SLE TRAINING 10th anniversary celebration and Ambassadors' Workshop 2015

In 2015, SLE TRAINING celebrated the 10th anniversary of its founding. Over these 10 years, the SLE trained more than 700 international alumni in development studies, helping them to forge contacts and expand their expertise together with other participants. The 10-year anniversary was an opportunity to look back and reflect on the progress the programme has made, but also to think about its further development and strategies for the future. With these aims in mind, the SLE TRAINING Ambassadors' Workshop took place on the 26th September 2015, as part of the anniversary celebrations. 15 alumni from all continents and disciplines took place in this six-hour workshop, discussing ideas, hopes and strategies for future collaborations.

Here is a link to detailed information on the workshop.
