The WSF is an NGOs platform that was born from the idea that association working on similar topics, like human rights, conflict resolution, sustainable global development, women empowerment and other similar issues can strengthen their impact and outreach by collaborating on specific projects. In light of this philosophy, we are happy to say we hosted our second Networking Drinks on the 25th April 2018, where people could meet, share their ideas and start exploring potential collaborations.
The event was attended by professionals, students and other members of the public who had a real interest in working together and cooperating to make the world a better place. As per our tradition, attendants could suggest ideas for projects and initiatives that the WSF can engage with the future, as well as offering to volunteer with our NGO platform. In fact we give our special thanks to our team of volunteers who joined us yesterday, not only helping with the event but also hosting small informal round-tables on topic like international security and gender issues, for those who wanted to delve a bit deeper in these questions.
As there surely seems to be an interest, we hope our networking drinks can become a regular event. In the meantime stay tuned for our coming campaign on protecting journalists everywhere in the world!
