Our Journey after Swedish Institute Management Programme

Below is an article from Olga Ryabova who organised the event “Our journey after SIMP” in Moscow on 1 October!

On the 1st of October the alumni of Swedish Institute and their friends from like-minded communities gathered in Impact Hub Moscow for the re-union called «Our Journey after Swedish Institute Management Program».

Despite heavy Moscow traffic that evening practically everyone came on time.

The evening started with the welcome notice of Olga Ryabova, SIMP alumni who co-initiated the meeting, and presentation of the hosts – Impact Hub Moscow.

The key presentation conducted by Olga Sitnik, co-founder of ExploRussia, was devoted to the sustainable tourism. Many new eye-openers were good to think about and reflect.

The OpenMic format allowed everyone who wanted to held the floor to share his/her story about Swedish Institute, Sweden, the lessons learned and taken home. Occasionally we were able to recover practically the whole story of SIMP (Swedish Institute Management Program) starting with 2007 and looking forward into the 2016 with the current SIMP group 2015-2016.
