Improving dutch-french relations with a ‘Kijkdoos’

By 1 July, 2017Uncategorized

Recently I was invited to participate to the ‘Hackathon #404 Territory Not Found’, a 3-day event organized by the Métropole Européenne de Lille and the Réseau franco-néerlandais.

Students and young professionals from France and The Netherlands brainstormed together to develop new ways to strengthen ties between the Lille Metropolis in the north of France and southern dutch cities. And gathered together with representatives of the dutch and french economic and cultural sector to talk about these subjects.

It was a great cross-pollination of different ideas, backgrounds, cultures and competences. Everyone worked hard and came up with great proposals! Thanks to all the participants for making it such an inspiring time. And especially my team-members Thomas, Jesse, Björn and Edouard. Great that our proposal for ‘Le Kijkdoos’ won the pitch and will become an actual project! 🙂
