NEOS at Members Meeting
Our guest speakers on the 16th of February were Rianne Scherpenisse and Rianne van de Laar from Neos Centraal Bureau. They spoke to us on a very sensitive, tragic and yet extremely important topic: Domestic Violence.
According to the World Health Organization (or WHO) statistics from November 2016,
violence against women - particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence - are
major public health problems and violations of women's human rights.
Global estimates published by WHO indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual
violence in their lifetime.

EEB: Tour and Tasting at Stadsbrouwerij
and Distillery, Eindhoven
During EEB's —Explore Eindhoven & Beyond— outing on the 18th of February we learned a lot about beers and liqueurs and we tasted several of those by touring the Stadsbrouwerij and Distillery.
In the past Eindhoven was renowned for its beer making. There were more than thirty breweries in the 18th century. Due to industrialisation and World War ll the city breweries were forced to close down, the last one going out of business in 1953.
A search for Eindhoven's brewing history eventually led to the start of the Stadsbrouwerij Eindhoven in 2015 by a group of beer 'aficionados'. Housed in the old Schellens textile factory by the Dommel the brewers developed their own recipes for draughts, blonds, 'Russian imperials' and limited editions. They also provide tasty meals and snacks.
Members and their partners enjoyed the 2016 edition of GLOW with a tour organised by EEB (Explore Eindhoven & Beyond). Braving the damp weather the group stopped at Usine and Vapiano's to warm up with a bite and a drink.
