The Hague & Partners hosted a HagueTalks event at the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin earlier this month. The event, which was supported by The Hague Business Agency and The Hague Convention Bureau, was attended by around 50 participants from the global meetings and events industry, NGOs, public and private sector.
HagueTalks is a meeting place for creative minds and game changers in the field of peace and justice. It provides a breeding place for new ideas and perspectives on important and current issues.
The question up for discussion was “How can our global footprints benefit the world?” As the Netherlands is among the leaders in climate change initiatives and The Hague recently scored an ‘A’ grade for its climate policies and ambition to become climate neutral; this proved to be an optimal topic for the discussion.
Kerstin Wünsch, Founder of the She Means Business Conference and Editor in Chief of dfv Mediengruppe: “I feel very inspired. I feel very grateful for this great initiative and this was empowering for me to talk to these women and join forces. Thank you very much for this opportunity.”
Tarek Alsaleh, Founder of FrontlineAid and Capoeira4Refugees: “I really enjoyed it. I love HagueTalks because it has a really cozy atmosphere. It is made with love and you can really see that. Also, the speakers you select, as the audience you can connect really well, you can ask questions, you can hang out and speak with them afterwards.”
