General Assembly meeting 2016
Thursday, 21 April 2016 - 9:00am to Sunday, 24 April 2016 - 5:00pm
Where: Palma de Mallorca - Balearerna, Spanien
ASF International Dialog and GA Meeting 2016
Architecture Sans Frontièrs International is coordinating efforts with ARC-Peace International to organize this year’s General Assembly Meeting. The GA Meeting will be held and hosted by ARC-Peace in Palma de Mallorca - Balearerna, Spanien, from the 21st to the 24th of April 2016.
The Council for the GA Theme is to undertake a review and analysis of "Refugees Settlements Worldwide", including a comprehensive strategy required for refugee problems to be adequately addressed and resolved.
The 8th of April, our host organisation in Mallorca presented to the board of ASF-Int a new schedule with severe changes in the programme.
The changes, according to the host team, were caused by difficulties solving critical venue's issues with the authorities in Mallorca. As a result of these issues, we managed to preserve the 22nd of April for the GA Meeting, which we on the board of ASF-Int consider the most relevant event. But we would like to inform that the ASF Dialogue will be held on the 21st of April 2016 instead of the Challenging Practice workshop, which will be held on the 23rd instead of the ASF Dialog.
The board of ASF International sincerely apologise for this last-minute change in the programme and regret any confusion that these changes can represent for all our attendees. We hope for a successful and fruitful GA Meeting, however. To make this GA Meeting an international humanitarian architects forum, where great ideas can be discussed despite all barriers and logistics challenges.
Please stay tuned for the final schedule which will be sent by the ASF International Secretary to the attendees of the GA Meeting.
