The next "PechaKucha Night” on 31 May is showcasing those that influence “International Geneva”
Speakers including Sami Kanaan (politician and presumed next Mayor of Geneva), Corinne Momal-Vanian (director at the UN Office at Geneva), Celine Van Till (elite Swiss athlete, ambassador for the disabled and author) and Dan Acher (Founder, Happy City Lab) will present their ideas, works and thoughts at the upcoming “International Geneva Pechakucha Night” on Thursday, May 31 at “La Pastorale”, Petit-Saconnex, Geneva. They will be joined by five other speakers who help shape and create the melting pot of Geneva.
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings held in creative cities all around the world, where local and international people get together and share their ideas, works and thoughts — just about anything — in the “PechaKucha” format: 20 images for 20 seconds each. Organized in collaboration with CAGI (Geneva Welcome Centre) and UNOG (United Nations office Geneva) perception change project, the short and visual presentations will be given in French and English.
The event, hosted at the beautiful “La Pastorale” mansion situated at Route de Ferney 106, Geneva (100m from the Place des Nations), will be followed by a Garden Party, with a concert by The Emigrants, food trucks (by the Hamburger Foundation and Saveurs Migrants) and a cash bar with local craft beer. The evening is an opportunity to network and to learn about extraordinary initiatives, entrepreneurship experiences, hidden secrets and the exciting cultural happenings of International Geneva.
The evening will start at 19h00 and finish around 22h00.
