The Yellow Bench

Ever heard of the Yellow Bench? This is on its way to becoming the global symbol of meaningful conversations, conversations that matter. We can overcome a lot just by talking to and trying to understand each other. The Yellow Bench wants to connect people, wherever they come from. Mayor of The Hague Jan van Zanen, for instance, who will come to the Yellow Bench at the Student Experience at around 14.00 hrs. Here’s looking forward to a good conversation!


The Hague, the city of peace and justice, is the perfect place to celebrate that we are free in the Netherlands and to show our support to those who are not. The higher education institutions in The Hague want to contribute to this. The theme of freedom not only fits our research and teaching but also affects our students. That is why we want to celebrate freedom with students, prospective students and anyone else who wants to join us. But we also want to encourage people to think about what peace and freedom mean to us all.
