Is working as an expat a choice for life or is there an expiry date? How long to stay and when/how to go are crucial questions for the open discussion.
In a subsequent workshop, you will be invited to elaborate new ways of transmitting your knowledge and experience to the next generation of aid workers.
At 13.30, “Lost in Transition?”: one of the exciting panel discussions you can’t miss on the 28 October at the Forum cinfo 2016!

Destination: Iran

The Shah Mosque of Isfahan (Iran) is one of the everlasting masterpieces of architecture in Iran. With its 18 million bricks and 475’000 tiles, the mosaic represents a full palette of seven colours: when the light hits its surface, you experience sun, surface- and underwater all at once. No wonder it is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site! The Mosque’s majestic construction began in 1611 and was renamed after one of the most “unusual” modern revolutions – the Iranian Revolution of 1979 – which had an immense impact internationally, profoundly changing the image of Islam.

Working and living in fragile contexts

Sad events such as the recent bombing of an aid convoy in Syria remind us of the importance of security, more specifically, feeling safe in different contexts. This topic will be addressed in a panel discussion at the Forum cinfo. How is security perceived in different countries? Watch this video – you might be surprised.

Additional individual interviews with hiring organisations can be set up; more information will follow if you are selected to participate in this workshop.
