camer vision's aims
through reliable sources to foster a structured reflection on contemporary political topics in Cameroon.
solutions geared to current issues to rethink the future of Cameroon.
recommendations made by web contributors to facilitate the citizen debate in Cameroon.
Camer Vision is a civic initiative which aims to enable all Cameroonian web users to formulate ideas, suggestions and/or solutions concerning political, social, economic and environmental developments in Cameroon.
Camer Vision is not a political party, but Camer Vision is an initiative led by an apolitical civil society.
From a set of hundred of ideas elaborated by Cameroonians, the best will be selected in order to feed the public debate and transform public policies to accelerate the emergence of Cameroon over the next few years.
Camer Vision's ambition is to give a voice to Cameroonians of nationality and origin (thereby including the diaspora) and to become a space of dialogue between those who seek to be more informed and those proposing alternatives to the difficulties the country currently faces.
With a surface area close to 475,000 km², situation in heart of the Gulf of Guinea, “Africa in miniature” is a country known for its exceptional human and natural wealth (with 23 million residents which are particularly entrepreneurial and particularly well trained).
The government’s vision for Cameroon? It was elaborated in 2009 for a horizon of 25-30 years. It aims for “Cameroon: an emerging and democratic country united in its diversity”.
In this perspective, many socio-economic challenges are to take into account in Cameroon.
Camer Vision’s platform constituted an opportunity to discuss and offer ideas.
Participating in the elaboration of proposals for new solutions for Cameroon is simple! You can proceed as follows:
1) Explain what makes you proud of being Cameroonian (100 words maximum)
2) Describe the problem which you are concerned about (150 words maximum)
3) Formulate a solution (250 words maximum)
Make sure that your propositions are synthetic and rigorous, innovative and respectful of all by consulting Camer Vision’s Charter (given below). You can decide to remain anonymous or not.
Following a review by our team, your proposition will be published on our website and up for discussion on the proposed idea(s).
Don’t forget to share our project on social media so that we can all mobilize for a better Cameroon!
