The afternoon programme is filled with different interesting speakers and themes. The aspect ‘sustainability’ runs through it as a common thread . The afternoon programme lasts from 15.15h until 18.15h, after this an appero will be served until the beginning of the evening programme for the leaving, staying and coming visitors of the evening programme.
