Dear students, alumni, colleagues & friends of ComDev Malmö!

ComDev was founded in 2000 and we are celebrating the program’s 15th anniversary this year!

We would like to take this opportunity to invite students, alumni, colleagues and friends of the program to a special 2-day event in Malmö on 18 & 19 September 2015.

The event will involve keynote speakers, round tables, interviews & surprises. And we would like to source as much content from our network, which means that we need your input!

If you follow the link to the pre-registration form you will be able to submit your ideas, potential contributions and links to your projects and organization

Since our MA in Communication for Development is still one of the few programs in the field blending on-site campus learning with an interactive online format, we are also encouraging you to connect virtually: Do you have a great story from that seminar in 2004 that you want to share? Stashed away some photos from an event in 2007?

Do get in touch!
You can also simply write to comdev (at) mah (dot) se – but make sure you receive all the updates on our social media channels. We will update the ComDev Portal regularly and make sure you join almost 800 ‘Fans’ of our ComDev facebook page and more than 200 alumni at our LinkedIn group Malmö University Communication for Development Alumni!

The event will take place in the brand new ‘Niagara’ building of the university right next to Malmö central station and the new Malmö Live quarter. Your visit will be rewarded by enjoying the changed and changing city of Malmö!

As an added incentive, we will provide 5 travel grants to non-European resident alumni worth 10.000 SEK each!

So what are the next steps?

  • Mark the 18 & 19th September in your diary!
  • Complete the short pre-registration form
  • Get in touch with us with suggestions, from an NGO round-table to an international donor panel
  • Share your memories, from a short quote on what ComDev has meant in your life and career to sharing photos, blog posts and more

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Malmö in September!

The ComDev team

Comdev changed my Life. I was the communications Manager of a waste management company when in 2009 hen I finished the course. it helped me a great deal as I embarked on various public education and environmental communication activities, teaching people and encouraging them on the need to imbibe good sanitary habits.
my tuition in media, culture and ICT for development helped a great deal, I traveled to all parts of the country, educating people on behalf of my company, mosques, market centres, chiefs palaces and churches were the places where the public education activities took place.
