What’s trust got to do with migration?
Wednesday, 11 May 2016, 16:00 - 17:30
UNOG Library Events Room B-135
Palais des Nations, Geneva
With migration on the rise, individuals from different walks of life are led to encounter one another. These encounters can often lead to confrontation, mistrust or simply indifference. They can also lead to enriching encounters. How to build trust to transform those unlikely encounters into enriching ones is what this Human Library is all about, linking the personal experience to a global phenomenon.
The human library will present 6 “Human Books” who will share their personal stories, each focusing on different issues related to migration and the importance of trustbuilding. Open a chapter of their stories and get inspired, equipped, and connected through their experiences.
