Does anybody know what is the theme for the 2019 Africa Day celebrations?

 

On 25 May 1963, Africa made history with the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) the precursor to the African Union (AU).

Africa Day is intended to celebrate and acknowledge the successes of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU now the AU) from its creation in May 25, 1963 in the fight against colonialism and apartheid, as well as the progress that Africa has made, while reflecting upon the common challenges that the continent face in a global environment.

The theme for 2019 Day commemoration is “Healthy Lifestyle Prolongs Life”. This theme has been selected to emphasize the significant relationship between unhealthy lifestyle and premature mortality. The theme is in line with Aspiration 1 of the Agenda 2063 which is “A prosperous Africa, based on inclusive growth and sustainable development”.

The Africa Day takes the  theme that will have been set for the year at the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa.

“The Year of Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced displacement in Africa”.

It is important that every African individual and organisation takes this theme and brings it to life in their context. Let us all make an effort to educate our neighbours on what Agenda 2063 is all about.
