Geneva: Visit to the Permanent Mission of the NL to the UN

The registration deadline has expired.

It has been a while since the last time the University of Groningen (UG) alumni gathered in Geneva. Since then, plenty of new alumni have moved to the city and it is time to meet again in an interesting location: The Permanent Representation of the Netherlands to the United Nations in Geneva (PR UN Geneva), where a few of your fellow alumni work at the moment. Together with the Alumni Relations & Fundraising of the UG they warmly welcome you to visit their offices and you may hear about the latest updates about their work. Of course, there will also be time to catch up an talk with the other former Groningers.

Also, there is a great chance to visit the headquarters of the United Nations, Palace of Nations during the day. There will be a guided tour to the most important rooms and halls of the Palace, where many important historical negotiations have taken place.
