The Forum Fulbright Portugal is an annual event which goals are to share ideas, foster debate and facilitate contact between Fulbrighters. Focusing on a central topic, current grantees and alumni will gather to offer their views and their experience as a result of the projects developed under the aegis of the Fulbright Program.

This year, the framing topic of the Forum will be Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. Cultural diversity is a driving force of development, not only with respect to economic growth, but also as a means of leading a more fulfilling intellectual, emotional, and social life – How do Fulbright experiences impact work and life goals?

The event will take place virtually on May 20th at 2pm WEST, and is open to everyone!
