders, and Innovators. It took place all day long on social networks with the hashtags #JeSuisWan and #IAmWan.
A Show 2.0 was broadcasted for free in prime time, on all African national channels and some private channels, with the technical support of the African Union Broadcasting.

All actors of this Show 2.0 have set themselves the objectives of raising awareness about the risks of infection, to engage in a collective reflection on post-crisis Africa, and to support the actors in the construction of this new Africa : United and Innovative.

"Africans, Afro-descendants (c
Caribbean, Indian Ocean and North and South America), and changemakers from all over the world came together under one banner so that Africa could start taking the leadership of a new world to build: Inclusive and Sustainable." - Amobé Mévégué

WAN proved that the most unexpected successes happen when diverse topics and people come together.
