Talking about the future – a series of discussions on Facebook

Alumni Association is starting a new project under the joint title “Conversations about the future”. We want to include every interested person in the discussion about the future of Poland and Poles.

Together, we will reflect on the future of education, science, economy, business, the third sector, culture, international affairs, security, self-governance, 21st century society and more.
And all this will be available on Facebook, where we have opened a special and dedicated streaming channel: https://www.facebook.com/StowarzyszenieAlumni/

Meetings over a coffee

In time of epidemics, home quarantine and in response to your signals, I would like to invite you to … Meeting over a coffee.

The meeting over a coffee is a virtual meeting on the ZOOM platform. With a good coffee and a cake, we will be able to meet virtually and see who is a neighbor in my city or region.
The meeting over a coffee will take place every Saturday and Sunday at 12:00. Invitations will be addressed to Alumni from a given voivodship, which will allow our members to initiate acquaintances that may translate into specific projects after the epidemic.
Members of the Alumni Association are present in all 16 voivodships of Poland. And each meeting is for a different voivodship, which means that we will be meeting for the next 8 weeks.

More information and details about individual meetings can be found on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/239625633787701/) and on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/events/spotkanieprzykawie/).
