In light of the coronavirus situation (COVID-19), the Preparation for Retirement Seminar scheduled on 23-27 March 2020 at Palais des Nations in Geneva has been postponed.
All confirmed participants will be informed of new dates which will most likely happen in the fall of 2020.
Registration open in INSPIRA for UN Secretariat Staff - reference LMS-1538-20.
For other Organizations, registration through Focal Point.

At the end of the programme, you will be able to:
