This year’s UWC Africa Week will take place virtually on 3-6 August 2020. Africa Week is an annual student-led event that offers students a platform to explore Africa and reflect deeply about the challenges and opportunities presented by the continent. The Africa Week 2020 theme: Africa Untold. Unexpected. Unbreakable will attempt to uncover unseen, unrecounted and overlooked stories of Africa. The theme urges a contextualized understanding of Africa – the cradle of human civilization, its legacy and unique geopolitical position.
The school principal Stephen Lowry said, "We invite members of our community including students, parents, governors and alumni to participate."
