Femke speaker at VeerStichting symposium, October 7, 2010

23 Jun 2010

October 7-8, the 31st edition of the VeerStichting Symposium will be held. Eckart used to be a great fan of these inspiring get-togethers. Each year, based on an essay competition, 250 Students are elected to join the conference along with 250 representatives from business, governement, science, arts, NGO’s and media.

This year’s theme is ‘can opener’. Opening up cans of new ideas,  breaking out of old habits, creating fresh air. Central question is: how well preserved is our current society and what is the right balance between preserving and renewing? Which surprising visions are we overlooking?

The VeerStichting will stage Value Extracted Tax on October 7th at the Pieterskerk in Leiden, The Netherlands.
