UNESCO Looking for Innovative Ideas on African Development

UNESCO has unveiled a new competition for innovative ideas in promoting African development over the next decade. The competition seeks to engage ordinary people in creating a blueprint for Africa’s advancement, according to Voice of America.

“The purpose is not to take stock of the independence [movements] on the African continent, but rather to put some innovative ideas on how to move Africa forward in the main fields of action like economy and development, culture, youth, religion,” UNESCO’s Arnaud Drouet explained. “And the idea is to involve teachers, academics, civil society actors like NGOs, politicians also to propose to UNESCO some concrete ideas.”
