Best Zagreb moments

Dear Humphrey Fellows, partners, speakers, colleagues, supporters of #Humphrey40 Zagreb event, we want to say one warm- Thank you. As we are in the process of cleaning up spaces, banners, e-mails, reports, photos, video materials and emotions, we want to emphasize once again that this Humphrey platform is OUR collective effort and it would not be as magnificent as it is without each one of you.

Humphrey Fellows Alumni from Eastern Europe accomplished designed goals for the Regional H.H. Humphrey alumni conference and networking event at Zagreb, Croatia titled- Brain Gain in the Balkans: Economic and Development Strategies for a Better Future. 

This event represents combination of knowledge, expertise, passion projects, unusual conversations, and versatile stakeholders with an aim to create and accelerate positive narrative and fruitful connections so immensely needed in the 21st century.

We opened Humphrey Alumni Network for youth and everyone who wanted to join. We gathered high school students, professors, researchers, businessman, professionals from different fields. We had a total of 20 speakers, 1 panel, 3 workshops.  Total number of countries participating was 8. The youngest attendee was 19, and the oldest was 70.  We caught up with all spaces and now it is time to show all of you how it was through the lens of our photographer. Here is to a next one, bigger and brighter with a wish that you stick along for another spectacular ride! Humphrey Alumni Zagreb team
