EUD`s visit to WFD Congress


Several Representatives of the EUD have attended WFD GA and the XVII Congress in Istanbul, Turkey from 27 July to 1 August. Firstly, focusing on the staff, Mark Wheatley took part in the WFD GA as a Official Teller. And David Hay contributed to the WFD media coverage with video reports.

Now, regarding the EUD Board, Dr Markku Jokinen (President), Dr Gergely Tapolczai and Louise "Lolo" Danielsson, they were all able to use the congress as an opportunity to network. We also held a networking session, to prepare for the conference in 11th November 2015.

Our work here reflected very well with the WFD.
