Meetings and Events

The group organises an annual general meeting, each time hosted by a different VDF member and local partners. These encounters are essential not only to establish and plan new projects but also to discover the local context and partners of each VDF member.
Along with the internal discussions, the group always organises public events to share the reflections and projects with the audience, local professionals, students, press, etc
