Tea Talk: Sustainability and Collaboration in Holland

Craving more than “small talk” on a regular basis? Come actively engage in stimulating conversation centered around important cultural topics over a cup of tea. CIC Boston is excited to invite you to a reoccurring event called Tea Talk. here at 50 Milk. It is an open tea and conversation event designed for fostering a diverse community.

For August's talk, we're joined by Marloes Jongewaard from the Holland Innovation Network in a talk centered around a history of sustainability and collaboration, and how the Netherlands works with others to make cities and communities more livable.

On this journey to Holland, you will learn about inspiring circular economy initiatives, and how Amsterdam became the bicycle capital of the world (and the first city to have a bicycle mayor!). We’ll go back in history a bit and see how the Dutch’ intrinsic relationship with the water created such an eco-minded and collaborative society.

During the talk, there will be delicious coffee and tea, as well as some snacks from Holland.

The Holland Innovation Network stimulates international cooperation between companies, knowledge institutes, and governments in the fields of innovation, technology, and science. The Network is located in 22 cities worldwide and is part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
