Welcome to the second edition of Global Labs, foraus' participatory dialogues where students from the university of Geneva and the Graduate Institute have the opportunity to collaborate, receive insights from- and exchange their ideas with professionals from the International Geneva in a one-day workshop and to publish a policy brief on a specific global health topic!
For this year's edition we will explore what measures the international community, and Switzerland in particular should adopt to strengthen the prevention of future infectious diseases crises and halt their rise by 2030.
Register here until 09.03.2022* to our one-day workshop to discuss and collectively formulate innovative policy recommendations to protect the world from future infectious diseases crises. You will have the chance to (1) exchange with thematic experts from the international Geneva, (2) further develop your competencies in policy writing & public speaking, and (3) co-author our final project output** in the form of a policy brief.
The latter will be shared with competent Swiss authorities and relevant organizations within international Geneva (find here the last edition’s results on the topic of non communicable diseases (NCDs)).
*Number of participants is limited. Participants are accepted on a first come first served basis.
**Participation in the full process after the workshop is optional but highly recommended.
