This event serves as a follow up to the just ended digital week, as well as a precursor to the digital exhibition that will be open to the public following this reception.

The conclusion of the “French Digital June” in Accra

« French DJ: French Digital June » has been divided into three sections with different dimensions, the first of which is the educational part featuring the Hackathon challenge – a competition that seeks to change and modernize the learning of French in Ghana. The aim of this contest is to develop a useful product for learners in order to promote a more dynamic image of French. It also seeks to sensitize teachers on digital tools and diverse teaching practices. After this comes the economic component, the French Digital June forum, which will take place on the 6th of June at the Best Western Premier Hotel at Airport, under the high patronage of the Ambassador France to Ghana, H.E. Francois Pujolas. The agenda will focus on providing an outlook of the Ghanaian digital economy, with emphasis made on key digital platforms in the Ghanaian industry.
