A silo-busting facilitated networking session with Initiatives of Change Switzerland



Geneva Peaceweek logoWho is who at Geneva Peace Week? Make meaningful connections through innovative networking.

Join us just before the GPW19 Opening Event to get a sense of who is in the room and connect with people whom you would not usually meet, but who are all working for peace in a complementary way!

Rainer Gude, Strategic Partnerships Manager, and Brigitt Altwegg, Programme Manager Trustbuilding, from Initiatives of Change Switzerland will lead you through a process which will allow you to connect with people working on the same themes and in the same geographical areas, as well as to make new unlikely but hopefully enriching encounters. Don’t forget your business cards!

When: Tuesday 5 November 16:00-17:00

Where: Maison de la Paix, in Hall Kogler outside Auditorium 1
