OUAGADOUGOU – A significant public conference, under the banner ‘Engaging all Burkinabè in the patriotic spirit,’ is scheduled to take place on April 3 in Ouagadougou, focusing on drawing lessons from Burkina Faso’s history and exploring innovative actions for sustainable citizen involvement.

According to Burkina Information Agency, the conference is a key component of the Days of Patriotic Engagement and Citizen Participation (JEPPC), an initiative designed to bolster the sense of patriotism and civic responsibility among the Burkinabè population. The event aims to harness historical insights and experiences from Burkina Faso and other African nations to foster a deeper understanding of patriotic commitment and encourage active citizen participation.
