Voting Sustainably: myth or truth?

About this event

In this election special, which is held on international women’s day and hosted by an all-women’s team, we will explore how sustainability is (or is not) on the agenda of the Dutch political parties. We will discuss not only what the important topics are, but also shine a light on how these topics are approached in the main political parties plans for 2021-2025.

Voter or not, this is your chance to learn more about how sustainability shapes the Dutch political landscape. It clarifies different standpoints and sharpens your thinking around sustainability in the upcoming elections. As part of the webinar, we will break up in small groups to discuss various key topics. For this webinar, some experts of the Springtij Forum are invited and will be in the break-out rooms to promote a lively discussion.
