10 October: Meet and Greet event + TED Countdown

Get to know Scientists4Future NL, a self-organised, self-initiated alliance of scientists from Dutch universities and research institutes. We’re having a Meet & Greet at 16:00, October 10th, where we will explain who we are, what we do, and how you can get involved. To inspire you further, we are also hosting a TEDx Countdown viewing, where we will show and discuss a curated selection of TED-like talks by scientists, activists, entrepreneurs, artists and others.
