The Indonesia Nederland Youth Society (INYS) is a youth-led organization which aims to better connect young Dutch and Indonesians to each other and to Indonesia-related opportunities.

The INYS shares the same vision as the “Indonesia Nederland Society” and is supported by the Indonesian Embassy in The Hague and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Our primary goal is to focus on how to improve the relationship between Indonesia and The Netherlands by connecting the youth of both countries.

To celebrate our new organization there will be an official inauguration event on Saturday October 19th 2013 at the Indonesian Embassy in The Hague. The event will be opened by Mr. Rennie Roos, Founder & President of the Indonesia Nederland Youth Society. After which the INYS will be officially launched by Mr. Witjaksono Adji, Charge d’Affaires of the Republic of Indonesia to the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Mrs. Marisa Gerards, Deputy Director-General for Political Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

After the official opening, the program consists of two sessions concerning the topics ‘Education’ and ‘Young Professionals’. Several speakers will shed light on their field of expertise, followed by a discussion between speakers and guests. Between these sessions there are also possibilities to network with all attending guests.

But this day is not only about presentations and networking, there will also be a fun quiz on the Indonesian and Dutch culture and guests will be able to obtain one or more tickets for the INYS raffle! The different prizes all have a link with the Indonesian and/or Dutch culture. So don’t hesitate to try your luck!
