Upcoming: Broker Day 2019

22. Juli 2019 - 11:37

Bye bye Calimero! This is the title of our Broker Day, which will take place on 6 November 2019 (13:00–18:00) in the Hague at the Bazaar of Ideas, where the Broker’s office is located. After two earlier Broker Days – in 2013 (on inequality, with former Minister Lilianne Ploumen as keynote speaker) and in 2014 (on decent work, with former Vice President Lodewijk Asscher as keynote speaker) – The Broker is now devoting its Broker Day to discussing the question: How can the Netherlands rise up from its ‘Calimero complex’ to become a major player in sustainable and inclusive development worldwide?
