Future Scientists Webinar
In November 2022, the Netherlands became the 6th country in the world with a concrete plan to reduce the use of the fossil material peat in horticulture. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how this happened and what we can learn from this story. These take home messages should also apply to other projects beyond the world of horticulture.
Topics covered by this webinar:
- What’s the problem with peat extraction?
- How to tell this story to different audiences? Which of the arguments will catch on with which target audience?
- What’s happening internationally? Which cultural and political differences influence the success chances of different approaches?
- Top-down or bottom-up? How can you achieve more impact?
