Warande Lecture

Focus on sustainability

The Warande Lecture is organized every fall on the university campus, near the Oude Warande park. Through the Warande Lecture, the organizers want to promote debate on sustainability issues in the province of Noord-Brabant. A vision as to how Brabant could be made sustainable, and what strategies could be used to realize this vision, are important aspects in this context. Speakers are challenged to link their vision to current developments and decisions which are or should be taken at present.
