AU Watch 2063 Ten-Year Media, Communication & Outreach Project
The importance and role of the media to correct injustices and advance human rights cannot be underestimated. At AU Watch we use the power of the media to monitor and report on the activities of the African Union and hold it accountable to the standard of the Constitutive Act and the high ideals it has set for itself.
In the process, we seek to advance a wider understanding of what the AU is, what it does and how it does it. Through our comprehensive media, outreach, education programs and activities, we raise awareness, expand and disseminate information and understanding of AU affairs.
A free and independent media are central to the AU 2063 project. Promoting them is AU Watch’s mission. We think ten years is just about the right amount of time needed to educate all of us on the implications of Agenda 2063 project, and how we can all be part of the dream.
AU Watch ‘2063 Ten-Year Media, Communication and Outreach Project’ is part of the organisation’s Media, Outreach and Education Program (MOEP). The MOEP has some of the following functions:
KEY OBJECTIVES OF AU WATCH ‘2063 TEN-YEAR MEDIA, COMMUNICATION AND OUTREACH PROJECT’
Is it realistic? The last 53 years have seen patchy progress in terms of the promotion and protection of human rights. Should the next ten years be business as usual? Can the next ten years, as a precursor to 2063, be different? Beginning 2020 as a Special Year, let’s make the next ten years special.
Together with you, let’s help to deliver Agenda 2063.
But get connected. Have your say in ‘Project Keep Your Word’. Discuss what Africa should look like in 2063. Do you really see the Kwame Nkrumah dream of a United States of Africa materializing by 2063? Do you really believe we can rise above our fractious and divisive colonial past, tribal politics, unbridled nationalism, human rights violations, not to mention, corruption and our seeminglyendless lust for wealth and power? Do you really believe that by 2063, there will be no more senseless fratricidal conflicts – no more South Sudans, ‘Libyas’ and Boko Harams? Seriously, are you able to envision an Africa by 2063 that is the envy of the world? Really? Okay, have your say. Share a multimedia and become a participant by logging
