ConnexUs is a global network and coordination platform that creates a collaborative environment for the peacebuilding, humanitarian, development, and public health fields. Through ConnexUs, practitioners, academics, and activists can find out who is working in their community and make real-time connections.
The platform offers public discussion forums and private messaging features to help facilitate secure and open knowledge sharing. By harnessing the power of working together online, organisations can fill in gaps and reduce overlap in their programmes and activities.
With support from the European Union’s Instrument contributing to Stability & Peace, ConnexUs is Partnering with Blogger and Middle belt Nigeria Influencer, Matthew Tegha to amplify his activities, towards Responding to Global & Local Challenges also in amplifying the Voices of other Influencers Around the World.
Matthew Tegha’s project is centered on engagement and learning around preventing the spread of COVID-19 misinformation and disinformation. Additionally, it will encourage collaboration among youths, community members, and groups across dividing lines to identify opportunities to foster peace, thereby promoting social cohesion during the pandemic.
These objectives will be addressed through town hall meetings, youth trainings, community theatre, original videos, and educational articles.
