Reflection: National Sustainability Debate

12 March 2018

On Friday the 23rd of February we organised the National Sustainability Debate ‘Limits to Limits’. This was a Dutch event where over 100 participants and 6 panel members from all over the country participated in a discussion about how far we’re willing to take sustainability in our (daily) lives. Among other things, we’ve talked about who should be taking the lead in the sustainability transition and whether sustainability should become an obligated part of our education curricula or not. With sometimes passionate pleas from the audience it became a very interactive and fun debate. We already have plenty ideas for a next debate and are looking forward to our next edition! Below you can find some pictures of the event.
