What is the Annual Grand Meeting?

Hosted by the Danish Refugee Council with support from Danida, the Annual Grand Meeting is a platform to meet, socialize and exchange ideas for representatives from the Afghan and Somali diaspora in Denmark.

The Annual Grand Meeting also host the election of the Advisory Boards for the Diaspora Programme. There are two Advisory Boards: One for Afghanistan and one for Somalia. The general purpose of the boards is to provide inputs and advice for the overall Diaspora Programme and the Diaspora Programme Support (DiPS). In 2019 the 2020/2021 Advisory Boards were elected for two consecutive years, therefore there will not be an election this year.  

You can read more about what the Advisory Boards do here.

Want to volunteer? 

To help ensure a smooth running of the day we have in previous years been lucky to have a team of volunteers on the day. The volunteers help prepare and decorate the rooms, register participants, serve coffee and food and clean up afterwords. 

A volunteer registration list will be made available on this page soon. Until then, if you are interested or have questions send an email to diaspora[at]
