Pe lângă multele (din păcate) evenimente cu românii din diaspora implicaţi în tot felul de poveşti „oteviste” prin lume, avem plăcerea să informăm publicul de online iubitor şi despre un eveniment extrem de interesant organizat în Boston, Statele Unite.
Este vorba despre conferinţa „Romania 2020: What We Can Do For Romania In The Next Decade” organizată de GRSP Society (Global Romanian Students and Young Professionals Society) în Boston, 4-6 Decembrie, 2009. Desigur, evenimentul este -probabil – mult mai interesant pentru românii care locuiesc în State în această perioadă. totuşi, credem că este util şi pentru noi, cei care trăim pe meleagurile autohtone 🙂
În continuare iată câteva informaţii despre această conferinţă şi despre organizaţia GRSP (în limba engleză).

The idea emerged in 2006 from the desire to enable connections among people who work on similar issues/fields but live in different locations. The founding conference was organized by RHIYS in Budapest, Hungary in November 2008. This conference gathered more than 50 students and young professionals coming from over 12 countries and enabled discussions on the content and activity of GRSPSociety. The association is currently being registered in Bucharest, Romania. Throughout 2009 we have been working on establishing and activating Working Groups on various issue-ares/fields. The 2nd Annual Conference will take place in Boston, USA (Harvard & MIT) in December 2009. We hope that motivated people can contribute to Romania’s development from wherever they are by being involved in GRSPSociety.
