Event Spotlight (1): Remembering The Rwandan Genocide

The Rwandan Genocide that took place from the 7th of April till the 15th of July 1994, cost between five hundred thousand and one million lives. This black page in the history of Rwanda still resonates today, with millions having lost family members or friends. L.S.A. Custodia has invited the Rwandan Ambassador H.E. Jean Pierre Karabaranga to give us more insights into why the genocide happened and what it meant for Rwanda in a broader sense. The lecture will be followed up by a Q&A session, in order to provide you with first-hand information on the Rwandan Genocide. 

The lecture will take place on the 27th of February (18:00 - 19:00) in room 3.16 at the Wijnhaven building.

Event Spotlight (2): Visit to the Dutch Water Authorities

On the 10th of March, L.S.A. Custodia offers students a unique opportunity to broaden their horizon. Together with study organization STUW, we will visit the Dutch Water Authorities. The Dutch Water Authorities is the overarching organisation of the 21 water boards, which are responsible for ensuring that our feet stay dry and make sure we have good quality drinking water. At the same time, the Dutch Water Authorities apply their knowledge worldwide, by providing twenty million people in developing countries with drinking water through their Blue Deal programme. The visit will look at multiple dimensions of water management, including water safety, lobbying, information security and development aid.

After the visit, there will be drinks at Plein. At the drinks, students of Leiden University will have the opportunity to meet students of STUW, the study organisation of the bachelor Water Management of the University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam. 
There are limited spots available, which will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Priority is given to Custodia and STUW members. Please sign up for the event by clicking here!
