Save the Date: A European Meetup Is Being Planned! Will You Join us?

18 Jul 2023 11:51 PM | Anonymous

After the successful meetup that took place in Barcelona last year, plans are being made for another gathering in The Hague, Netherlands, from August 20-22. The meetup is open to both FIGT members and nonmembers. 

The program will have diverse elements, and we encourage participants to join all of the events/sessions to maximize the opportunity to connect with other attendees. However, there is a maximum we can accommodate. Please complete the registration form by August 14. Please note, if we reach the maximum before then, we will have to close the list. So, first come, first served! 

When we heard that one of the members who attended the meetup event in Barcelona was attending an event in August near Rotterdam - the thought wheels started spinning. FIGT NL, together with two FIGT members, have put together a draft program, the goal being to meet, share, and connect. Details are still being finalized but will be similar to the following:

Sunday, August 20

16:00 – 21:00 Buffet of snacks & drinks and greetings

Monday, August 21

10:00 – 12:00 Morning Session

Voices of young TCKs sharing what has worked, what have they missed, and what would have been welcome during their global lives to help ease the transition into young adulthood. A panel discussion moderated by Kate Berger, a Child and Adolescent Psychologist with 15 years of experience supporting TCKs.

12:00 – 13:30 Lunch 

13:30 – 15:30  Afternoon Session

Round Table: All participants will have the opportunity to exchange information, ask for advice, or seek cooperation possibilities 

16:00 – 17:30 Boat ride with snacks 

18:30 Dinner (at own cost)

Tuesday, August 22 

9:00 – 11:00   Breakfast Morning Session

Research focus 

Are you interested in attending? The Expatriate Archive Centre and ACCESS are generously sponsoring a portion of the expenses. We are finalizing details for additional shared costs, and our aim is to keep participant’s contribution at or below 50 Euros/pp. As mentioned, space is limited, so please click here to register as soon as possible. 

Please send any questions to Kate Berger, Kristine Racine, or Deborah Valentine at netherlands@figt.org.
