Flexible Food Court Dinner

Foodhallen, Wilhelminakade 58, 3072 AR Rotterdam
https://foodhallen.nl/

You’ll get a European Bildung Day 2024 badge, your spouse will get one too, and then we’ll go to the famous Rotterdam food court, you’ll buy the food and drinks you want, and whenever you run into somebody else with the badge, you can network and discuss.

And when everybody else sees us with the same badge, they may ask what bildung is and you get a chance to do a bit of PR for bildung (and Europe).

The pre-conference food court dinner in Vilnius in 2023 was a great success, and we’d like to repeat it!
