About this day:
A habitable planet means welfare for poor and rich, for men and women and for present and future generations. That is why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs commits itself to providing access to and sustainable usage of natural resources, for everyone. The Netherlands collaborates with different governments, multilateral institutions, NGO’s, companies and civilians to secure the provision of public goods such as raw materials, water and energy for the future. The most important guidelines in doing so are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), globally determined goals for sustainable development.

In association with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we present Earth at Stake on Sunday the 24th of March. We will screen the documentaries Anthropocene: the Human Epoch, Soyalism and Youth Unstoppable, followed by Q&A’s with experts on relevant topics.
