Meet Young Experts


Meet Young Experts

Next week Friday, the Netherlands Embassy and GNBCC will welcome over 26 Young Experts working in the West-Africa region in both Agrofood and WASH. This will be the start of the Young Expert Programme Intervision Weekend in Accra, a weekend to exchange knowledge on both the sector(s) and professional development. The Young Expert Programme offers the opportunity to young Dutch professionals to gain experience abroad and offers young local professionals the opportunity to gain experience with working in an international environment through Dutch organisations.


GNBCC would like to invite all interested members to join this interactive event. The event will start with a warm welcome by H.E. Ron Strikker, followed by insights from the activities by the Embassy in the Agrofood, WASH and Trade sector. The Young Experts will also present themselves and their line of work. Afterwards, all participants will join for the matchmaking session. Each organisation will be matched to 4 Young Experts in a speed dating session, with each 10 – 15 minutes to get to know each other. The morning will be closed with a lunch for all participants.
