The Bread & Brains Lunch Series creates an informal meeting place for representatives of (international) organisations, NGOs, knowledge institutes, private sector, government and others to connect and discuss issues in the field of international cooperation, development, and peace and justice. Prominent speakers from or working in the Netherlands share their views, while visitors enjoy an organic lunch and engage in the lively debate.
