The International Community School of Abidjan will be hosting the upcoming AISA-GISS 2020 conference, from January 16 – 18, 2020.
The summit theme is N’Zassa: Together we are whole.The word N’Zassa means ‘mixture’ in the Akan languages spoken by several ethnic groups in Cote d’Ivoire. It is usually used to describe a traditional cloth made of small pieces of fabric that, taken in isolation, are not useful for much, but once sewn together results in a beautiful piece with better functionality and aesthetic value. This word can also be used to describe the value of mixing of cultures, ideas, concepts to improve desired outcomes. By using ‘N’Zassa’ symbolism, we will explore the importance of the collaborative contribution of all members of the society in addressing global issues and attaining sustainable development.
