This week HOPE XXL is visiting New York with the winners of the Lagerhuis final, the biggest national debating competition for high school students.

The winning team was given a tour of the United Nations Headquarters and visited the permanent mission of The Netherlands. Here they met with the Ambassador and watched the World Cup match Netherlands – Chile.  The photo shows our Ambassador with the group. 

In the coming days, HOPE XXL and the winners will explore New York further and have several more meetings. For HOPE XXL, the visit is part of our plan to present the global Liemers List to the United Nations in 2015.
