#FIGT2024 — Early Bird Registration is Now Open!

06 Mar 2024 10:13 AM | Anonymous

Fewer sessions, but powerful topics

The #FIGT2024 program, Momentum: Moving forward together, is finally ready to be shared, and Early Bird Registration is now open!

As we enter the final weeks of preparation, enthusiasm is growing. This year’s FIGT Forum, on 20 - 21 April, 2024, will be shorter than our previous conferences, but we are offering a variety of powerful topics and speakers, as well as opportunities for our community to gather. We are hopeful that many of you will join, contribute to our collective knowledge, share experiences and learn from those who will be speaking and attending. Besides the speaker sessions, we will also have a virtual space where you can make plans to meet up and carry on the conversations — obviously, what would an FIGT gathering be without that?


Our keynote speaker is Dr Hossein Hassani, a highly accomplished and skilled data scientist, academic, and researcher with over 15 years of extensive experience working with national, international, and multicultural organizations, research institutes, and academia. Dr Hassani will take us on a journey to explore the fascinating — and sometimes unsettling — world of Artificial Intelligence. This fast developing field may not seem to be directly relevant to our ‘globally mobile’ community per se, but it is and it will continue to impact our lives.

As well as Dr Hassani, the #FIGT2024 Forum will feature:

  • a speaker talking about unplanned transitions — preparing for and living through mobility changes without the preparation that so many of us make when moving from one place to another;
  • a speaker who will share tips for handling trauma in our lives and in the lives of those around us, helping us reach feelings of safety;
  • a panel discussing challenges for people who move without their families and how we can best support them;
  • a presentation on the value of advocating for neurodivergent children and children with special needs at international schools;
  • a session about the challenges faced by migrating families — proving an increased need for improved understanding of different cultures and countries, and;
  • a session that focuses on the strengths and skills associated with a globally mobile life.


They say that variety is the spice of life. And our community knows that variety is the one constant in our lives. So we encourage you to join us — come explore the variety of topics in #FIGT2024 and the varied population of our community. You can find details of the program here. And don’t forget, Early Bird Registration is now open! Take advantage of the discount and sign up before the Early Bird Registration closes on 20 March 2024.
