After our 2023 edition ‘The Future of Energy,’ that was all about celebrating the power of women in shaping the future. We now invite you to an all-inclusive (not woman-exclusive) boat tour with water role models: ‘The future is water’ on Thursday, September 19th, 2024.

In the Netherlands and in our North Sea Canal Area water is of utmost importance. For the companies in the port, but also we hope you gain a deeper understanding of the sense of urgency in terms of scarcity of drinking water. Imagine yourself surrounded by like-minded, inspiring water professionals on a boat tour.

Dorine Bosman, Chief Investment Officer, provides direction in boosting Amsterdam as a sustainable European seaport and in stimulating and accelerating the energy transition, circular activities and industries, to reduce CO2 emissions in the port and in the region.

Sabine Stuiver, Co-founder of Hydraloop, is a driving force in water conservation and circular economy solutions. With 8+ years of experience, she advocates for a water-smart society, empowering consumers and businesses.

Our panellists will eleborate on understanding the true Value of Water and highlight the importance of climate adaptation, circularity and industrial water use. How we can transition from a linear to a circular water smart society and what changes do we need to make in our investment planning and procurement processes? Which skills are needed for this transition?
