Rising sea levels, a widening wealth gap, and the need for an energy transition are challenges too great for any single generation to tackle alone. What if, instead of merely passing the baton, different generations combined their unique strengths right now? At Resilient Delta, we believe in the power of working collectively across disciplines and generations to create lasting change. Join us on Thursday November 30th at the Generation Delta conference, where seasoned experts and the next generation of changemakers merge their experiences and perspectives to help shape a collective legacy of resilience.
During the conference best-selling author Ruud Veltenaar and climate activist Aniek Moonen will guide you through the program. Their mission? To ensure you uncover fresh viewpoints and ignite insights that resonate with your unique personal and professional journey.
The afternoon workshops are designed to unite diverse generations, with each participant contributing unique perspectives, expertise, and backgrounds. Whether you’ve been a part of the Resilient Delta community for years or are intrigued by our new collaborative approach, there’s a workshop tailored just for you!
Explore our extensive network of academics, civil servants, global corporations, and external partners during the opening lunch and social mixer—this could be your chance to meet someone to collaborate with and amplify the impact of your efforts. Amidst the serious discussions, anticipate moments of laughter with Club Haug Comedian Alina Sharipova. We’ll wrap up the day on a high note with a musical performance from Rotterdam-based Singer-Songwriter Nana M. Rose.
