SNV Netherlands Development Organisation celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, and Media Wise’s Emma Robson SNVEvent50Yearsmoderated its celebratory event at the Diligentia Theater in Den Haag at the beginning of October.The event looked back on the organisation’s 50-year evolution from a development aid volunteers agency run by the Dutch government, to in 2015 a self-financed development aid organisation focused on agriculture, renewable energy, and water, sanitation and hygiene. And it featured a debate led by Emma Robson that looked at the ideal development aid model of the future. The event was well attended and guests included His Royal Highness King Willem-Alexander and Jozias van Aartsen, Mayor of The Hague.
