A Report from the Antalya Conference
IAGP President's Report from Antalya
We are delighted to share the highlights of the recently concluded 5th IAGP Mediterranean Regional Conference for Trauma and Disaster in Antalya, Türkiye. Hosted by the IAGP Trauma and Disaster Committee, led by Chair Caner Bingöl, the event brought together participants from 28 countries for three days of engaging discussions and collaborative exploration.
The conference started every day with the Social Dreaming Matrix, setting the tone for a series of insightful sessions, including a Keynote Speech, diverse workshops, panels, and a concluding Large Group session. Throughout, the focus was on the most pressing themes of our challenging and complex times, fostering a shared understanding of the issues we face globally.
Following the conference, the IAGP Board of Directors convened for a two-day meeting to address challenges and assess outcomes since our last meeting in Zurich, June 2023. Applying group interventions, we visualized the integration of ongoing projects and strategically planned short and long-term actions to enhance the benefits for the IAGP Membership. The group interventions proved invaluable in confirming directions and establishing priorities for this phase of the IAGP Board.
In addition, we extend a warm welcome to the new team overseeing the IAGP newsletter. As our primary channel of communication with the entire membership, the newsletter plays a pivotal role in keeping everyone informed and connected. We encourage active participation and anticipate your contributions.
Looking ahead, we invite you to stay tuned for upcoming communications as we continue to navigate the dynamic landscape of our organization. Your engagement and input are integral to the success of the IAGP, and we value your ongoing support.
Heloisa Fleury, IAGP President
