We welcome you to join the opening of the Partos Innovation Festival, which is themed around Inclusive Civic Power! Our exquisite festival host, Lynn Zebeda, will kick off the day and guide the live and online audience through a unique plenary program. Start the day with us as we walk through the program and set the tone for our festival theme together with Bart Romijn, Director of Partos.
Our first lightning talk of the day is from Pascalle Grotenhuis on Feminist Leadership. Pascalle Grotenhuis is Director Social Development and Ambassador for Gender Equality at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She will shine a light on the Dutch ministry’s (and her own) position on Feminist Leadership and a feminist Foreign policy.
The second lightning talk is from Chihiro Geuzebroek. As a multidisciplinary artist, public speaker, writer, organizer and trainer in decolonial and Indigenous Climate Justice perspectives, this talk promises to shake some ground. Chihiro often includes Indigenous arts, poetry and music elements in her work and performances. In other words, an inspirational highlight with valuable reflections on our roles and positions within Climate justice and development cooperation.
