The African Union Commission (AUC) and Oxfam International started its annual two-day training workshop Monday to focus on providing an in-depth understanding of the African Union.
Jointly organized by the Department of Communication and Information of the AUC and the Oxfam International Liaison Office, the workshop was created to educate representatives from the media and civil society organizations on the structures and decision-making processes of the African Union (AU).
Participants will gain insight into the AU's historical background, missions, programs and projects, current issues and engagement opportunities. They will also learn about the achievements made under the leadership of Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma and the 10-year implementation plan of the AU Agenda 2063.
The workshop is being held in the framework of the 26th African Union Summit and is being conducted with two sets of facilitators: the first involves individuals within the AU systems and the second consists of those from the media and civil society organizations.
At the end of the workshop, participants will take an evaluation test that will be used to determine their understanding of the training.
The 26th African Union Summit, featuring the theme of human rights with a focus on women's rights, is taking place through Sunday at the AU Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
