De Nieuwe Liefde
Locally Speaking is an English spoken talk show on Dutch local news. And we are back, with a vengeance!
Are you clueless who to vote for? Always on top of the news in your own country but completely left out when your Dutch friends are discussing current affairs? Annoyed that we still don’t have that Sunday paper? We will help you again.
The Amsterdam Council Elections are coming up on the 21st of March and all EU-residents and non-EU residents living here for at least 3 years get a vote.
In this edition of Locally Speaking we will cover main election themes, discuss the differences between parties and tell you all about the MIP’s (most important politicians).
In between you can relax and listen to an ancient tale by professional storyteller and Myths & Music curator Simon Hodges.
Find out which parties are most inclusive for newcomers, what you should vote if you plan on buying property or starting your own company and which party will install the most green spots in town. Tonight we will provide you with enough ammo to join the Monday morning banter around the coffee machine at work and be a well informed voter.
There are drinks and a DJ, plenty of room for questions and we will definitely expect you back on the 21st of March when De Nieuwe Liefde is turned into a voting booth as well.
With: Floris Vermeulen (political science) and journalists Robin Pascoe (Dutchnews.nl), Ruben Koops (Het Parool), and Tracy Metz (John Adams Institute).
Hosted by Jeanette Rodd with beats & tunes by MISS D’ISSI.
