The ETC 2020 Plenary Meeting, originally slated to be held in Copenhagen and generously hosted by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), will now take place as a virtual gathering due to the ongoing pandemic.  

From 9 to 11 June, the Global ETC Team will warmly welcome ETC partners and registered guests to an online space. Here, participants will turn on their web cameras and engage in exciting discussions about the ETC to cover current challenges, recent successes and promising opportunities for future directions. 

Two to three sessions will be held each day with a total daily engagement of three hours. A break of fifteen minutes will occur between sessions every day. Each day’s sessions will run in the European afternoon to accommodate participants in various time zones. The first day will start at 14:30 Central European Time (CET) sharp while the other days will start at 14:45 CET sharp. We encourage you to join 15 minutes early to access the online platform and get used to the features.
