Think & Drink

Diplomacy & international actors

“Think & Drink” gathers experts from International Geneva and students from Geneva & beyond to create a space where they can exchange about topics relevant to International Geneva in a relaxed setting. Every last Thursday of the month, a guest gives an input-speech about a hotly debated foreign policy topic and opens the floor to an informal discussion.

Come and enjoy a free drink with other young people from International Geneva! 🍹
