We look forward to a stimulating evening with a variety of ideas and plenty of exchange.

I was last on a project trip in September 2022 and saw how the current crises are affecting Namibia. I will describe successes and failures and outline current challenges and hopes.


Where are you travelling to? Inputs from various speakers, some from Namibia, will provide us with information and perspectives and thus offer a wide space for exchange and suggestions.
