Storytelling Masterclass - 14th of January 2019

Do you think most presentations are boring? They are.
But not if you would use the power of storytelling.

At EWB it is important to share our stories to inspire others and we like all our volunteers to take part in this. So join our interactive masterclass, learn how to avoid boring presentations and how to present your ideas in a an engaging and convincing way. You will learn some theory and will practice actively the principles in small groups.

The masterclass takes place on Monday the 14th of January at our office in Rotterdam. This masterclass will be hosted by EWB-NL chairwoman Petra Beris. Don’t forget to bring a charged phone.

Hang-out: International Potluck Dinner - 9th February 2019

Do you know how many nationalities EWB Netherlands has? Do you want to taste different finger foods and snacks from other countries and share yours yummy treats with others? It is time to kick-off the year with an EWB-NL Hang-Out and this time it will be an international potluck dinner!

You are kindly invited to experience the EWB international culture night: share your own country’s snacks or just any favorite treats, have a drink and beat the cultural quiz at the end!

Do you want other people to know more about your country and find out more about others? Well, how about learning this through a fun international pubquiz? Tell us about your country, any fact, celebration or any information that could be interesting about your country (see sign-up form below). Out of these inputs, we will compile a pubquiz to play at the end of the evening. 

Nobody says that we cannot have fun and learn at the same time – come along, bring some food and enjoy yourself among likeminded fellows. At the end of the night, if the mood is there – we will move to a cozy bar in Delft to continue.
