Pitztop x Windle: Future Focus

13 May @ 17:00 19:30

Future Focus is the place to be if you want to gain insights in the importance of a host community to support refugees to move forward and want to explore what you can do.

As members of the Hub, we joined forces in a story telling event. And we invite our fellow members and their networks to find inspiration and a call to action in the talks of refugees about their way forward and the value of the host community in this journey.

Join us at The Hague Humanity Hub for an afternoon filled with inspiring talks, a workshop, and a networking opportunity. Get inspired by the resilience of refugees to find a new professional carreer and gain yourself a conversation about the power of the host community, how you can engage, what you find important while supporting and what you can bring to the table. Bringing peace and justice into the practicalities of our daily lives. See you there!
