IFUW Conference in Istanbul: UWE regional meeting sunday 18th august

Aside Posted on Updated on

The Turkish Association of University Women is honoured to invite you to the 31st IFUW Conference to be held from August 16th to the 21st, 2013,in Istanbul, Turkey. Members of the Turkish Association of University Women are looking forward to hosting you and to making your stay pleasant and enjoyable. The Congress will be held in Kadir Has University Convention Center. The topic of the Conference is ”WOMEN’S ROLE in ACHİEVİNG SUSTAINABLE FUTURE; education, urbanisation,violence, human rights”. The congress center offers convenient facilities, allowing you to select your favorite topics among the parallel sessions, visit the exhibitions and find space for networking with your peers. Let’s get together in Istanbul where East meets West, to share our experiences, to start new friendships, and to work together on ideas on how to make a meaningful difference in the lives of less fortunate women. Together we can build the roadmap of IFUW for the future.

Istanbul, once upon a time the capital city of the Eastern Roman Empire and later the capital city of Byzantium, became finally capital of the Ottoman Empire after 1453. Istanbul is a magnificent place to visit: practically an open air museum, Istanbul carries the remnants
of her various historical inheritances, delighting history buffs and layman alike. Whether it is historical places of worship, palaces and fortresses, or world class museums – you can find it here. Istanbul is also home to some of the most breathtaking scenery and natural beauty – the Bosphorus Strait cuts through the city dividing Istanbul into Asia and Europe. A boat ride on the Bosphorus will expose a whole different side to the city and its architecture.

And whether you are into cultural paraphernalia or just in need of a wardrobe make-over, Istanbul will have you covered on the shopping side too.
This big mysterious city has something to offer to everyone. On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, we welcome you to Istanbul and we look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Please stay tuned as we roll out more details about the 2013 IFUW conference in Istanbul.

The UWE meeting is on the 18th of August during lunchtime, 12.30 till 14.40. As the available time is short we will have a limited agenda.
