UNHCR Nansen Refugee Awards in Geneva + London / Croatia / Holland

In October 2018 I’ve been invited back to the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Awards in Geneva with the IKEA Foundation. We’ll again be holding meetings with the IKEA Foundation and UNHCR to talk about our partnership and how we can continue to grow, and we’ll have the opportunity to meet with the winner of the Nansen Award (announced Sept 25th 2018) as well.

This time around I’ll be visiting London, Croatia and The Netherlands before and after the trip.
