What did I do this weekend?

It was an intense weekend where we aimed to created actual, implementable and valuable solutions to fight the virus through the Africa vs Virus 72 hour challenge. We particularly participated in suggesting a solution, as challenge owner, for the tourism industry in Africa, as an immediate and post-pandemic recovery response. I am sure there are going to be amazing ideas selected that will have the opportunity to be implemented in Africa that will make a real difference in the fight against covid 19.

Who participated? Africa! 54 countries participated.
