Program 2017

Several elements of activities will take place in Autumn 2017 in the Province of Zeeland and the city of Bergen op Zoom. The aim of these activities is to illuminate the Canadian War efforts in The Netherlands during WW2 and to connect these efforts with present day issues concerning peace and freedom. In this matter it is important to get the younger generations involved in freedom and its vulnerability. In  the years to come, we will build up an appropriate program. Below you will find the program 2017.

BERGEN OP ZOOM 21 OKTOBER 2017

CANADAYS LECTURE

An evening by and for the youth
Program:
07:30 pm Welcome
08:00 pm Start Lecture
10:00 pm End, with drinks afterwards

The lecture is about peace and freedom. While  these values are universal, their application is not. Nor can peaceful and free societies take these values for granted. Everyone, young and old, has a responsibility for the perpetuation of these values. The lecture is inspired by events occurring toward the end of WW2 and Canada’s efforts to liberate the Netherlands. The lecture will be provided by students of secudary schools in Bergen op Zoom and former commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, Lieutenant-General (Ret’d) Ton van Loon. For this event, we are partnering with the Embassy of Canada in The Netherlands. Everybody is invited.
