The meetings will be hosted by Andrea Maia in Rio de Janeiro, Fernanda Levy in São Paulo, Dulce Nascimento in Belo Horizonte, Paul Mason (online) and Ana Maria Maia Gonçalves and IMI Executive Director, Irena Vanenkova (online) in the different locations.

These meetings will follow the IMI meetings held in Brazil in 2014 and 2015 (Rio de Janeiro & São Paulo), and in New York, Paris and Singapore, where we had very stimulating and inspiring discussions related to the development of mediation and the values and role of IMI.

The leadership of IMI has no doubt of the important role of Brazil in the development of mediation in the world and that the next two meetings in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte will bring additional ideas adapted to the Brazilian context.

The meeting is by invitation only, but you are welcome to bring guests. Please RSVP with your name and the name and email address of your guests by email to [email protected], and indicate in the email if there are any questions you would like to ask, or any issues you would like to discuss at the meeting.

If you cannot be there in person we will try to arrange for participation via Skype or other videoconference service. Please do let us know if you need this service and we will let you know whether it will be possible.

With warm regards,
