UNU-GEST hosted an alumni event in Maputo on December 13 at the Mozambican Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Action. The event brought together thirteen of the fourteen Mozambique alumni as well as two of the three fellows that will join the UNU-GEST academic programme in January 2018. This was the second event of the UNU-GEST Mozambique Alumni Association where the alumni cooperation was further cemented and served as a platform for former UNU-GEST fellows from Mozambique to get together, strategise and present their work on the Mozambican alumni plan.

 Pétur Waldorff, Senior Researcher at UNU-GEST and Anna Guðrún Aradóttir, Project Manager at UNU-GEST, represented UNU-GEST at the alumni meeting. The meeting also served as a networking opportunity for Mozambique Alumni as Dr. Esmeralda Mariano of the Eduardo Mondlane University’s Centre for the Coordination of Actions on Gender (CeCAGe) visited the event as a special guest.
