The city is alive and features prominently on the agenda. On yours too? Block Monday 28 October in your diary and join us for the Dag van de Stad (Day of the City) 2019 in The Hague. During this annual event, all urban professionals meet for a day of inspiration and share knowledge for economically strong, sustainable, future-proof and liveable cities.
Under the title ‘How brave are you?!’, we provide a platform for courageous entrepreneurs, architects, theatre makers, scientists, representatives of civic organisations, active residents and administrators. The one thing all these people have in common is their guts, cojones and bravura. The Dag van de Stad offers a warm welcome to urban visionaries who dare to see beyond the obvious. To people who are not afraid to think outside the box, keep off the beaten track and map out a new course. Showing courage also means standing for what you believe in even in difficult circumstances, for example when you are threatened, intimidated or mocked. How do you stay the course both professionally and personally?
The Dag van de Stad is a day both for and of the urban professional and that is why the programme is created together with you. The backbone of this year's programme consists of eight inspiring formats. Among many proposals the Jury will select the best and they will be presented on this website as soon as possible.
Still not sure if you want to be a participant of The Dag van de Stad? Watch this video and be convinced by Robert van Asten, alderman of The Hague:
Based on all the great entries we hope to receive, a great programme will be put together, complemented by key speakers who will share their authoritative knowledge and insights in ‘last lectures’. The programme will eventually be announced in its entirety in the summer. But why wait to register and run the risk of missing out? And now that you are here, why not register now as a visitor to the Dag van de Stad 2019!
It goes without saying that we will keep you posted in the months to come. Watch this site for updates on confirmed speakers and other relevant developments.
