In Amsterdam the event will take place in the Rialto cinema from 16:00 onwards. First the documentary ‘Appetite for destruction’ will be shown. You’ll get an insight in the palm-oil industry, its effects on local communities and the health implications.
After the movie a video message from Dirk-Jan Oudshoorn and Alexandra Vosmaer and a presentation from Farwiza Farhan (FFN Laureate 2016) will be driving an interactive discussion about palm-oil and its alternatives. Dirk-Jan, Alexandra and Farwiza deal with the palm-oil issue in Indonesia on a daily basis, so you can ask them all your burning questions!
Registration is not necessary, but recommended!
