A WORD ABOUT FIGT:
FIGT Switzerland, as an affiliate of FIGT, organizes events and meetings to engage the mobile expat community and their service providers. Everyone involved volunteers their expertise to help build a local network and forum of exchange around issues relevant to internationally mobile families.
FIGT has been referred to as a grassroots “think tank” for families who relocate globally. For more than 10 years, it has been the premier advocate and educational resource for families, organizations and service providers, bringing together corporate, diplomatic, academic, military, missionary and NGO sectors to share and develop leading edge research and strategies.
FIGT promotes the positive value of the international experience, and empowers the family unit and those who serve families before, during and after international transitions.
