Europe Readr launches in the Netherlands

Amsterdam, 22 September - Ambassador Štiglic launched the Slovenian Presidency's flagship cultural and promotional project Europe Readr in the Netherlands, together with Daria Bouwman, the President of EUNIC Netherlands, in OBA Amsterdam.

The kick-off event started with the official opening of the Europe Readr reading pavilion, made by the students of Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment TU Delft.

Ambassador Štiglic thanked the students and mentors for the remarkable art-installation, which will adorn OBA until 4 October, then travel to the North, and at the end to Delft, thus bringing Europe Readr's main message "Open a book for a better future" all over the Netherlands.

The launch was followed by the very intriguing and entertaining Talk Show on #TheFutureOfLiving, the future of Europe, and the world we want to live in, with exceptional international speakers: Marieke Eyskoot (NL), Marek Šindelka (CZ), Drago Jančar (SI), and Georg Vrachliotis (DE/EE) - moderated by Rogier Elshout.
