Our projects

                                           

The time is conducive to reflection so Greycells has started a project named “GREY TALKS” to facilitate and promote intergenerational dialogue while respecting social distancing.

At these “GRAY Talks” invited speakers present their take on conjunctural and developmental issues and engage a virtual dialogue with the participants.

GREY Talks are open to the public who is cordially invited to join the following link. Ideally, participants should connect 5 minutes  before the start of the session but can join and leave at any time :
