They will be launching a new series, in which a number of international speakers will climb onto the digital stage to initiate a discussion between renowned experts in various fields. Based on their field of expertise – whether this is banking or anthropology – the speakers will share their perspective on horticulture and how the sector can give shape to the social context in response to the changes that we are being faced with at an accelerated pace.
Anthropologist Jitske Kramer will be next in line in the weekly EAT THIS! webinar series. On Wednesday, June 24, she will discuss the desire and inclination of individuals and groups for change. Her background, eagerness of learning and love of travel has brought her into contact with various cultures and prompted her to make surprising observations from which organisations and groups will benefit in times of transition.
Her fresh perspective as an outsider in the horticultural sector will shine a new light on organisational cultures, behaviour within sectors and leadership. She knows how to translate this into opportunities for the sector and will stimulate participants to give this topic some serious thought and make their voices heard. Aside from giving the participants the opportunity to ask her a few critical questions, she will speak with Hidde Boersma about her observations and how these affect the horticultural sector. Boersma, in turn, will provide insight into his convictions about ecomodernism, which topic will be addressed in detail during the next webinar on 1 July.
